This helped the fighter make a name for himself. In the middleweight bout between them, he won by forcing the Chinese fighter Fan Rong to tap out in the second round by choking him with a ninja choke.After an action-packed first round, in which the two boxers traded good blows with each other, the action continued to heat up in the first minute of the second round.

After Aung La had a grasp of the move, he didn’t let go of it at any point. After a few moments, the player known as ‘King Kong Warrior’ surrendered.
