Duy Nhat, the “monument” of Muay Thai Vietnam, will take on young Malaysian fighter Azwan Che Wil in the flyweight on the opening day of the ONE Championship tournament. 

Decorated Duy Nhat has dominated both domestic and international tournaments, with his peak being his victory over young Muay Thai star Victor Pinto at the Thai Fight Vietnam 2015. In 2019, Duy Nhat has also claimed two consecutive victories at the World Lethwei Championship.
