“He’s still lacking in the striking department,” Oh Ho Taek says, referring to Shamil Gasanov’s stand-up arsenal as the most significant shortcoming of his performance.

The striker Oh Ho Taek, who hails from South Korea, does not believe that his future opponent, Shamil Gasanov, possesses striking skills that are comparable to his own. When the two of them meet later this week, he intends to take advantage of this particular occurrence.

Prime Video will broadcast ONE Fight Night 18 on January 12 from Bangkok, Thailand, featuring the two featherweight mixed martial arts combatants as the main event. This event is ONE Championship’s first live main show of the year, and it will take place at the Lumpinee Boxing Stadium. It will be broadcast live during primetime in the United States, and it will be free of charge to Prime Video users who are already in North America.

Oh Ho Taek conducted an evaluation of Gasanov in the lead-up to the fight, and he stated that although his Russian opponent is a well-known grappler, his stand-up game leaves a lot to be desired.

This information was disclosed by “Spider” in an interview with ONE Championship:

In addition to being a wrestler grappler, he is a powerful individual. The striking department is one area in which I believe he is currently weak.

During his most recent bout, which took place in March of last year, Oh Ho Taek was defeated by Kyrgyzstani challenger Akbar Abdullaev via technical knockout in the first round. This is something that he is hoping to rectify at ONE Fight Night 18, when he will attempt to achieve a victory that is unquestionably convincing.

His opponent, Shamil Gasanov, who is now coming off of a submission loss to the American Garry Tonon in July, is attempting to thwart his bid.

Oh Ho Taek cannot wait to mix it up with Shamil Gasinov

After suffering a devastating defeat in his most recent bout, the South Korean featherweight mixed martial arts artist Oh Ho Taek is eager to get back into action and make amends for his previous performance.

This opportunity will present itself on January 12 at ONE Fight Night 18 on Prime Video in Bangkok, Thailand, where the main event will be a fight against Shamil Gasanov, a contender from Russia.

Even though it has been about ten months since Abdullaev knocked him out with blows in the first round of their fight, he is now competing again.

According to a statement made by ‘Spider’ in an interview with ONE Championship, the confrontation with Gasanov is something that he is looking forward to because he was unsuccessful in his most recent bout.

A combatant who was thirty years old stated:

As is my custom, I went straight back to my workout routine, where I was silent and focused on my routine. I am looking forward to this match for a long time.

The Gasanov-Oh showdown is one of nine matches that will be available in the first primetime event that ONE Championship will host in the United States in 2024.
