The Welterweight division in World Lethwei Championship is probably the best in the promotion, with enough stars to make a 16-man grand prix. It features local stars like Yan Naing Tun, Tha Pyay Nyo, Saw Ba Oo and Soe Lin Oo, as well as international superstars like Cambodia’s Roeung Sophorn, Italy’s Samuel Toscano and Uzbekistan’s Shokrukh Kholmurodov.
It appears a grudge match is being set up over in England by two of World Lethwei Championship’s top Light Middleweights. Overtime Heroics Lethwei posted a video about Artur Saladiak’s Light Middleweight World Lethwei Championship winning sequence where he knocked out challenger Saw Ba Oo to become the first World Lethwei Champion at that weight class.
