ONE League champion Anatoly Malykhin predicted the outcome of the main event of ONE Fight Night 16

Russian MMA fighter Anatoly Malykhin (13-0) commented on the main fight of the upcoming ONE Fight Night 16 tournament, where the ONE bantamweight champions (up to 65.8 kg) will meet in the main fight of the evening. Jonathan Haggerty (Muay Thai) and Brazilian Fabricio Andrade (MMA).

This fight will pit Haggerty against Andrade for the ONE Bantamweight Kickboxing World Championship (65.8 kg). The tournament will take place at the Lumpini Stadium in Bangkok.

– It will be a fight between two champions, and two champions cannot show a boring fight. When two champions face each other, it’s already major league, so everyone should watch this fight and not blink! — quotes Malykhin UN.

Andrade and Malykhin, who continue to hold the ONE heavyweight and light heavyweight MMA belts, share a friendly relationship – they have trained together at Tiger Muay Thai and MMA in Phuket, and both are preparing for upcoming fights under by Irish boxing coach John Hutchinson. .

“In my opinion, Fabricio’s decisive quality that can help him win is his willingness to go all the way. He is also very physically strong – Haggerty has never had such physically gifted opponents.

In recent years, Andrade competed only in MMA, but, in his own words, continued to train in kickboxing. He is undefeated in ONE and is 6-0 with 4 of those wins coming via KO/TKO. In February of this year, Andrade showed willpower and perseverance in a fight with John Lineker – in the fourth round he managed to win by technical knockout and became the owner of the bantamweight division belt.

But in the main event fight of the ONE Fight Night 16 tournament, Andrade has serious opposition in powerful striker Haggerty, whose victories include Muay Thai legends Nong-O Hama and Sam-A Gayanhadao. Malykhin does not detract from the merits of the Briton, knowing that he is currently one of the most successful drummers on the planet:

“Nobody counts Haggerty. He is a strong fighter with good timing and well trained. I think he will move a lot, try not to get stagnant, throw combinations, because I think he will rely on speed and combo attacks.

Malykhin believes Andrade’s power and aggression will carry him to victory in Bangkok:

— The force of pressure will prevail. I think Fabricio will win by knockout.

Fabricio Andrade will face Jonathan Haggerty in the main event of ONE Fight Night 16, which takes place on November 4 in Singapore.
