The lack of footwork that Iraj Azizpour possesses will be the cause of his downfall at ONE 165, according to Rade Opacic, who says, “He stands there and doesn’t move.”

Rade Opacic, a great competitor in the heavyweight division of kickboxing from Serbia, is getting set to face the most difficult challenge of his ONE Championship career to yet. And he wants to demonstrate that he is the most powerful and nefarious individual in the city.

Of course, this is easier to say than it is to execute, because the opponent that Opacic will be facing in the ring for the ONE Championship is not someone who should be ignored.

Iraj Azizpour, a formidable fighter from Iran, is scheduled to compete against Opacic at ONE 165: Superlek vs. Takeru. Taking place on Sunday, January 28th, the event will be aired live from the Ariake Arena in Tokyo, Japan.

In a recent interview with ONE Championship, Opacic expressed his excitement at the prospect of competing against Azizpour, citing the latter’s all-action fighting style as the reason for his excitement.

The spokesperson of the KBKS Team, who is 26 years old, stated:

“Fighting styles like this guy’s are among my favorites. He is very still and does not move at all. Despite the fact that he delivers a few spinning kicks, he remains in the same position, standing immobile. My favorite thing to do is to simply stand there and bang and see who is the strongest of the bunch. Therefore, that is something that is beneficial to me.

With two consecutive victories against elite opponents in Giannis Stoforidis and Guto Inocente, Opacic has won six of his last seven fights in ONE Championship. He has also won two of his most recent fights. If the Serbian were to win another fight, it would put him in a position to compete for the ONE Championship gold.

Rade Opacic looks to make a statement against Iraj Azizpour at ONE 165

Rade Opacic, a hard-hitting striker from Serbia, is getting closer to reaching his goal of winning the world championship. He is currently on his way to “the land of the rising sun.” Additionally, if Opacic is able to pull off a convincing victory over Iraj Azizpour at ONE 165, he may be the next contender for the ONE Championship gold.

There is currently no one competing for the heavyweight kickboxing belt. Nevertheless, Roman Kryklia, who is from Ukraine, is familiar with the Muay Thai counterpart, which is another alternative for the 26-year-old.
