Team Lakay’s Iniong aims for decisive finish in Bangkok
After seeing her former World Champion teammates Joshua “The Passion” Pacio and Geje “Gravity” Eustaquio drop their belts via close decisions last month, the Filipina vows to win every bout moving forward with ‘conviction.’ She will have the chance to do that when she takes on Jihin “Shadow Cat" Radzuan on the undercard of ONE: CLASH OF LEGENDS, which takes place at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand on Saturday, 16 February "They can expect an aggressive and determined Gina Iniong," she stated. "Anything can happen in a fight. All I can say is I don't want the fight to go to the judges' scorecards." Iniong, a six-time Philippine Wushu Champion, was regarded as one of the fastest rising stars in ONE Championship's talent-rich atomweight division. But in July, she lost some momentum after succumbing to Brazil’s Istela Nunes by way of unanimous decision at ONE: BATTLE FOR THE HEAVENS. Despite the setback, she has always kept her eyes on the prize in the hopes of one day becoming the first female World Champion to emerge from the Philippines. “I am still hoping to get a shot at the ONE Women's Atomweight World Title and fight Angela Lee,” Iniong admitted.
