What’s the story?
Two-weight ONE Championship world champion Aung La N Sang is set to return to the Thuwunna Indoor Stadium in Yangon once again for his latest world title defence.
Aung La will put his middleweight world title on the line when he takes on undefeated Lebanese challenger Mohammad Karaki at ONE: PURSUIT OF GREATNESS on October 26 in Myanmar.
In case you didn’t know…
Myanmar-born “The Burmese Python” trains out of the Hard Knocks 365 camp in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in the US and has become arguably the biggest star in ONE Championship, capturing both the middleweight and light-heavyweight world titles for the Asian organisation.
Both title wins came during his current four-fight win streak, with all four wins taking place in Myanmar’s Thuwunna Indoor Stadium.
Aung La is Myanmar’s first sporting world champion and is afforded the sort of reception that is rarely seen in the world of sport, with his walkouts inside the country’s national indoor stadium becoming an iconic part of ONE Championship events in Yangon.
