Joshua Pacio and Stephen Loman are getting some valuable experience over at the Fairtex Training Center in Thailand
A pair of Team Lakay world champions in ONE Strawweight World Champion Joshua Pacio and Brave CF Bantamweight World Champion Stephen "The Sniper" Loman have travelled to Thailand to get even better and more dangerous inside the cage.
Pacio and Loman, two of the famed Filipino martial arts stable’s brightest young stars are sharpening their tools away from home, training at the world-famous Fairtex Training Center in Pattaya, Thailand.
Fairtex, of course, is home to some of the best Muay Thai practitioners in the world, as well as world champions including reigning ONE Women’s Atomweight Muay Thai and Kickboxing World Champion Stamp Fairtex.
The training camp, as revealed by Fairtex’s official Instagram account, is part of a sponsorship deal between Team Lakay and the Thai-based training center-slash-combat equipment manufacturer.
Fairtex is now sponsoring team, Team Lakay. The team includes Joshua Pacio, One Championship Straw weight World Champion. He and the the team visited Fairtex Training Center. Looking forward to work more with team Lakay. ???????????? @joshuapacio @teamlakay #fairtex #fairtextrainingcenter #teamlakay #mma #muaythai #onechampionship #sponsorship #fightlife
The 23-year old Pacio, ONE’s current reigning strawweight king, is a two-time titleholder in the division and is looking to make a return to the ring to defend his title soon. The last time Pacio was in action, he knocked out Japan’s Yosuke Saruta to reclaim the title.
Same goes for the 27-year old Loman, the first and only bantamweight titleholder of the Middle East-based Brave CF promotion. Loman’s last time in action saw him successfully defend his title against Elias Boudegzdame of Algeria.
