Christian Lee gives an update on Victoria Lee’s return to the circle

Ahead of ONE on Prime Video 4, Christian Lee has the opportunity to add another chapter to the legacy of the Lee family. Whilst he and his sister Angela are current world champions, on November 18, he will get the opportunity to become a double champion when he faces welterweight king Kiamrian Abbasov.

Whilst both Christian and Angela Lee have become two of the biggest stars in ONE Championship, their younger sibling arguably has even more potential.

Victoria Lee is 3-0 inside the circle, with all of her wins coming via finish, showing that she has what it takes to continue the dominance of the Lee family.

After not competing since September 2021, Christian Lee gave an update on Victoria in an interview with ONE Championship:

“Victoria is doing good. Yeah, she’s just taking a little bit of time off. She started fighting at 16 years old, which is extremely young to start off your professional career, so she’s just taking some time off right now. But you know, if and when she decides to step back into the Circle, she’s going to do amazing.”

Whilst Victoria Lee has a high benchmark to hit if she is to reach the same amount of success as her two older siblings, the young prodigy has looked impressive at this early stage of her career.

At ONE on Prime Video 4, Christian Lee will return to action in the biggest fight of his career to date. After successfully avenging his loss to Ok Rae Yoon and winning back his lightweight championship, ‘The Warrior’ will move up to welterweight to face Kiamrian Abbasov for his welterweight world championship.

Sharing a promotional video for the upcoming Champion vs. Champion match-up on his Instagram, Christian Lee got the fans hyped up for November 18.

“#AndNew! Bring it home to Hawaii!!!🔥🔥🔥“

Kiamrian Abbasov has been a force of nature in ONE Championship since debuting in 2018, posing a big threat to Lee. This will be the welterweight champion’s return to his own division after he also attempted to become a two-weight world champion.

Though he was defeated by Reinier de Ridder in his bid to win the middleweight world championship, Abbasov is now ready to once again prove his dominance at welterweight.
