One Championship: Quest for Gold is on Friday, 23rd February at Thuwunna Indoor Stadium in Yangon, Mayanmar. This card is stacked with talents and living legends of the sport. In the main event, Mayanmar national hero and ONE Middleweight World Champion, “The Burmese Python” Aung La N Sang, will attempt to ignite the entire nation once again by taking on Brazilian powerhouse Alexandre Machado for the vacant ONE Light Heavyweight World Title. The co-headliner is no less epic, with two of the world’s best lightweights facing off in Ev Ting and Ariel Sexton. Our predictions for the card are ready, as always the shadowed fighter is the one that we predict to lose their fight. Our winner picks are:
Aung La N Sang will take the win over Alexandre Machado for the Light Heavyweight World Championship. Aung La N Sang is national hero in Mayanmar and there is no way that he will lose on his homeground.
Ev Ting will take the win over Ariel Sexton. Ev Ting has the quality to end the fight via submission or KO. He will choose the way when the opertunity presents it self in the first or the second round.
Phoe Thaw another hometown hero in Mayanmar undefeated with the record 5-0 and four fights with TKO. Thaw will win via first round TKO over Sor Sey from Cambodia.
Amir Khan is only 23 years old and has the record 9-1 in the ONE Championship 8 of his wins has been after stoppages. We think he will countinue on his winning streak and get the win over Timofey Nastyukhin. 2nd round TKO.
Daichi Takenaka has the record 10-0-1 and his last win was over Alan Philpott via 1st round Rear-Naked Choke. We think what it is needed to get the W over Dae Hwan Kim.
