Nong-O Gaiyanghadao retained his title at ONE Friday Fights 1 from the Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.
In the main event, Nong-O earned a third round knockout finish of Alaverdi Ramazanov to defend his bantamweight Muay Thai title.
Ramazanov came out firing in the first round, pushing Nong-O on the back foot with fast and powerful combinations. The Thai legend picked his spots, as he looked to attack the legs with chopping low kicks.
In the second stanza, Ramazanov continued to use his length to keep Nong-O at bay, tagging the defending World Champion with sharp push kicks, followed by a series of hooks.
Nong-O found his rhythm in the third round, as the hometown hero put the pressure on Ramazanov with a variety of strikes from mid-range. Sensing that the Russian was fading, Nong-O went on the offensive and punished his challenger with ripping shots to the head and body.
An explosive left hook to the liver sent Ramazanov crashing to the canvas, and he could not answer the referee’s 10-count.
In the co-main event, Prajanchai PK.Saenchai downed Kompetch Sitsarawatsuer.
