“For some cause, I wish to lean in the direction of Ritu”

Aung La Nsang is difficult at work, finally seeking to reclaim the belts that had been lifted off his shoulders earlier this 12 months. In his down time, the previous champion makes it some extent to catch some wonderful ONE Championship fights.

One combat that pursuits La Nsang is the atomweight showdown between former two-sport world champion Stamp Fairtex and wrestling phenom Ritu ‘The Indian Tigress’ Phogat.

Stamp and Ritu sq. off within the ONE Girls’s Atomweight World Grand Prix Championship Ultimate, which matches down at ONE: Winter Warriors on December third, reside from the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Talking to ONE Championship in a latest interview, Aung La Nsang shared his championship choose.. Right here’s what he needed to say:

“I wish to lean in the direction of Ritu. For some cause, I wish to lean in the direction of Ritu. However you possibly can’t depend Stamp out, you understand, you possibly can’t depend Stamp out. However I simply assume that Stamp form of waits somewhat bit an excessive amount of and Ritu is extra head on, so far as the wrestling goes. She’s going to have the ability to take Stamp down. And so I will lean in the direction of Ritu, however Stamp has an important likelihood towards Ritu, due to her caliber of putting. I imagine she has like 100 fights, you understand, since she was a child. Very skilled. And one punch or one kick can end the combat, or one elbow or one knee may end the combat. It is a very attention-grabbing matchup, and I sit up for it.”

It’s an attention-grabbing matchup certainly, and Aung La Nsang has each proper to be pumped to observe it.

Aung La Nsang didn’t assume Stamp Fairtex or Ritu Phogat would make it to the finals

Surprisingly, Aung La Nsang didn’t imagine both of the 2 would make it this far.

Now ranked No. 2 within the atomweight division, Stamp Fairtex needed to energy via Alyona Rassohyna and Julie Mezabarba to make the ultimate spherical. Equally, Ritu Phogat overcame stiff challenges from Meng Bo and Jenelyn Olsim to search out herself within the No. 4 rating within the division.

“To be sincere, I did not count on Ritu or Stamp to make it that far, into the finals. I believed, you understand, the extra skilled fighters, like Meng Bo can be within the last. However stylistically, they’re younger, hungry. Stylistically, one’s a wrestler and one’s a striker. However each of them are blended martial artists. However, you understand, robust go well with, one grew up wrestling, one grew up Muay Thai. It’ll come right down to who’s in a position to impose their recreation plan and who’s in a position to negate their opponent’s recreation.”

The winner of the distinguished match will earn the correct to face division queen Angela Lee for the ONE ladies’s atomweight world title someday in 2022. Lee is at present deep in coaching, making ready for her inevitable return to the Circle.

Aung La Nsang believes each Stamp and Ritu pose actual threats to Lee’s reign.

“I imply, it actually will depend on how they put together for it, how they recreation plan for it, however so far as the talent set goes, I feel Stamp’s putting is healthier than Angela’s. And so far as wrestling goes, I do imagine that Ritu’s wrestling is healthier than Angela’s. So that they do have some hazard for the reigning queen. And I imagine that whoever wins this may give Angela a superb combat, for positive.”
