'Game Over' Arian Sadikovic discusses his title shot

The German kickboxer has experience fighting in GLORY kickboxing and ONE Championship. Ahead of his title shot on ONE 156: Eersel vs. Sadikovic, he sat down with ONE Championship in an interview to discuss the fight.

He told ONE how happy he is for this crowning opportunity:

“I was very happy when they told me I was getting a title shot. I told them, ‘Of course, I want that.’ Getting this title shot is definitely the best moment of my career. This is the best moment of my life fighting in this sport.”

His opponent will be the most challenging fight of his career. Defending champion Eersel is on an 18-fight win streak, and most of these were defending his Lion Fights and ONE Championship title. Sadikovic explains how he sees the fight going:

“My boxing skills are better [than Eersel’s]. I’m faster, but let’s not talk too much about this. Let’s see on the 22nd. Some guys talk a lot, talk a lot of s*** [before the fight], and they lose. So we will see on the 22nd... Like always, I’m a fighter who’s going for KOs. The dream ending for me is a good right hand to his face and knock him out. That’s my dream.”

On April 22 at ONE 156: Eersel vs. Sadikovic, the German kickboxer will look to leave Singapore carrying ONE Championship gold.
