5 March 2021 – Singapore: The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), returned Friday with ONE: FISTS OF FURY II. The explosive card featured five mixed martial arts fights, one Muay Thai bout, and a plethora of exciting finishes.

In the main event, undefeated South Korean heavyweight “Mighty Warrior” Kang Ji Won shocked the world with a first-round destruction of highly regarded Greco-Roman Wrestling World Champion Amir Aliakbari, spoiling the latter’s ONE Championship debut.

Aliakbari was aggressive early, stalking Kang along the Circle Wall. The heavy-handed Iranian then hurt Kang with a pair of monstrous right hands, which created damage around the left eye. As Aliakbari pressed forward, however, the South Korean avoided a strike and connected with a short left hook to the jaw, which dropped the Iranian and instantly finished the fight.
