The nation of Myanmar celebrated as its world champion Aung La “Burmese Python” N Sang defied the odds — and two full weight classes — to defeat four-time Muay Thai and Kickboxing heavyweight world champion Alain “The Panther” Ngalani after an epic battle.
The pair faced off in an historic Open Weight Super-Bout, as the ONE Middleweight World Champion stepped up to face a heavy-handed heavyweight contender from Hong Kong in the main event of ONE: HERO’S DREAM in Yangon’s Thuwunna Indoor Stadium.
It was a victory for persistence in the face of overwhelming odds, as Myanmar’s Aung La N Sang tried three times to force hulking heavyweight Ngalani to submit, finally succeeding on his third attempt.
The victory sent the crowd inside the Thuwunna Indoor Stadium into raptures, as Myanmar’s first and only world champion overcame the odds to score a stunning win on an unforgettable night in Yangon.
After his victory, Aung La N Sang addressed the crowd, saying: “This is amazing. Thank you, Myanmar. I love you. I do this because I love you guys.”
Aung La N Sang’s stunning victory takes his career record to 21-10 (1 No Contest), and both men will now return to their respective weight classes. Ngalani will undoubtedly seek to continue his quest for the ONE Heavyweight World Title, while Aung La N Sang remains steadfast in building a remarkable legacy for himself and his nation in the middleweight division.
