Video: Halil Amir has Timofey Natyukhin perform the flips in One debut


Halil Amir had a ONE Championship debut to remember.

An undefeated 28-year-old fighting out of Turkey, Amir (8-0) demolished top welterweight contender Timofey Nastyukhin with a savage barrage of punches early in the second round at ONE on Prime Video 2, which took place Friday night at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore. Amir attacked Nastyukhin in the first round with a brutal right hook. The veteran was left on his back and then Amir unleashed a torrent of punches, which forced Nastyukhin into the splits. Referee Herb Dean intervened.

The official time of the stoppage came at :58 of Round 2.

“It doesn’t matter for me, I will knock everyone out who is in front of me,” Amir said afterward through a translator.

Nastyukhin (14-7) is best known for his 2019 knockout of former UFC lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez. With his performance on Friday, he’s now lost three straight bouts in the ONE Championship cage.
