Agilan Thani's Incredible Rise From Humble Beginnings

Before he embarked on his remarkable run in ONE Championship, culminating in a shot at Ben Askren’s ONE Welterweight World Championship, Agilan Thani had a difficult childhood.

He lived in one of the roughest neighbourhoods in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, had his mother abandon his family when he was just an infant, and survived constant bullying and abuse due to his obesity.

This is his inspiring story of triumph over adversity.
