Ekaterina Vandaryeva makes her ONE Championship return at ONE: Heavy Hitters on January 14, 2022. She will be going up against Supergirl Jaroonsak at the event in a Muay-Thai contest and speaking ahead of the fight, Ekaterina took time out to break down the game of Supergirl.
“She is somewhat unusual because Thai athletes don’t like using their boxing very much. They do it rarely, mostly to distract and land a middle kick, get into the clinch, and so on. But she keeps rushing with her punches endlessly. She is good with her knees, but every action has a counter, and I know what to do to block. She won’t surprise me,” she said during her interview with ONE Championship.
Ekaterina further went on to add that putting on a show for the audience is important.
“I love to hit very accurately and very harshly, and when I hit the target, I don’t stop – I finish it off. I love various technical aspects like back fists, spinning strikes, and so on. I think it’s very interesting – much more interesting than going and doing the same thing. We work for the audience, so it should be very entertaining to see,” she added.
When concluding, the Minsk resident went on to add that she will be looking to get a knockout over Supergirl although getting a win is her priority.
“Of course, I would like to finish with a knockout, but victory is most important. I know for sure I’m worthy of this victory more than anybody. I know how I long for it, how my loved ones and fans long for it, and I really want to make them – and myself – happy,” she added.
