Hong Kong heavyweight fighter Alain “The Panther” Ngalani now has his own little piece of history inside the ONE Championship cage.
In front of a packed crowd at the Jakarta Convention Center, the Cameroonian-born kickboxer and four-time Muay Thai world champion recorded the fastest knockout ever in ONE’s heavyweight division, as he flattened former world title challenger Hideki “Shrek” Sekine in a record-setting 11 seconds.
After referee Yuji Shimada laid down the rules and both men touched gloves, the bell rang and Sekine charged recklessly towards Ngalani in an attempt to close quarters and utilise his black belt BJJ and judo.
Ngalani quickly backpedaled and seeing an opening, he stepped back and uncorked a right hand on the jaw that dumped Sekine to the ground, ending the bout in abrupt fashion.

A follow-up strike on the ground left no mistake that the bout was over. With the 11-second KO, Ngalani moved his record to 4 wins and 3 losses and may have put himself into contention for a potential showdown with ONE Championship’s heavyweight kingpin Brandon Vera.
As for Sekine, prior to signing with the Singapore-based ONE he was undefeated, but is now riding a two-bout skid.
