Ramon “The Bicolano” Gonzales looks to leave a bigger dent in the stacked strawweight division in his next appearance inside the ONE Championship ring.
Currently on a three-bout winning streak all by way of first-round submission, “The Bicolano” is ready to climb the ladder anew in the hopes of getting a crack at the ONE Strawweight World Title, which is currently held by his compatriot Joshua “The Passion” Pacio.
“I’m certainly ready for Friday. I’m ready to display more innovation and improvement from what I can do. Of course, there’s still my striking,” Gonzales said.
“I’ve been focusing on everything, from my striking, which is Kyokushin, to my ground game. I know that a win could push me further up the rankings. But on top of that, my main goal for every match is to win and learn.”
In the hopes to finally make a splash in his weight class, Gonzales says he has stepped up his training camp in preparation for Hexigetu.
“This is one of the best training camps I’ve had. Everyone in the gym helped me out with the challenge I’m facing in Bangkok,” he said.
“I am eager and much more determined for this coming Friday. This is for everyone who believes in me.”
His game plan is simple - get in the ring and showcase his renowned striking and improved well-roundedness as a mixed martial artist.
“Our game plan is to give my all thru striking and the ground. Wherever this match goes, I am ready, and I will give my best,” Gonzales shared.
“I know how dangerous of an opponent Hexigetu is, and I have no plans of getting complacent.”
Eager to prove himself on the global stage, the Filipino athlete said that he remains as hungry as ever, even after winning three straight matches.
“I remain focused in training even on match week. I am excited and challenged for my next fight because this is another opportunity for me.”
Tune in to watch ONE Championship’s next event, ONE: DREAMS OF GOLD, this Friday, 16 August.
