Capitan Petchyindee

ONE Championship kicked off their 2021 campaign in Singapore on Friday, January 22, with ONE: Unbreakable.

The six-bout card featured five finishes including in the main event as Capitan Petchyindee Academy ousted Alaverdi Ramazanov for the ONE Bantamweight Kickboxing World Championship.

See how all of the action went down in The Lion City with this recap of ONE: Unbreakable.


Main Event: Alaverdi Ramazanov vs. Capitan Petchyindee Academy

Capitan Winner by Knockout

Round 2 - 1:56

The first round was a blitz from both men, but it was Capitan's forward pressure that gave Ramazanov issues. Those issues grew in the second round with the Thai star walking down his prey and digging his shin into the Russian's legs and body repeatedly. Eventually, with Ramazanov against the Circle Wall, Capitan scored with a right hook to the body and a straight right to the head to put the champion down and take his crown.

Shinya Aoki vs. James Nakashima

Aoki Winner by Submission

In the co-main event, Shinya Aoki added James Nakashima to his long list of victims with a crushing neck crank in the first round. The magician continues to inspire his legion of fans and re-enters the lightweight title picture with his third-straight victory.

Rade Opacic vs. Bruno Susano

Opacic Winner by TKO

In heavyweight kickboxing action, Rade Opacic looked dominant once again with a TKO over Bruno Susano.

Zebaztian Kadestam vs. Gadzhimurad Abdulaev

Abdulaev Winner by Submission

Gadzhimurad Abdulaev made a statement in his debut by knocking off the former ONE Welterweight World Champion with a quick face crank submission. Abdulaev made it look easy which could elevate him into immediate contention as an undefeated athlete on the rise.

Meng Bo vs. Samara Santos

Meng Winner by Unanimous Decision

#2-ranked atomweight contender Meng Bo cruised to a unanimous decision win, but Brazilian Samara Santos made it a more difficult 15 minutes than she had expected. Still, the Chinese contender got the W and looks forward toward the ONE Atomweight Grand Prix.

Lito Adiwang vs. Namiki Kawahara

Adiwang Winner by KO

The show opened with an emotional performance from Lito "Thunder Kid" Adiwang who had recently lost his mother. He dedicated his performance to her and showed out with a big second-round knockout.

The 2021 Diamond Nationals took place on October 8th and 9th, the first time the prestigious event has been hosted since 2019. World class competitors gathered in Minneapolis, Minnesota to test their skills in forms, weapons, point sparring, and more.

In the early 2010's, Ken Warner (otherwise known as ZenInc on YouTube) always shared his "Top Five" on Facebook after major sport karate events. Reflecting on these posts has inspired me to write a top five article of my own for the Diamond Nationals, and I plan to continue writing these articles after each tournament I attend. Special thanks to Ken Warner for his contributions to documenting sport karate history. Without further ado, here is Jackson's Five for the Diamond Nationals.

No charges will be brought against Liddell or his wife, Heidi Northcott, relating to the dispute which caused police to be summoned to their home and ended in Liddell's arrest.
