Agilan Thani will face Kiamrian Abbasov at ONE: Destiny of Champions on 7. December
Former ONE Welterweight World Title challenger Agilan Thani is one of the most remarkable athletes Malaysia has ever produced. Ever since making his debut as an amateur, the man they call “Alligator” has torn through the competition. Unbeaten as an amateur, Thani captured a Malaysian national championship before turning professional, winning six bouts in a row on the global stage of ONE Championship to earn a shot at the title. The top contender trains daily at Monarchy MMA in Kuala Lumpur but also regularly travels to the United States to sharpen his skills at the world-famous Team Quest. His next opponent is Kiamrian Abbasov.
A Prime Selection GP Welterweight Champion, Kiamrian Abbasov was raised by a single mother in his hometown of Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan’s capital city. There, Abbasov began his martial arts journey with Greco-Roman wrestling, and later added boxing to his arsenal. After building a capable all-round game, Abbasov felt he was ready for a new challenge when he was 18 years old, and set his sights on competing in the cage. He would prove to be a talented prospect, and strung together four victories to begin his professional career. Early in his career, he won two tournament championships, including a one-night tournament in December 2016, where he beat three different men in one night. Today, he is one of Kyrgyzstan’s top martial arts athletes. He finds his way back to the ONE cage against Agilan Thani.
