MYANMAR’S sports icon and former two-division of ONE Champion World Champion Aung La N Sang will fight against Brazilian giant fighter Leandro Ataides in the middleweight clash of the ONE Championship event named ONE: Battleground at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore on 30 July.
Besides being tied for most knockouts in the middleweight division, both fighters will give their best of all to earn a rematch against reigning ONE Middleweight World Champion Reinier De Ridder.
