Kiamrian “Brazen” Abbasov, 26, of Kyrgyzstan will challenge reigning ONE Welterweight World Champion Zebaztian “The Bandit” Kadestam, 28, of Sweden at “ONE: Dawn of Valor.” It will be the Kyrgyzstani challenger’s fourth ONE Championship bout.
ONE Championship will hold “ONE: Dawn of Valor” at the Istora Senayan in Jakarta, Indonesia on October 25, 2019. The title bout between Kadestam and Abbasov will be the main event.
Defending champion: Zebaztian Kadestam
Kadestam started training in Muay Thai when he was 12 years old, and later embarked on a highly successful professional career in the sport. Soon, he explored other disciplines, as he trained at Pancrase Gym in Stockholm, and also traveled to Thailand and the Philippines to sharpen his skills under famed martial artist Ole Laursen. “The Bandit” joined ONE Championship in May 2017, claimed the ONE Welterweight World Championship in November 2018 in Jakarta, and successfully defended the title for the first time this past March. Now Kadestam returns to the same venue where he won the gold for his second defense.
Challenger: Kiamrian Abbasov
Abbasov, a Prime Selection GP Welterweight Champion, was raised by a single mother in his hometown of Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan’s capital city. There, he began his martial arts journey with Greco-Roman wrestling, and later added boxing to his arsenal. Early in his career, he won two tournament championships, including a tournament in December 2016 where he beat three different men in one night. Today, he is one of Kyrgyzstan’s top mixed martial artists. In his most recent outing, Abbasov spoiled Yushin Okami’s promotional debut, defeating his decorated Japanese opponent by technical knockout. In Jakarta, he will challenge Kadestam for the ONE Welterweight World Championship.
Also, in the co-main event, ONE Lightweight Kickboxing World Champion Regian “The Immortal” Eersel of The Netherlands defends his title against countryman Nieky “The Natural” Holzken in a highly-anticipated rematch.
