This might be the upset of the year where kickboxing is concerned. Petrosyan’s brother Armen weighed in on his condition telling ONE FC commentator:
“So many people asking me about Giorgio’s condition,” ONE commentator Michael Schiavello tweeted on Saturday. “His brother Armen Petrosian just informed me that Giorgio has a broken jaw and undergoes surgery today.”
“Prayers for the greatest and wish him a smooth surgery and swift recovery. God bless you, Giorgio,” added Schiavello, who was ringside for the stunning knockout.
