Anatoly Malykhin won the interim ONE heavyweight title at ONE: Bad Blood.
Malykhin bested Kirill Grishenko in the main event to win the title and earn a bonus for his efforts.
The event took place from the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore.
Malykhin’s overwhelming speed and power was on display almost immediately as he stalked Grishenko across the Circle. A stream of heavy left and right hands forced the Belarusian on the defensive.
With Malykhin continuing to unload, it was only a matter of time before a fight-ending strike connected. That punch came late in the second round, with Malykhin separating Grishenko from his senses to score the thrilling stoppage victory.
In the co-main event, former ONE flyweight Muay Thai champion Jonathan Haggerty overcame a spirited effort from Lumpinee Stadium champion Mongkolpetch Petchyindee to score a unanimous decision victory.
