Gina Iniong grounds Indian boxer for second straight win in ONE


Facing a dangerous striker, Gina Iniong relied on her grappling to pick up a unanimous decision win over Indian boxer Asha Roka, Friday evening during ONE: Fire and Fury at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.

Iniong — who had just won the 2019 Southeast Asian Games gold in kickboxing — had a tall task against Roka, who holds a pristine 7-0 record in boxing.

Knowing this, the 30-year-old Team Lakay standout out-grappled Roka for the majority of the 15-minute bout to raise her record to 9-4.

“I’m very happy that I won this fight even though I didn’t finish it with a submission. I’m still very happy with the result,” she said.

Roka, who is coming off a loss to two-sport world champion Stamp Fairtex, fell to 4-2.

Earlier, bantamweights Rodlek PK.Saenchaimuaythaigym and Chris Shaw figured in a bloody Muay Thai bout.

The bloodied Thai (128-40), who has an uncanny resemblance to Filipino boxing legend Manny Pacquiao that won him the cheers of the crowd, earned the nod of the judges over the American (39-9).
