ONE Championship Light Heavyweight World Champion Aung La N Sang will defend his Light Heavyweight title today against Reinier De Ridder in Singapore. Myanmar’s sports icon has talked about his confidence.
“I’m going to put on a great show. Don’t blink. This one’s going to end with a bang.” Aung La said.
“I flew out from the ‘States thinking that I’d be fighting Bigdash. I found out in transit that the opponent had changed. I’m grateful to have an opponent on Wednesday. Reinier was supposed to fight on the same card as well, so I’m sure he’s happy he has an opponent. I’m thrilled with the new opponent. I’m here to prove myself — no one else — and this is an excellent way to prove myself.
It doesn’t matter whom they put in front of me. I’m here to fight and put on a great show in front of the fans. It’s a better matchup, in my opinion.”
I knew the rematch was going to happen. I thought I was going to get through a few more people, but it’s okay,” the Burmese Python says.
“I like that Reinier is very confident. That should make for a good matchup. He can think what he wants. It doesn’t make a difference.
I’ve made adjustments since the last bout, and I know I can beat him. I’m preparing to be the best version of myself, and the best version of myself is capable of beating anyone in the world.”
“He’s a one-trick pony. I’m a more well-rounded fighter, and I know I’m going to break him and put him away.”
“You’re going to have to wait and see, but it’s going to be good, it’s going to be exciting, and I promise someone is going to be face down on the floor”, Aung La added.
Their fight will start around 9 am of Myanmar Standard Time and streamed live on the ONE Championship YouTube Channel. —GNLM
