Team Lakay's April Osenio meets Catalan Fighting System Philippines' Jomary Torres in an exciting all-Filipino women's strawweight contest at ONE: Global Superheroes in Manila.
An exciting women's strawweight contest has been added to ONE Championship's first card in Manila for 2018.
Kicking off the stacked fight card at the Mall of Asia Arena on Friday, January 26th will be an all-Filipino matchup between Team Lakay's April Osenio and Catalan Fighting System Philippines' Jomary Torres.
It's going to be a quick turnaround for the Baguio-based Osenio, who last saw action at ONE Championship's year-ending card in Bangkok, Thailand. It was a rude welcome after a year off for Osenio, as she fell to would-be ONE women's strawweight title challenger Xiong Jing Nan of China.
The 23-year old Osenio possesses a 2-3 professional record, with all of her fights coming under the ONE Championship banner.
Zamboanga's Jomary Torres took ONE Championship by storm back in 2017, after shocking the world and choking out Thai star Rika Ishige in Macau, in what many consider to be an upset. The 21-year old Torres kept her momentum going as she picked up a dominant win over Indonesia's Nita Dea in Yangon to remain unbeaten in he professional and ONE Championship career.
The same Manila card will be headlined by a highly-anticipated rematch between flyweight contenders Geje 'Gravity' Eustaquio of Team Lakay in Baguio and former ONE world champion Kairat Akhmetov of Kazakhstan for the ONE interim flyweight world title.
Filipino warriors Joshua Pacio and Edward Kelly of Team Lakay and Eric Kelly are all set to see action in Manila as well.
Catch ONE Championship: Global Superheroes on Friday, January 26th at the Mall of Asia Arena. Broadcast is live at 8:30 PM on S+A channel 23!
