The ONE: Winter Warriors II main event will see Danny Kingad fighting Kairat Akhmetov in a crucial Flyweight clash. The stakes are high for the showdown and former ONE Flyweight champion Geje Eustaquio has given his thoughts on the same.

Eustaquio is someone that has already fought Akhmetov twice and spends a lot of time in the gym with his teammate Danny Kingad as well which makes him the best person to give a prediction for the fight.

Speaking to ONE Championship, Eustaquio said that Danny has an advantage thanks to his athleticism.

“I believe Danny’s main advantage here is his athleticism. I think that’s where Danny will really move ahead. Aside from being younger and fresher, his strength and power are his advantages over Akhmetov. Danny has certainly been improving, and his biggest improvement came in terms of [his] physique and skills. I believe he’s added a lot of things to his arsenal and because of that, he’s more confident to execute game plans now,” Eustaquio said.

The Team Lakay star, however, gives full credit to Akhmetov and added that Danny should not let Akhmetov gain confidence.

“One thing that Akhmetov has is his confidence. Having faced him twice already, he has a different kind of confidence when he steps into the Circle, and I think that’s one advantage of his. When he’s really composed, he can really execute and get things his way. That’s what I noticed particularly in our first fight. Danny shouldn’t allow Akhmetov to gain confidence in this match. He should avoid letting that guy dictate and control the pace of the action,” the former champion noted.

When it came to his final verdict, Eustaquio went with his teammate and sees a unanimous decision victory as well.

“I believe this is going to be a war. They will stand toe-to-toe in striking and on the ground. I’m taking Danny by unanimous decision,” he concluded.
