Aung La N Sang to face Alain Ngalani in first-ever ‘David vs Goliath’ ONE Championship super bout

ONE Championship has just announced the complete bout card for ONE: HERO’S DREAM, set for the Thuwunna Indoor Stadium in Myanmar on Nov 3.

In the main event, ONE Middleweight World Champion Aung La N Sang of Myanmar will take on Muay Thai heavyweight world champion Alain Ngalani of Hong Kong in an open weight contest. The ONE Middleweight World Championship will not be on the line.

32-year-old Aung La N Sang is one of Myanmar’s most successful athletes. He has earned the moniker of ”Burmese Python” due to his constricting style of martial arts.

Born in Myitkyina in the mountainous Kachin State, he belongs to an ethnic minority known as the Kachin. In his most recent outing, Aung La stunned former champion Vitaly Bigdash of Russia in a highly-anticipated rematch to be crowned the new ONE Middleweight World Champion. 

Aung La's opponent, Alain Ngalani, is a heavyweight world champion in Muay Thai and kickboxing who holds a 25-7-1, 2 NC kickboxing record that includes 23 knockouts.

He trains out of Impakt MMA in Hong Kong, but is originally from Cameroon. He is known for possessing a terrifying combination of power and speed, and is always looking to end matches early.

Said Chatri Sityodtong, Chairman and CEO of ONE Championship, about the upcoming mega-bout:

“For the first-ever ‘David vs Goliath’ super bout in ONE Championship history, I am thrilled to announce that ONE Middleweight World Champion Aung La N Sang will face Muay Thai heavyweight world champion Alain Ngalani in a five-round open weight contest. 

"It’s going to be another memorable night of action for fans in Yangon and from all over the world. Get ready for some major fireworks!”
