A middleweight championship rematch between Vitaly Bigdash and Aung La N Sang will serve as the headliner for One Championship 56.
The promotion announced the matchup on Tuesday. One Championship 56 “Light of a Nation” takes place on June 30 at Thuwunna National Indoor Stadium in Yangon, Myanmar, and will stream via online pay-per-view in the United States.
Bigdash claimed 185-pound gold with a second-round technical knockout triumph against Igor Svirid at One Championship 32 in October 2015. The 32-year-old Russian did not return to action until this past January, when he took a five-round verdict over Sang at One Championship “Quest for Power.” Bigdash is 9-0 as a professional, with eight triumphs coming inside the distance.
Before his loss to Bigdash, Sang had won four straight contest under the One Championship banner. “The Burmese Python” owns a 19-10 career mark, with seven wins via KO/TKO and 11 by way of submission.
