Main Event Key Quotes

 

On being the best pound-for-pound fighter: “After beating Sitthichai [Sitsongpeenong], I became the number one fighter in the world in kickboxing in many rankings. After I beat Superbon, I beat all the best fighters. Now, they say I’m the king of kickboxing. Okay, no problem. I don’t like to talk about this. They may say, “Chingiz, you like to talk.” I don’t like this talk. For me, I like real talk – things that I can say are true,” Allazov

On the trilogy: “I like this fight. I’ve been waiting for this day. ONE gave me three opponents for my first defense, and I picked Grigorian. We fought 10 years ago. The first time was a no contest. In the second fight, I lost. After that, Marat and I moved up in the sport. We won tournaments. We won all the events. We won all the fights. I became number one in ONE Championship, the top fighter in my division,” Allazov

On his opponent’s weakness: “I fight with my intelligence. I’m going to fight. I only go to fight. I go to work. I will go to victory. We saw Marat’s fight with Tayfun [Ozcan]. He likes to counterattack, go forward, and block, then go forward again. But he made a mistake. He was only blocking and counterattacking. You will see it in this fight. I have many plans for this fight – work my speed, move, and go forward and backward. We have a game plan for this fight, but my real game plan, you will see it in my fight,” Allazov

On facing Allazov again: “Yeah, we know each other already. We fought against each other. At that moment, we were the best upcoming fighters. From those years, we changed a lot. Now, I’m seeing that he’s gotten much better in these last two years. I started fighting against the top guys in 2014. Yeah, we both changed a lot. We’ve both fought against the top, top, top guys. Now, he’s in prime time. He’s sharp, he’s ready. I know it will be a very hard fight. And I will be ready,” Grigorian

On his opponent: “I think he’s really explosive and fast. That’s what makes him very dangerous. He says [you’re] tough, strong, and aggressive, but not technical, and he’ll be the smarter fighter. Yeah, he is a good, smart fighter. What can I say? He’s doing very well. But every fighter has his own weak points. So, I will try to punish him in those moments of weakness,” Grigorian

On his opponent’s weakness: “Well, we have a game plan for [that]. I will try to use it, and if it works, it will be very good for me,” Grigorian

On his strategy: “Sometimes, I start slowly, and I get a little bit better and better. But in this fight, I will try to fight directly and not wait too much. So, I think it should be an explosive five-round fight. I think he will start very explosive in the first two-to-three rounds. And after that, he might go slower. I’m prepared for everything, so let’s see what happens,” Grigorian
