For world champion in one sport, Regian Iersel, it helps to have the right technique.

‘The Immortal’ proved this true again in his final fight, defeating his opponent in just 46 seconds, which he said was a product of things he worked on in training.

Regian Eersel successfully defended ONE’s lightweight title in Muay Thai by eliminating Russian challenger Dmitry Menshikov in a one-minute title showdown at ONE Fight Night 11 on Prime Video on June 9 in Bangkok.

He connected a well-placed left hook to the opponent’s head which was enough to send Dmitry Menshikov to the mat and render him unable to continue.
