His sparring partners have felt the bone-crunching shots. And Aung La N Sang is adamant that he possesses more power than ever before as he prepares to put his ONE Middleweight World Title on the line.
“I feel it when I grapple and I feel it when I hit,” the ONE Championship star said of his new-found strength.
“The shots that I throw are a lot stronger now. We gauge it (strength) with my sparring partners. They tell me ‘man, you’re hitting me with some good shots. You’re hitting so hard’.”
A dual world champion, simultaneously holding the ONE Middleweight and Light Heavyweight World Titles, Myanmar’s Aung La revealed he had made a conscious effort to increase his power and explosiveness while honing his technique.
“We’ve been doing more weights and more footwork drills,” explained Aung La, who is based at Fort Lauderdale’s Hard Knocks 365 gym in Florida.
