Aung La Nsang faces Vitaly Bigdash at ONE: ‘Full Circle’
La Nsang (27-12-0-1) is one of the most popular fighters on the roster and a former middleweight and light heavyweight champion. He lost both his titles in 2021 but got back to winning ways at the end of the year, beating Leandro Ataides.
Bigdash (11-2) did not fight at all in 2019 or 2020 due to a combination of illness and injury. He returned to action last month with a submission win over Rong Fan.
The two first fought in 2017 with La Nsang accepting a last minute matchup against Bigdash who held the middleweight title. Despite the lack of preparation the Burmese fighter went the distance, dropping a decision to the champion.
The following year the two men rematched in Myanmar. This time it was La Nsang who got the decision win, sending the Yangon crowd into a frenzy.
This is the third time the trilogy fight has been booked with the previous two both falling through due to Covid-19.
Meanwhile Roman Kryklia will defend his kickboxing title against Murat Aygun at ONE: ‘Full Circle.’ That bout has also been postponed on multiple occasions.
There will be a Muay Thai title fight on this card. Petchmorakot Petchyindee defends his featherweight title against Jamal Yusupov.
As previously announced middleweight title fight will headline ONE: ‘Full Circle’. Reinier de Ridder is set to defend his belt against Kiamrian Abbasov at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on February 25th.
De Ridder (14-0) holds both the middleweight and light heavyweight straps. The Dutchman is undefeated and earned both titles by beating Aung La Nsang.
Abbasov (23-4) holds the welterweight title although that won’t be on the line next month. The Kyrgyz fighter is riding a five fight winning streak.
