ONE Pursuit of Greatness featured a mixed-fight bill held at the Thuwunna Indoor Stadium in Yangon, Myanmar this past Friday (Oct. 26). A middleweight championship belt was contested in the main event, following a series of kickboxing and MMA bouts.
A two-division titleholder (middleweight and light heavyweight) Aung La N Sang faced Mohammad Karaki in defense of his ONE Championship middleweight strap. The scheduled for five rounds bout ended prior the final horn. The champion retained the belt scoring the first-round technical knockout win with punches that followed an uppercut, which as a result forced the referee to stop the contest.
“This is just the beginning. I’m going to keep getting better, and I guarantee that I’m going to put on better shows,” said Aung La N Sang after the fight. “Together, Myanmar, there are 60 million of us. If we unite and if we work together, we can achieve anything.”
In the co-main event featherweight Keanu Subba submitted Phoe Thaw in the first round. Also on the main card Tarik Khbabez came out victorious by way of TKO in the third round against Ibrahim El Bouni from their light heavyweight kickboxing encounter.
