Nong-O Gaiyanghadao is set to defend his bantamweight Muay Thai title against Alaverdi Ramazanov at ONE on Prime Video 6. The event is set for the Impact Arena in Bangkok on January 14th.
The fight was originally scheduled for ONE: ‘X’ in March but Ramazanov was removed from the card for reasons which remain undisclosed. Felipe Lobo replaced him and was stopped in the third round by Nong-O.
At ONE on Prime Video 1 the Thai successfully defended his bantamweight belt for the sixth time, stopping Lian Harrison with low kicks. Ramazanov was the promotion’s bantamweight kickboxing champion but he lost that strap to Captain Petchyindee.
But the Russian is riding a two fight winning streak and avenged his loss to Captain at ONE 161. He beat the Thai by split decision in the rematch.

As previously announced the card will feature a mixed rules fight pitting Stamp Fairtex against Anissa Meksen. Both women are highly experienced in Muay Thai and kickboxing.
But the fight will feature different rules in different rounds. The first three minutes will be Muay Thai but the second stanza will be MMA and the rounds will alternate between the two sports.
Stamp has plenty of MMA experience and holds a 8-2 record in addition to being the former ONE Championship atomweight Muay Thai and kickboxing champion. Meksen has enjoyed plenty of successive in the latter two sports but has never competed in the former.
