'Brazen' understands that he lost and is looking to improve on the weaknesses that he identified in the fight. He continued:
“When I was moving up a level, I lacked some skills, which I am working hard on now."
November 18 will see a world champion vs. a world champion showdown. Christian Lee will look to take the welterweight throne from Abbasov on ONE on Prime Video 4. All the action will be broadcast live on Amazon's streaming platform for all its subscribers.
Kiamrian Abbasov says no one can save Christian Lee
The ONE welterweight world champion Kiamrian Abbasov sent a cut-throat warning to his Singaporean-American opponent. The 29-year-old Russian fighter said that once the door closes, no one can help 'The Warrior.'
In an interview with ONE, 'Brazen' predicted how the fight would go. He said:
“A lot of things will go off plan for him. Naturally, he will complain to his dad or coach: ‘Coach, big problem. Kiamrian Abbasov is a big problem. Please, stop the fight. Stop the fight.’"
The Russian athlete continued:
“When the cage is closed, neither media nor his family will help him. It will be only I and he with all his big problems because of his desire to move up to my division.”
Abbasov is a dangerous fighter. He has won nearly half of his fights by way of KO/TKO, plus several more via submission. 'Brazen' aims to finish his opponents when they meet him in the ONE circle.
Russia's Abbasov will be looking to stop the ONE lightweight world champion Lee as he challenges for the welterweight throne. The showdown is booked for ONE on Prime Video 4 on November 18.
