In the main event on ONE: Fists of Fury 2, underdog Kang Ji Won knocks heavy-favorite Amir Aliakbari out!

The start of the fight looked bad for the Korean Kang Ji Won. He was already bloodied up and cut from the eye due to just 2 heavy connections from the Iranian. Just as Amir Aliakbari was about to release flurries, Kang slipped from a jab and then connected a left hook directly to Aliakbari’s jaw, knocking him out in the process.

Kang Ji Won KO on Amir Aliakbari

Kang Ji Won stays undefeated with 5 wins and having 2 consecutive wins against Iranians. The Korean definitely shocked the world and scored a very big upset. Amir Aliakbari was sought to be the next big thing in the ONE Championship Heavyweight Division, and was trashing Brandon Vera, since he signed in the promotion.

Kang Ji Won continues to deliver and impresses. Make sure you stay updated as he will be fighting again at ONE on TNT II, April 14!
