John Lineker was able to turn his luck around this past weekend by competing at the illustrious Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.
At the seventh installment of ONE Fight Night, which took place earlier this year, the former ONE bantamweight champion was unsuccessful in his attempt to reclaim the championship that he had previously held.
In a rematch for the empty championship against Fabricio Andrade, ‘Hands of Stone’ was defeated by the better man on the night, forcing him to return to the drawing board and reevaluate his strategy.
On August 4, one of the most lethal knockout artists in the world made his return to the Circle, and he did so with the intention of putting the past in the rearview mirror and moving on with his life.
Following the announcement that Kim Jae Woong would be his return opponent, fans immediately began hyping the bout as a possible candidate for fight of the night, and it lived up to their expectations.
In spite of the fact that his rival gave a terrific performance, Lineker demonstrated that at this stage in his career, there is one thing that continues to be true, and that is the fact that you cannot count him out for even a moment.
The former champion flipped the script in the waning seconds of the bout and finished it off with another technical knockout victory, adding to his already outstanding finish rate.
Lineker demonstrated why he is a former world champion by confronting adversity and fighting his way through it. He dug deep to pull off a victory that was desperately required.
In the interviews he did after the event for ONE Championship, John Lineker reflected on his performance and stressed the need of winning at any cost as the primary lesson to be learned.
Lineker praised the work, stating, “It’s very good.” “When I was able to pull through and win, it was a tremendously satisfying feeling. This victory has made me very delighted. “
