The ONE heavyweight title unification fight between Arjan Bhullar and Anatoly Malykhin has been postponed until July 14

An explosive confrontation between two of the most prominent heavyweight fighters in the world is scheduled to take place on July 15 — July 14 in the United States — when Arjan Bhullar and Anatoly Malykhin collide in a ONE Championship title unification bout.

The momentous occasion will be held at Lumpinee Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand, an arena with a rich history of hosting thrilling combat sports matchups. This contest was originally slated for March; however, it was postponed due to some technicalities with the broadcasting schedule.

Despite the delay, the heavyweight championship bout between Bhullar and Malykhin remains one of the most highly anticipated fights of the year, and fans have been eagerly awaiting this colossal encounter.

Bhullar intends to make his much-awaited return to ONE Championship since he captured the heavyweight title by knocking out Brandon Vera in 2021. An injury prevented him from returning to the organization to defend his title as planned in September.

Bhullar, however, is eager to demonstrate that he’s back and better than ever, aiming to extend his current four-fight win streak, which includes two victories from competitive stints in the UFC.

On the other hand, the undefeated Russian, Malykhin, will fight to keep his momentum going at the ONE heavyweight division after winning the interim ONE heavyweight championship in 2022 before moving to light heavyweight and clinching another championship title with an impressive first-round knockout over Reinier de Ridder.

Malykhin’s unblemished 12-0 record with a 100% finishing rate over his career makes him a formidable opponent difficult to take down. There has been no official announcement yet regarding the venue for the bhullar vs. Malykhin showdown; however, the fighters’ fans can be assured that the much-anticipated collision would occur sometime in July.
