Chingiz Allazov’s remarkable run in the ONE Championship was extended with another statement win at ONE Fight Night 13, where he was competing.
Allazov successfully defended his ONE featherweight kickboxing world championship by winning the main event against Marat Grigorian and defeating him. Every time ‘Chinga’ has competed, he has improved, which has allowed him to keep his ranking as the best pound-for-pound kickboxer in the planet.
Although his performance against Superbon at ONE Fight Night 6 became the most memorable moment of his career to this point, the champion entered his first title defense more focused than he had been in any of his previous bouts.
Allazov demonstrated on August 4 that he is here to remain at the absolute top of the sport for the foreseeable future at the illustrious Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand. After losing to Grigorian 10 years ago, this victory served as evidence of how much further he has progressed as an elite fighter who is entering the prime of his career.
After he had won, the champion gave several post-match interviews for ONE Championship, and during those talks, he became emotional as he spoke about how significant this particular battle was for him.
After exacting his vengeance on his former adversary, Chingiz Allazov gave a speech in which he discussed the stakes that he had placed on this matchup and how crucial it had become to win at any cost:
“The belt is not of any significance. There is no alternative battle. In my life, in my career, and for my legacy, the only thing that matters is beating Marat Grigorian.
Allazov is not only one of the top fighters in ONE Championship, but he is also now leading the way for the organization right now, as he demonstrated by closing out another huge show for the promotion.
