The following is an update on Giorgio Petrosyan provided by Chatri Sityodtong: “He’s backpedaled on some of the retirement talk he was giving”


Giorgio Petrosyan, who has won multiple kickboxing world titles, has expressed interest in competing again under the ONE Championship organization, as stated by Chatri Sityodtong, Chairman and CEO of ONE Championship.

After suffering a knockout defeat at ONE: First Strike in October 2021 at the hands of Superbon Singha Mawynn, the iconic figure of Italian martial arts has been having second thoughts about continuing his career.

However, because he is making consistent strides in his recuperation, the 37-year-old is optimistic about the possibility of returning to the world stage in the near future.

Sityodtong stated that he has had direct touch with the famed striker in an interview with South China Morning Post Martial Arts. He also stated that things are looking promising for the return of “The Doctor.”

In his words:

This time, I had a personal conversation with Giorgio Petrosyan. Approximately one month or two months ago, or possibly even two months ago, he expressed interest in having one more battle in ONE Championship in the month of March. As a result, he has toned down his previous retirement comments. And he indicated that he wants to have one more battle in the month of March of the following year.

Whether or if that occurs is still a question that has to be answered.

On the other hand, the creator of Team Multi Fight Petrosyan has achieved remarkable success over the course of twenty years at the highest level of martial arts, and he deserves to retire whenever he feels it is the appropriate time to do so.

Giorgio Petrosyan made his promotional debut against Jo Nattawut in April 2018 at ONE: Heroes of Honor. Prior to the fight, Petrosyan had won multiple world titles and had a winning streak of 42 bouts that spanned six years.

After that, he went on to earn another five victories against some of the sport’s elite competitors, including Petchmorakot Petchyindee, Sorgraw Petchyindee, Samy Sana, and Davit Kiria, before suffering an unlucky knockout loss to Superbon.
