By The Numbers: Timofey Nastyukhin vs. Lipeng Zhang


No one could have foreseen such a dramatic downward spiral for Timofey Nastyukhin.

The Russia Top Team product will look to re-establish himself as an apex predator in the One Championship lightweight division when he meets Lipeng Zhang as part of the ONE on Prime Video 15 main card on Friday at Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand. Nastyukhin steps back into the spotlight on a career-worst three-fight losing streak. He last competed at ONE on Prime Video 2, where he bowed to punches from Halil Amir in the second round of their Sept. 30, 2022 encounter. Zhang, meanwhile, has rattled off three wins across his past four outings. He last appeared on Sept. 29, 2022, when he dropped a unanimous decision to Saygid Izagakhmaev in their ONE 161 pairing.

As Nastyukhin and Zhang move ever closer to their looming showdown at 170 pounds, a look at some of the numbers that have accompanied them to this point:

33: Years of age for Nastyukhin, who was born on Nov. 24, 1989 in Soviet-controlled Kazakhstan.

7: Nastyukhin victories by knockout or technical knockout, accounting for 50% of his career total (14). His list of ONE victims: Eddie Alvarez, Rob Lisita, Yusuke Kawanago and Eduard Folayang. Nastyukhin holds four other victories by submission (29%) and three more by decision (21%).

1,071: Days since Nastyukhin last took the checkered flag. He was awarded a unanimous decision over Pieter Buist at ONE “Inside the Matrix 2” on Oct. 30, 2020.

5: Sub-minute stoppages on the Nastyukhin resume, though only one of them has occurred in One Championship. He wrecked Lisita with a punch and soccer kick just six seconds into their ONE “Kingdom of Champions” confrontation in 2016.

.725: Cumulative winning percentage between the six men—Amir, Saygid Guseyn Arslanaliev (twice), Christian Lee, Kotetsu Boku, Herbert Burns and Magomedsaigi Guseinov—who have defeated Nastyukhin. They sport a combined record of 73-27-2.

33: Years of age for Zhang, who was born in Tongliao, China, on March 10, 1990.

32: Seconds needed for Zhang to punch out Ruslan Emilbek Uulu at ONE “Only the Brave” on Jan. 28, 2022. More than a year later, it remains his fastest finish to date.
