Former ONE Flyweight World Champion Geje “Gravity” Eustaquio is looking for redemption after losing his title against Brazil’s Adriano “Mikinho” Moraes at ONE: HERO’S ASCENT in Manila last January.
His comeback trail to regain his throne will start at ONE: ENTER THE DRAGON in Singapore on 17 May as he is set to welcome Kim Kyu Sung of South Korea in the Home of Martial Arts.
“I can’t wait to bounce back and start over again, rest assured, you’ll see the best version of me in Singapore,” Eustaquio said.
Despite his previous setback, Eustaquio believes that the combination of the things he learned from his failures and his hunger to success will be the key factors in reclaiming his gold-plated strap.
“I wish to get back in the winning column and pave a new path to World Title contention,” said Eustaquio.
“I’m into a new era now which simply means it’s all or nothing.”
But despite his eagerness to win, Eustaquio refuses to look past his next opponent who is looking to impress the mixed martial arts world in his ONE Championship debut.
Sung is one of South Korea’s up-and-coming talents who holds an impressive record of nine wins and only two losses with seven out of his nine wins didn’t reach the final bell.
In his last match, the 26-year-old native of Jeonju, South Korea knocked out Masayuki “Nave” Watanabe of Japan in the second round of their scheduled three-round flyweight match.
And though “Gravity” doesn’t have that much intel from his Korean counterpart, he learned his lesson and guarantees that he won’t leave his fate to the judges’ hands this time.
“We don’t know much about our upcoming opponent as he’ll be making his debut but we know that he’s tall and lanky. So we’ll have to prepare for that,” said Eustaquio
“The most important thing is to not leave it to the judges’ hands this time so expect me to go all out.”
