Wrongly designed as RTL! Wrongly designed as RTL! Yangon, Aung La Nsang has never been defeated. It is the town where he was raised, where he went to college and finally became the defending champion in two divisions.
Which other words can you use to argue the tale of a contender who is now sold-out when he passes a football ground every single night on his way to work? That is the tale of Aung La Nsang.

Everyone who has been to one of the last battles in La Nsang will tell you that there is something out there.

He may be the best warrior he has met so far, but the Yangonese knows he will have an whole country behind him as he gets ready to protect his middle weight belts at ONE:
