Lebanese MMA fighter Karaki says he is confident there will be no pressure for the ONE middleweight world title bout against Aung San Suu Kyi and will be unbeaten.
A pre-match press conference and player introduction ceremony for the Pursuit of Greatness on October 26 will be held on October 24 in Junction City, Yangon. The introductory ceremony featured the introduction of all the players who will compete in the 11-match series, with the main duo, Aung Lan San and Karaki, training on stage.
“This is a very important event in my life,” Karaki said. This is the first time I have challenged the world champion and I am well prepared. Aung San Suu Kyi is one of the best MMA fighters in the world today. He has to compete in his country, but there is no pressure. He has competed with home players in the past. This is not a problem for me. The key is to prepare yourself well. I also studied Aung Lan San’s events. “I believe I can maintain my unbeaten record.” Karaki started his MMA career in 2014 and has won nine fights in four years. These matches consisted of eight knockout matches in the first round, with only one match being decided by a referee.
