Anatoly Malykhin continued his knockout streak with a second-round KO over Kirill Grishenko to claim the ONE Interim Heavyweight World Championship. The Russian behemoth keeps his unbeaten record clean and added another KO to his 100% finishing rate.
Malykhin is supremely confident, and his claim to being the best heavyweight in the world grows stronger by the day.

Jonathan Haggerty shined in the co-main event with a dazzling performance against #4-ranked flyweight Muay Thai contender Mongkolpetch Petchyindee. The Brit got off to a hot start before slowing down in the second frame, but he rebounded quickly to take the third round and the unanimous decision. The #2-ranked contender may have put himself back in line for a third title bout against Rodtang this year.
Flyweight Woo Sung Hoon made an impactful ONE debut with an 18-second knockout over Yodkaikaew Fairtex. The South Korean leveled the Thai with an overhand right and followed up on the ground to get the stoppage. Woo’s performance will thrust him right into the mix in the stacked division.
Danial Williams made his ONE debut in 2021 against Rodtang in a thrilling Muay Thai bout. Fast forward a year later, the Aussie dropped to strawweight for a mixed martial arts tilt against his idol, Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke. A beautiful body shot KO continued his ascent to stardom as one of the most exciting athletes on the planet, and in the process, he retired the former World Champion.
At heavyweight, American Odie Delaney put himself on the map with his debut victory over Thomas Narmo. The American Top Team product took the action to the mat and quickly submitted the Norwegian. Do not be surprised if Delaney is competing in high-stakes battles atop the card with another strong performance or two.
