Meanwhile, in the Flyweight World Grand Prix Quarter-Final during the prelims, Team Lakay’s prodigy Danny ‘The King’ Kingad defeated Japanese hero Senzo Ikeda via unanimous decision. His victory advanced him to the competition’s semi-finals and would go against former world champion Kairat Akhmetov of Kazakhstan.
With the results, Philippines is left with only one world champion in the person of Brandon ‘The Truth’ Vera who watched the game live. He also was among the highlights of the event when he challenged Myanmar’s Aung La N Sang, who just defended his middleweight championship title against Japan’s Ken Hasegawa via knockout.
Sang accepted the challenge while heaping praises for the current heavyweight champion.
The next ONE Championship event will be held in Manila. Pacio, along with brothers Edward and Eric Kelly, will try to redeem the Philippines in the ‘Roots of Honor’ on April 12, 2019.
