Gonzales promises to bounce back in Bangkok

Ramon “The Bicolano” Gonzales is one of the last Filipino athletes to lose on the ONE Championship stage this year. 

But he will also be the first one to get a chance to bounce back. 

The Filipino karateka takes on Elipitua “The Magician” Siregar of Indonesia in ONE: A NEW TOMORROW on 10 January at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand.

“I really want to bounce back quickly for all my supporters and everyone who never stopped believing in me,” Gonzales said. 

It was a forgettable night for the Albay City native in Beijing on 16 November as he was dominated from start to finish by “Wolf Of The Grasslands” Hexigetu at ONE: AGE OF DRAGONS

From adjusting to his new weight class to dealing with below-zero weather in China, Gonzales certainly had to deal with a lot before his three-match win streak was snapped by his Chinese foe. 

Now he wants nothing more than to get back to winning ways. 

“I promise to always be at my best moving forward, to show that I am always improving in all facets of the game,” he said ahead of his showdown at ONE: A NEW TOMORROW.

In the main event of the show, defending ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Champion Rodtang “The Iron Man” Jitmuangnon battles Jonathan “The General” Haggerty in a rematch of their clash last August at  ONE: DAWN OF HEROES

Thailand’s two-sport World Champion Stamp Fairtex will also be in action when she battles India’s Puja Tomar in an atomweight mixed martial arts bout in the co-main event. 

The Home Of Martial Arts returns to action on 10 January for ONE: A NEW TOMORROW at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand. 

Catch all the action live and for free on the ONE Super App.
