The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), recently held a press conference and face-off ahead of ONE: UNSTOPPABLE DREAMS. The press event took place on Monday, 14 May at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.
In attendance at the press conference were Chairman and CEO of ONE Championship Chatri Sityodtong, reigning ONE Women’s Atomweight World Champion “Unstoppable” Angela Lee, her opponent Mei “V.V” Yamaguchi, ONE Featherweight & Lightweight World Champion Martin “The Situ-Asian” Nguyen, his opponent Christian “The Warrior” Lee, Muay Thai legend Sam-A Gaiyanghadao, his opponent Sergio “Samurai” Wielzen, and Muay Thai legend Yodsanklai IWE Fairtex.
19-year-old Christian “The Warrior” Lee, younger brother of reigning ONE Women’s Atomweight World Champion “Unstoppable” Angela Lee, began his professional career on an absolute tear, railing off five straight victories by thrilling finish. He has impressed fans with his ability to seek out stoppage wins over top-caliber opponents featuring an exciting fan-friendly style. A former Pankration World Champion, Lee toppled Japanese veteran Kazunori Yokota in his most recent bout, winning via second-round guillotine choke to improve his record to 9-1. Riding an impressive four-bout winning streak with all four wins coming by finish, Lee is set to showcase his skills once more inside the ONE Championship cage. In his next bout, Lee has the chance to become a world champion when he challenges Martin Nguyen, the only man to ever defeat him, for the ONE Featherweight World Championship.
Christian Lee, ONE Athlete, stated: “All my life, all the hard work I have put into training, all the fights, they have all led me to this moment right here. I have waited long enough for this title shot, and I am prepared to leave it all inside the cage this Friday night. I have learned and improved a lot since our last match. Things will end differently this time around. Martin is a tremendous athlete and a noble warrior, but I am coming to take away the belt.”
