For the second time, Han Zi Hao, 22, of China emerged victorious in ONE Super Series, the striking-only league of ONE Championship. On October 26, 2018, the Top King Muay Thai World Champion competed in a kickboxing bout in the bantamweight division at “ONE: Pursuit of Greatness.”
Featuring three ONE Super Series matches, “ONE: Pursuit of Greatness” took place at the Thuwunna Indoor Stadium in Yangon, Myanmar. In the sixth bout of the evening, Han faced Ryan “The Filipino Assassin” Jakiri, 26, of the Philippines, who was making his ONE Championship debut.
Han was coming out of a ONE Super Series victory against Stergos “Greek Dynamite” Mikkios, 28, of Greece. At “ONE: Pursuit of Greatness,” the Chinese kickboxer weathered an early storm from Jakiri to notch an astonishing first-round knockout victory.
Jakiri came out very aggressive in the opening frame, clobbering Han with well-timed punches and lashing low kicks. However, it was the Chinese kickboxer who had the last laugh as he uncorked a counter right cross that instantly turned the lights out on his Filipino opponent.
