Murad Ramazanov was slated to fight Hasegawa on this event. Ramazanov will seemingly not be able to secure a replacement opponent just a couple of days out from this ONE Championship extravaganza.
The undefeated Russian warrior will look to expand his record to 12-0 at a later juncture.
Ramazanov is 3-0 inside of the ONE Circle specifically and is coming off a win over former ONE welterweight world champion Zebaztian Kadestam. This transpired at ONE: Winter Warriors II via unanimous decision last December.
Ken Hasegawa off One: Bad Blood
Hasegawa has not entered the ONE Circle in close to three years.
Ken Hasegawa cut his teeth in a few promotions earlier on in his career with past pugilistic efforts under the Titan FC and Rizin banners.
The former DEEP openweight champion took part in what many see as the greatest fight in ONE Championship history.
His first fight against Aung La N Sang was an absolute classic inside the Circle. A true barnburner that saw both men fight valiantly until the final frame of the fight.
The pride of Myanmar halted Hasegawa with strikes to retain his ONE middleweight world championship at ONE: Spirit of a Warrior in June 2018.
Ken Hasegawa ultimately contended for the ONE middleweight title against Aung La N Sang across two bouts.
The championship rematch between the two saw N Sang stop Hasegawa in the second stanza via strikes at ONE: A New Era in March 2019.
That second bid for the ONE middleweight crown was the last time, as of this writing, that Hasegawa has competed.
