#8 Juan Cervantes vs Santino Verbeek
Named as one of the top Kickboxing bouts in ONE Super Series, and Top 5 Super Series bouts in Q3 of 2019, Juan Cervantes‘ ONE debut against Dutchman kickboxing star Santino Verbeek has been named as #8 greatest bout in ONE Championship history.
Though a knockdown in the first round ultimately led to a majority-decision loss, Cervantes showed great heart and athleticism to come back stronger in the second and third rounds, entertaining the crowd with his signature flying-knee.
#2 Jonathan Haggerty vs Rodtang Jitmuangnon
UK star Jonathan Haggerty exploded onto the ONE Championship in early 2019 and later went onto to beat veteran Sam-A Gaiayanghadao for the ONE Super Series Muay Thai Flyweight World title.
In his first defence, he faced the ‘Iron Man’ Rodtang Jitmuangnon. This crowd-pleasing bout was a five-round war between two of the most entertaining Flyweights on the ONE roster and deserves the spot as #2 all-time greatest bout in ONE Championship history.
