Kingad punches ticket into ONE flyweight World Grand Prix
Kingad looked deadly against his Japanese counterpart, as he unleashed a varied striking attack and defended from Wada's grappling to punch himself a ticket into the ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix. For the local hero, the result was a byproduct of the sound game plan of coach Mark Sangiao and his discipline in committing to it. “Our game plan was to score as much as I could in the striking department, while at the same time, avoid his takedowns,” said Kingad. “We all know that he is very versatile that's why I was very cautious when executing my offense. Luckily, everything went perfectly and we are able to secure the victory.” Kingad admitted to feeling Wada's power early on, but he was happy to see his opponent falling to his tendencies as the match goes on.
