Celest Hansen will be back in action on Friday. The Australian atomweight has been matched with Yu Yau Pui in an atomweight bout at Lumpinee Stadium.
Hansen will be returning to a venue where she has had a lot of success at ONE Friday Fights 29. She won the Road to ONE atomweight tournament at the venue last year.
This will be her third time fighting at ONE Championship’s weekly events and the 29 year old will be looking to make it three wins in a row. She has previously beaten Kalaked Por Muangpetch and Dani Fall.
Pui already has three wins to her name on the weekly Lumpinee events. She has beaten TheStar Sit Chor, Devina Martin and Marie Ruumet. The winner could be a contender for a shot at reigning atomweight Muay Thai champion Allycia Rodrigues.
