Yesterday, UK #1 Juan Cervantes made his ONE Championship debut against tough Dutch kickboxer Santino Verbeek in a three-round war that didn’t fail to please the crowd.
Cervantes was caught with a clean right-hand in the opening round, taking an eight count and losing the round 10-8.
In the second, Cervantes was a lot more active, mixing up his strikes with punch combinations and landing chopping low-kicks, as well as attempting his signature flying knee multiple times which had the crowd on their feet.
In the third round, the UK star was a lot more dominant, forcing the Dutchman to retreat after landing a textbook flying knee and following with a overhand-right which wobbled Verbeek, but inevitably didn’t do enough to catch up on the points lost in round one.
