ONE Championship has just crowned the very first female champion in its striking-only league ONE Super Series. She is Kai “Killer Bee” Ting Chuang, 23, who is training out of Iron Boxing Gym in Nantun, Taichung, Taiwan.
Representing Chinese Taipei, Chuang enlisted the help of her coaches and teammates at Iron Boxing Gym in her ONE Super Series Kickboxing Atomweight World Championship bout. The newly crowned champ gratefully acknowledged their contribution to the new milestone in her career as a professional martial artist.
“I went over this match with my coaches, and we came up with a great game plan which worked out perfectly,” Chuang stated. “Thank you to all the fans who supported me, and especially my team who helped me in preparing for this match.”
On July 7, 2018, Chuang and Yodcherry Sityodtong, 19, of Thailand competed for the inaugural ONE Super Series Kickboxing Atomweight World Championship. They headlined “ONE: Battle for the Heavens,” which took place at the Guangzhou Tianhe Gymnasium in Guangzhou, China.
With a great game plan, Chuang avoided Sityodtong’’s powerful right hand and roundhouse kicks. While doing this, the Iron Boxing Gym fighter countered with highly effective boxing combinations for five whole rounds.
The kickboxing championship bout was the 10th bout of the evening. After five five-minute rounds, referee Atsushi Onari raised Chuang’s hand as the winner via unanimous decision.
This also made Chuang the second champion in ONE Super Series and the first female titleholder in the striking-only league of ONE Championship. The first one is reigning ONE Super Series Muay Thai Flyweight World Champion Sam-a Gaiyanghadao, 34, of Thailand, who was crowned on May 18, 2018.
Winning at “ONE: Battle for the Heavens” improved Chuang’s professional record to 17 wins and 5 losses. Here is a clip featuring her at Iron Boxing Gym:
