Pacatiw Promises Better Version Of Himself After Disappointing Loss At BRAVE CF 29

Filipino bantamweight Jeremy “The Juggernaut” Pacatiw may have lost his previous battle but he remains motivated to keep pushing to be a better athlete.

Yesterday, November 15, Pacatiw failed to make it four wins in a row after dropping a unanimous decision loss against Ali “The Royal Fighter” Al Qaisi of Jordan on the preliminary card of BRAVE CF 29 at the Khalifa Sports City Arena in Isa Town, Bahrain.

The bout was a back and forth battle for both men all throughout the match with Pacatiw dominating the stand-up game while Al Qaisi had his moments on the ground.

After 15 minutes of non-stop action, the three judges found Al Qaisi ahead on their scorecards giving the Jordanian star his 5th straight win.

“I thought I won the match, but I also admit that I was very hesitant with my offense last night. I could have done better to secure the win,” said Pacatiw.

“The game plan was perfect. I was confident in my striking and connected solid shots especially with my legs kick. I was also able to defend him on the ground, but my hesitation to throw more cost me the match,” he added.

“The loss might be a bitter pill for me to take, but I am sure that I will learn many things from it.”

Though the result did not go his way, Pacatiw is currently in high spirits. The match exposed things that the 23-year-old Kapangan, Benguet native needs to work on, and that is exactly what he will be focusing on moving forward.

“I never give up no matter what. I just need to keep training hard and improve some areas of my game. This time I’ll give more time on sharpening my mental strength to eliminate those hesitations that were stopping me to unleash my full potential inside the cage” Pacatiw shared.

“I trained almost every day to improve. I’ll take this loss as a big lesson. I’m confident that I’ll come back stronger after this.”

While the loss was certainly a tough one, Pacatiw promises to be a different athlete the next time he steps foot inside the Brave Combat Federation stage.

“I’m really good with Brave. I’m really happy how they take care of me before and after my fights. I thank them so much. To be honest, I’m a bit disappointed but I believe I will come back no matter what and get that win next time.”

“I’ll take my game to the next level, and I guarantee that you will be seeing a different Jeremy Pacatiw in my next outing.”
