Pinoy MMA warriors Burn Soriano, Eugene Toquero, Jeremy Miado and Jomary Torres look to make a statement in the cage as they head to Yangon, Myanmar for their journey to ONE: Hero’s Dream, Friday, November 3, 2017 at Thuwunna Indoor Stadium.
ONE Championship 63: Hero’s Dream pits Aung La N Sang vs Alain Ngalani battle in an open weight super bout. His middleweight strap will not be defended, the Burmese champion has agreed to take on Muay Thai heavyweight world champion Alain Ngalani. The main card will also feature Pinoy favorite Burn Soriano. In his last fight, Soriano suffered a tough loss against Malaysia’s Saiful Merican. Soriano completely dominated Merican in the early first round only to find himself outworked before the round ends. “Hitman” looks to get back to his winning ways.
Thanks Ms. Apple. February 10 was a day to learn. It has become my biggest motivator as well. No excuses.
Soriano told Powcast nine months ago. His Alliance training camp with coach George Castro all completed now. Soriano is ready to fight.
Eugene Toquero is another Pinoy fan-favorite. “Boy Hawi” will try to stop his three-fight losing streak as he takes on chinese Ma Hao Bin. Toquero fell three-straight to quality opponents such as ONE flyweight champion Adriano Moraes, compatriot and no. 1 flyweight Danny Kingad and Indonesian standout Stefer Rahardian. Toquero has a lot of hair rising work to do to get back in the win column.
I have made other adjustments. I train longer and harder now. I don’t want to be complacent because I am not getting any younger. This is a huge organization with a lot of very good martial artists from all over the world.
This time, l will make sure that my hand is raised as the winner. I am not going home with a loss on 3rd of November, he said.
The debut in April 2016 at ONE: Kings of Destiny didn’t go exactly as planned. Jeremy Miado loses split decision to Robin Catalan. These two are decent on the ground. Only the one with better strategy can defeat another. That was just the beginning! Eager to return to action, “The Jaguar” will be competing against Thailand’s Pongsiri Misatit with an undefeated record of 8-0. If he lose the first battle doesn’t mean he will lose the second time. Miado was a former strawweight champion at Blaze FC. The hunger is still there from Miado and if he can produce a great performance then he will have his first ONE victory.
On the contrary, Jomary Torres shocked the world on her debut about the upset victory over Thailand standout Rika Ishige at ONE: Kings and Conquerors. The Zamboanginian fighter forced Tiny Doll to tap out to end her undefeated run! That’s Jomary Torres’ rise to prominence in the atomweight division. Making a name for herself in her ONE Championship debut we can expect to see more of Jomary. We see Torres building on that success in her return to the cage against Nita Dea.
