Indeed, the youngest Lightweight world champion
A joyous Christian Lee at the Singapore Indoor Stadium last night after taking over the overcome Shinya Aoki’s One Championship light-weight belt.
Watch the full fight here:
Christian Lee ended up being the youngest One Championship world champ on Friday (May 17, 2019).
In front of a sellout group of about 12,000 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, the 20-year-old beat Shinya Aoki through a technical knockout 51 seconds into Round 2 to turn into one’s light-weight world champion for the very first time.
This was Lee’s 2nd chance at a globe title after a split decision defeat by Australia’s Martin Nguyen in their featherweight title fight last May.
Lee is a Canadian that has a Singaporean papa as well as fights under the Singapore flag like his sibling – females’ atomweight world champ Angela Lee – even though the brother or sisters are not residents.
