Don’t know about that. He always seems to be in the same shape when he fights. I know a lot of fighters by who you can tell if they are prepped for a fight or think its a piece of cake. Giorgio isn’t one of them. But by that i guess he is indeed very effective. I would also call it determened and disciplined

I've never seen a fight where Petrosyan visibly out-sized his opponent.

He's had a long career too, and what we learn from the UFC, is fighters can't maintain extreme weight-cuts into their 30's. They can usually only pull it off for 3 years or so as their going into their prime.

Maybe because he's slightly bigger, but K1 max was restricted at 72.5 kg if i remember correctly. But that was an excellent fight between those 2. Souwer still fights but looking at this you can clearly see he lost his mojo. Still a legend though

great pick

Yes absolute top notch fights and fighters. Kraus and Masato both being feared and bold to each other. Buakaw and Andy Souwer fought multiple wars. Exciting times. And the whole K1 atmosphere was amazing, 20.000 people in the fight arena etc.

K1 is building again, hope they can come back to this. Love to see the multiple fights on 1 evening format come back

When is te last time you saw a fighter look like this?

RE: Georgio “the doctor” Petrosyan
they fought with more passion. the fans were more passionate. i remember when the japanese OLs were crying when Masato got beat up by Kraus.

every single max fighter was a character with a unique personality

Kraus was the good lookin' trailer trash euro

Souwer was the hard working no bs nordic

Masato was the pretty boy boxer

Buakaw was the chocolate boy wonder

Kohiruimaki was the crybaby

Sato was the Spider Assassin

totally agree

Petrosyan is from a diffrent breed. Always in shape and ready. Driven by perfection judging his style and character

RE: Georgio “the doctor” Petrosyan
Petrosyans latest fight.. a masterclass of Muay Thai boxing

Multiple-time kickboxing World Champion Giorgio Petrosyan faced two-division Lion Fight World Champion "Smokin" Jo Nattawut at ONE: HEROES OF HONOR in Manila. "The Doctor" attacked with fast and accurate boxing, mixing up his combinations throughout the three-round affair to score a unanimous decision victory. In addition, Petrosyan made history, as he was victorious in the first-ever ONE Super Series kickboxing bout.





Giorgio “The Doctor” Petrosyan did not earn his reputation as one of the world’s best kickboxers by accident.

The 32-year-old Milan, Italy resident has decimated the competition with surgical precision, and he added another world-class adversary to his list of victims on Friday, 20 April.

In front of a packed house at the Mall Of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines, Petrosyan turned up the heat on “Smokin” Joe Nattawut over three rounds in their ONE Super Series kickboxing clash. He then earned a unanimous decision victory in the co-main event of ONE: HEROES OF HONOR.



They do not call Petrosyan “The Doctor” for nothing, as he used his razor-sharp technique and bone crunching power to land stinging combinations throughout the opening round, and backed Nattawut up during almost every exchange.

Nattawut was not going to be deterred, however. The two-division Lion Fight World Champion continued to fire back with a series of head kicks that came within centimetres of earning him a highlight reel knockout. Still, Petrosyan connected with more accuracy throughout the opening round, as “Smokin” Jo focused on his kicking game.

It was a back-and-forth battle throughout the second round. Petrosyan fired away with punches to the head and body, and the Thai countered with a blistering series of kicks. Although Nattawut did a good job of landing strikes while he was back peddling, it was “The Doctor” who was constantly pressing forward with powerful strikes in an attempt to do the most damage possible with each punch and kick.



Petrosyan was looking for the knockout with almost every shot he threw, as he was ratcheting up the pressure with power behind his punches. Time and time again, he was digging to the body, and then going up to the head, which kept his rival off balance at every turn.

The Thai certainly made a strong showing against a true legend, but it was Petrosyan who once again earned his reputation as arguably the best kickboxer on the planet. He cruised to a unanimous decision victory after three rounds of action. “The Doctor” now sees his record at an eye-popping 96-2-2 (1 NC).

As the ONE Super Series moves on in 2018, Petrosyan will undoubtedly be a key star to watch. He will look to continue his reign of dominance over the sport of kickboxing, while a long list of potential opponents tries to find a way to dissect “The Doctor.”
