“It’s a make-or-break battle for me,” the former two-division ONE World Champion Aung La N Sang said ahead of his thrilling fight against Brazilian starfighter Leandro Ataides in the ONE middleweight clash on 30 July (tonight).
“But I know the work that I’ve been putting in, and I’m confident in my team. They’ve trained me good, and I’m very confident that I’ll come out on top in this bout, Aung La N Sang continued. Losing both World Titles made some sad feelings for Aung La N Sang but he has admitted to shining again on the stage.
“It is sad and depressing, but you got to analyze how the match went and analyze how you can improve and grow,” Aung La N Sang says.“My mindset is more of a growth mindset, so I really had to work on the things in the match that didn’t go well. It’s a learning experience for me, and it’s fine. As depressing as it is, as sad as it is, I take it as a lesson in life.”
“I focus on improving in my bad positions, focus on making sure I fight through every bad position, and just focus on the little details of where the head position is and implement my game plan instead of being worried about somebody else’s game plan and somebody else’s strengths,” he says. “Ataides has some holes in his striking,” Aung La N Sang says. “I think he’s very, very head-on in his wrestling and grappling as well, and I tend to do better with people like that.”
“I believe I do better on the feet, and I think I can negate his grappling and his wrestling,” Aung La N Sang says. “I see this bout being won on the feet. I see this bout being won with my movement and my speed. I see this bout being done with a knockout.” “I don’t doubt in my mind that I’m going to get my middleweight belt back,” Aung La N Sang says.
“I’ve done it once, and I’ll do it again. I’ll get my belt back, the Burmese Python admitted. Aung La N Sang vs Leandro Ataides fight will be in the fifth bout of the ONE: Battleground event which will launch tonight in Singapore starting from 7 pm of Myanmar Standard Time.—Ko Nyi Lay/ GNLM
