Joshua Pacio has been training hard for his return to the cage, looks ready to fight to his best and showed strong character in struggle. The passion of “Passion” is a standout amongst young warriors on the planet.
Pacio showed an incredible performance against the champion Yoshitaka Naito by surviving numerous submission attempts and doing what the Japanese don’t like to do and that’s striking, but in the third round his opponent locked in a deep rear naked choke to force the tap at Thuwunna Indoor Stadium in Yangon, Myanmar last October 7, 2016.
The set back pushed the true warrior forward. We all lose at something or fail in our journey of life, it’s how he handled the loss that defines his character. I respect him more as a person, not just as fighter. He immediately went back in the gym training extremely hard and sweat with his squad soon after the biggest fight of his career. He trains and works non stop with the ONE lightweight champion Eduard Folayang, former featherweight champion Honorio Banario, Geje Eustaquio, Danny Kingad, April Osenio, Kevin Belingon, Edward Kelly and coach Mark Sangiao. A fight team and coaching staff that performs amazingly and develops him for the bigger and better. The young strawweight stalwart will also inspire, motivate and entertain in giving you some insight to the future on MMA. Just come and train with Joshua Pacio at Lakay Training Center, Km.4, La Trinidad, Benguet, everyday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Please text or call 09101153741 to inquire. Joshua is looking in the best condition of his life and ready for his comeback to fight the best guys out there and get another shot at the title as quickly as possible.
There is a saying: “There is no elevator to success. You have to take the stairs”. It still holds true. You must endure the training and development, so that you will be able to sustain the growth.
” You cannot find Defeat in my vocabulary, only the word Lesson. Expect a Different ME next time”
Pacio told his fans and people who keeps on supporting him after his title fight.
When will the time for 20 year-old warrior from Baguio’s Team Lakay comes for him to step back into the cage once again? Let’s wait and watch.
