Former ONE Championship double champion Aung La N Sang has revealed that he has signed a new bout agreement. The Burmese Python did not reveal the opponent but noted that he will be focussing on preparing for the fight.
“I don't know if I can announce this, but I've already signed a bout agreement. I can't tell who it is. But I've signed a bout agreement and I'm solely focused on this bout. As you know, I'm down to fight anybody in the world. So whoever it is, I'm down for it. But let me focus on my task at hand. Nothing else matters before that,” Aung La noted (h/t Sportskeeda).
The superstar from Myanmar is coming off a loss against Vitaly Bigdash and will be eager to bounce back when he steps into the ONE Championship circle again.
He also posted a picture on Instagram where he revealed that he is preparing for the showdown with his coach Henri Hooft at Kill Cliff MMA.
“Contract signed! @onechampionship I know my team @killcliff_fc will get me ready for war ????. @henrihooft,” Aung La wrote on his Instagram page.
A former Middleweight and Light Heavyweight Champion in ONE Championship, Aung La has been on a slow run lately. He dropped both his title to Reinier De Ridder initially. Aung La then staged a huge comeback by knocking out Leandro Ataides. However, the former champion suffered a loss at the hands of Vitaly Bigdash which forced him to go back to the drawing boards.
He had called out the likes of Yushin Okami and Andre Galvao earlier and it would be interesting to see whether ONE Championship will be going with either of these opponents.
