Aung La N Sang will defend his ONE Championship middleweight crown on June 29 on the “Spirit of a Warrior” fight card from Thuwunna Indoor Stadium in Yangon, Myanmar.
Aung La N Sang has had a great deal of success in Yangon as of late. His three most recent fights all took place in Yangon. During that stretch, Aung La N Sang went 3-0 with two stoppage victories. In June he claimed the ONE Championship middleweight crown with a five-round decision win over the previously unbeaten Vitaly Bigdash. Aung La N Sang added the light heavyweight title to his trophy case in February with a 56-second knockout of Alexandre Machado. Between those two title-winning contests, Aung La N Sang fought in an open weight bout where he stopped Alain Ngalani via guillotine choke submission at the 4:51 mark of the first stanza. Aung La N Sang’s record stands at 22-10.
The 32-year-old confirmed his upcoming title defense on Saturday while at Crazy 88 MMA in Elkridge, Md., one of the gyms he trains at while at home in Maryland. Aung La N Sang left Maryland on Saturday evening to make the 16-hour drive to Fort Lauderdale, Fla. where he will train at Henri Hooft’s Hard Knocks 365 for his first title defense.
