Denice “The Menace” Zamboanga has already proven that she belongs on the loaded ONE Championship roster.
Now she has to show that she can keep up with the pressure that comes with the hype.
The top-ranked Filipina atomweight defends her number one contender status when she takes on Watsapinya “Dream Girl” Kaewkhong at ONE: A New Breed in Bangkok, Thailand, this Friday, August 28.
“I’m very happy to be competing once more, because it’s been a while since I last fought, so I’m grateful to be a part of this card in Thailand,” Zamboanga said.
Zamboanga has taken The Home Of Martial Arts by storm, beating Jihin “Shadow Cat” Radzuan and former ONE Atomweight Women’s World Title challenger Mei “V.V” Yamaguchi, to earn the right to face longtime division queen “Unstoppable” Angela Lee in the future.
If she wins on Friday, fans’ expectations of her will only increase. Luckily for her, she will not be alone on that night.
Competing at the same venue is her older brother, Drex “T-Rex” Zamboanga, who takes on Detchadin Sornsirisuphathin in his ONE debut.
“Aside from actively competing once more, what makes me really happy is I’ll be fighting alongside my brother on the same card,” Zamboanga said.
Also flying the Philippine flag that night is KC “Pinay Fight” Carlos, who battles Wondergirl Fairtex in a strawweight Muay Thai clash.
In the main event, Stamp Fairtex defends her ONE Atomweight Muay Thai World Title against Allycia Hellen Rodrigues in a highly intriguing bout.
Meanwhile, the next challenger to Nong-O Gaiyanghadao’s crown will be determined as “Left Meteorite” Kulabdam Sor. Jor. Piek Uthai takes on Rodlek PK.Saenchai Muaythaigym in the finals of the ONE Muay Thai Bantamweight Tournament.
ONE: A New Breed will air this Friday, August 28, in a closed-door, audience-free setting in Bangkok, Thailand.
Catch it live at 8:30 P.M. at One Sports and One Sports+ or by watching on the ONE Super App.
