Watch moment ONE Championship kickboxer Stoforidis brutally KOs rival with left hook despite being floored at SAME time

A spectacular DOUBLE knockout almost occurred in ONE Championship’s first card of 2022.

Asia’s biggest combat sports promotion returned to action on Friday afternoon for ONE: HEAVY HITTERS!

Giannis Stoforidis and Beybulat Isaev both landed huge left hooks 26 seconds into their showdown
Both light-heavyweight kickboxer were floored – although Isaev was out cold

And the heavy hitters were on display in the curtain jerker for the main card.

Light-heavyweight kickboxers Giannis Stoforidis and Beybulat Isaev set the tone for the remainder of the show with a barnburner of a one-rounder, which ended in insane circumstances.

A mere 26 seconds into the bout, the pair were BOTH floored after landing hard left hooks on the chin.

But the thundering shot landed by Greece’s Stoforidis separated Isaev from consciousness and earned him a huge victory in his ONE debut.

Fight fans across the world were left stunned by the knockout, which was eerily similar to Matt Mitrione’s KO of MMA legend Fedor Emelianenko at Bellator NYC in 2017.

One shocked viewer said: “Double homicide.”

Another said: “Double KO almost happened FRICK.”

And another said: LMAO BRO THIS WAS CRAZZYYYYY!”

One remarked: “Bonkers.”

Another chimed in: “INSANITY.”

Commentator Michael Schiavello lost his mind, shouting: “Smack bang, smack bang! He’s out, he’s out! Stoforidis!

“Bravo, Stoforidis! Bravo, Stoforidis! It’s a win for Greece, it’s a win for Giannis Stoforidis!”

Victory for Stoforidis snapped a two-fight winning streak for Russia’s Isaev.

It also saw him bag the second-fastest KO victory in the history of ONE’s Super Series.
