MYANMAR’S greatest sporting
hero ONE middleweight and light
heavyweight champion Aung La
N Sang successfully defended
his ONE Championship middleweight
title by beating Lebanon’s
previously undefeated fighter Mohammad
“O Lutador” Karaki, at
the ONE: Pursuit of Greatness,
last night, at Thuwunna Indoor
Stadium in Yangon, Myanmar.
A technically sound fighter, Aung La N Sang really saved the day for the Myanmar crowd within the three minutes period.
Even in the start, Aung La assaulted and dropped Karaki with his continuous punches.
Karaki somehow managed to get back on his feet, but “The Burmese Python” knocked Karaki down a second time and forced the referee to stop the bout at the 2:21 minute-mark.
“This is just the beginning,” Aung La said after the victory. “I’m gonna keep getting better and guarantee I’m gonna put on better shows.”
In the co-main event, Keanu Subba quieted the Myanmar crowd with a win over Phoe Thaw, the unbeaten local fighter, with a guillotine choke.
