The much-awaited promotional debut of Team Lakay’s Jhanlo Mark Sangiao is set to happen at ONE: Winter Warriors II. The Filipino will be going up against Paul Lumihi at the event and will be looking to keep his undefeated record intact at the event.
Speaking to ONE Championship, Jhanlo said that he has been preparing well for the fight.
“I believe I’m going to be as successful in my debut. I’ve been preparing for this for a long time. This is a fight that I was waiting for since I was a kid. This has always been a dream of mine. Now, it’s all about making sure we end up on top and making this dream a reality,” he noted.
Giving his thoughts on Lumihi, Jhanlo noted that he does not want to be overconfident.
“Based on what I’ve seen, he’s more of a striker, but he tends to struggle when the fight hits the mat. He either gets submitted or gets punished on the ground. But it doesn’t matter. Wherever this match goes, I feel like I can take him on. But of course, I don’t want to be overconfident,” Jhanlo added.
When asked about his prediction for the fight, Jhanlo said that he will be looking for an opportunity to finish.
“Anything can happen. But of course, I want to get that bonus, whether it’s that submission or knockout. When that opportunity comes, I’ll be taking it,” he concluded.
