Aung La N Sang targets Yushin Okami fight in ONE circle

Aung La N Sang wants to return to the circle and he hopes to have a dance partner in Yushin Okami when he does.

Aung La took to Twitter to “Thunder” for a potential fight in a few months. ‘The Burmese Python’ wrote:

“[Yushin Okami] shall we dance? June 3?

The next ONE Championship event after ONE: Eersel vs. Sadikovic on April 22 is an unnamed map on May 20. A fight in a month may not be ideal for 40-year-old Okami and 36-year-old Aung La.

However, a June 3 clash could be the perfect date for both fighters to enter a decent training camp.

Okami will be looking to build on a decisive victory in the promotion after losing in his first two fights in the circle. The Japanese veteran picked up a split decision victory over Agilan Thani to the delight of local fans in Japan on October 2019 ONE: Century.

Meanwhile, Aung La N Sang is coming off a tough loss to Vitaly Bigdash at ONE: Full Circle, ending a trilogy that spanned five years.

A clash between the two seasoned warriors is sure to produce fireworks as both fighters are always eager to put on a show for the fans.

Aung La N Sang and Yushin Okami agreed to fight before

This isn’t the first time the idea of ​​Aung La N Sang and Yushin Okami fighting has surfaced.

In October 2021, ONE Championship asked fans on Twitter who they wanted to see the Myanmar legend face. Okami offered his name for consideration. He revealed on Twitter that he had reached a verbal agreement to face Aung La, which “The Burmese Python” later confirmed.

Aung La replied to the thread saying it would be a great match.

While the fight between the two veterans wouldn’t materialize, Aung La still gave fans an incredible fight against Vitaly Bigdash last month. As they now look to the future, it could be the perfect time to revisit their old deal and finally hold the contest.
