Myanmar star Aung La N Sang, the ONE middleweight and light heavyweight world champion, revealed on his social media account that he is eagerly waiting for 13 October, when he will take on the Philippines icon Brandon Vera at an event entitled ONE: Century.
The fight is scheduled to take place at the Ryogoku Kokugikan Hall in Tokyo, Japan.
“Just a little over two weeks now and we are back in Japan. Steve Jobs once said, ‘If you want to go far, you go together!’ Thank you for going with me on this journey! Thank you for the love that you show me, my team is preparing me well and I can’t wait for Oct 13th,” Aung La N Sang posted on his social media page.
He also stated that weight and size are not a factor in the fight.
“I work with bigger guys, I work with taller guys, and I work with heavier guys than Brandon Vera,” Aung La N Sang stated.
“When fight night comes along, size and power are not going to be an issue,” he added.
“I think I match up well against him in all aspects of mixed martial arts.
My biggest strength would be my heart. I’m a grinder, and I fight with my heart. There is no quit in me.
He is going to have to do everything that he can, but I’m going to keep pushing forward, and that’s going to be the key in the fight,” Aung La N Sang stated.
“Everybody knows how explosive he is. Everybody knows the power that he has, but I’m going to grind him down and beat him,” he added.
Aung La N Sang and Brandon Vera could be described as the greatest rivals in ONE Championship history, according to the event’s organizers.
The event is being billed as the biggest event in martial arts history. It will also be the 100th show under ONE Championship, they stated.
