ONE Atomweight World Champion, Angela Lee terlibat sebuah kecelakaan mobil dan tidak dapat bertanding.
Mobil yang ditumpangi Lee terbalik 5 hingga 6 kali, menurut kepolisian setempat. Ia sedang mengendarai mobilnya menuju gym kemudian tertidur. Ajaibnya, ia selamat hanya dengan cedera ringan, lebam, dan tubuh yang pegal. Untungnya saat itu Lee mengenakan sabuk pengaman.
Lee (8-0) dijadwalkan untuk rematch melawan Mei Yamaguchi(16-10-1) di “ONE Championship 65: Immortal Pursuit” pada Nov. 24 in Singapore.
“ONE Atomweight World Champion Angela Lee got into a terrible car accident yesterday with her car flipping over 5-6x according to the police. She was driving to her morning training at the gym when she fell asleep. Miraculously, she survived with only a concussion, some minor burns, and a banged up body. If she was not wearing a seatbelt, it would have most certainly been a different story. I saw photos of the damaged car, and it was a complete wreck. Angela will not be competing on November 24. We are all blessed and relieved that Angela will make a full recovery. It is a reminder for all of us that life is so fragile and that we must treasure our loved ones every day. Please join me in sending love, prayers, and positive energy to Angela and her family.”
The 21-year-old Lee (8-0) was scheduled to rematch Mei Yamaguchi(16-10-1) at “ONE Championship 65: Immortal Pursuit” on Nov. 24 in Singapore. As a result of her car accident, Lee, who was looking for her third straight title defense, has been pulled from the bout.
