Kiamrian Abbasov faces James Nakashima at ONE: ‘Inside the Matrix’ Part II
Kiamrian Abbasov will be defending his welterweight title at ONE: ‘Inside the Matrix’ part II next Friday. Undefeated James Nakashima will be the challenger at an event which is being shown on delay from the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
Abbasov (22-4) beat Zebaztiam Kadestam by decision to claim the title at ONE: ‘Dawn of Valor’ last October. He is riding a four fight winning streak.
Nakashima (12-0) is a former LFA welterweight champion. He has earned his title shot by winning three fights out of three for the promotion.
The co-main event looks likely to be a title eliminator in the lightweight division. Pieter Buist (17-4) has been matched with Timofey Nastyukhin (13-4) and the winner could be set to challenge Christian Lee.
In the flyweight division Kyu Sung Kim (10-3) goes up against Yuya Wakamatsu (12-4). Meanwhile strawweight Eki Saputra (3-1) has been handed a fast turnaround after his win earlier this month. He faces Ramon Gonzalez (4-3).
