Team Lakay star Danny Kingad makes his return at ONE: Winter Warriors II in an exciting showdown against Kairat Akhmetov.
Kingad is coming into the fight on the back of a win against Wei Xie and will be looking to continue his good run in ONE Championship. The Filipino MMA star has interestingly only lost twice in his last ten fights with the losses coming against reigning champion Adriano Moraes and Flyweight Grand Prix winner Demetrious Johnson.
Speaking to ONE Championship, Kingad noted that it is going to be an exciting fight when he steps into the cage with Akmetov.
“I think that this is going to be an exciting match between me and Kairat. If I beat Kairat this would mean a lot for me. I would have to train harder so I could go with the title shot or anything else. Kairat is a dangerous fighter because he’s a former world champion and he’s dangerous and I think I can give my best with him also,” Kingad said.
When asked about a prediction, Kingad said that it is hard to predict the outcome but noted that he has a clear idea of his strengths going into the fight.
“As an athlete, we find ways so we better ourselves in any aspect of martial arts like wrestling, grappling, and striking and I can do all of that. I think it’s hard to say my prediction but we’ll see on Friday. This is going to be an exciting match,” he added.
