John Lineker, a former ONE bantamweight world champion, created a name for himself by putting people to sleep with his nuclear fists. He won the title for the first time in 2013.
After annihilating the competition in North America and, more recently, in Asia, the mere mention of the terrible appellation “Hands of Stone” is enough to send shivers down the spines of those who are competing against them.
Lineker contends that the reason he is able to generate highlight reel-worthy knockouts is due to his acute attention to detail as well as his technical abilities, despite the fact that his naturally freakish power turns are what most people notice about him.
In an interview that was conducted exclusively for ONE Championship, the knockout artist, who is 33 years old, stated:
“I have a lot of faith in my ability to knock people out. I have a lot of faith in my ability to land punches. However, it is very evident that merely relying on strength alone would not be sufficient to accomplish this goal. I believe that the two things ought to be related to one another.
In the end, Lineker is not just some stupid headhunter who flings wild haymakers into the wind in the hopes that they would land on their target.
The Brazilian bomber’s savage finishes of Troy Worthen, Kevin Belingon, and Bibiano Fernandes inside the ring are evidence that each attack he fires comes with deliberate accuracy. He demonstrated this by knocking out all three of his opponents.
Lineker hopes to demonstrate that there is, in fact, some logic behind his seemingly irrational decisions at ONE Fight Night 13: Allazov vs. Grigorian, which will air on Prime Video on August 4.
In a three-round slugfest, the American Top Team affiliate will attempt to outstrike Kim Jae Woong, who is also a heavy-hitter.
The top-ranked bantamweight will undoubtedly have his work cut out for him when facing a skilled striker like ‘The Fighting God,’ who is famous for his own ability to cut angles and score wild finishes.
At ONE Fight Night 13, let’s discover who has the stronger chin in this fight that’s sure to be a barnburner.
Prime Video subscribers in the United States and Canada will not have to pay anything extra to see the nine-bout extravaganza that will take place at Lumpinee Stadium in Bangkok.
