Geje Eustaquio remains optimistic for year ahead

Sporting events all over the world have been postponed or canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Even ONE Championship recently announced that they will hold their next events behind closed doors for the immediate future.

But former ONE Flyweight World Champion Geje “Gravity” Eustaquio is staying optimistic while he waits for the chance to entertain his fans anew inside the ONE Circle.

“I am very excited to get back to action. I hope 2020 will be a great year for me and my team.”

After splitting his four matches in 2019, “Gravity” is eager to get back to winning ways and put smiles on the faces of Filipino fans who have been supporting him through the highs and lows of his career.

The 30-year-old has learned from the setbacks of his past, and he plans to use those lessons in his return in The Home Of Martial Arts.

“The ultimate lesson I learned last year is to focus on the goal. Life goes up and down, but you can never defeat a man who never quits,” Eustaquio said.

“I believe that I continue to improve from time to time. I am looking forward to getting more finishes this year.”

Looking at the landscape of the division he once ruled, Eustaquio admitted that it is going to be harder to make a run to the top, especially with the emergence of the latest flyweights.

But Eustaquio is undeterred, confident that his experience and in-ring IQ will be his greatest assets.

“The flyweight division is very deep. Legends, champions, rising stars, and explosive young athletes are right around the corner, but [I’ve been] into this sport for a long time. My confidence has always been there, it’s just a matter of preparation now,” Eustaquio said.

“Experience plays a great role in sports, thus fight IQ also is a big factor. Whatever age, strength, or level they think they are [on], I am ‘The Gravity.’ I believe I will be a World Champion one more time.”
