The promotion looks to work out any issues with the champion.

ONE Championship has no plans to terminate Chingiz Allazov's contract prematurely, a credible source has told Nicolas Atkin. The reigning Featherweight kickboxing champion's deal is set to expire in December 2026.

According to the insider, ONE Championship is committed to working through any issues that may arise with Allazov. The organization aims to maintain a positive relationship with the champion as they navigate the remainder of his contract. Throughout the last year, fans of ONE Championship have seen Strawweight champion Jonathan Di Bella and former Atomweight title challenger Anissa Meksen work through similar issues with the promotion.

Nonetheless, the source also emphasized that ONE Championship is prepared to enforce its legal rights globally, especially since the Azerbaijani-Belarusian fighter made it clear that he would like to compete closer to home. It remains to be seen if both parties can make amends and move forward together.
