Team Lakay star Jeremy Pactiw is all set to make his ONE Championship return at ONE: Full Circle when he fights Fabricio Andrade. Pacatiw made his promotional debut last year and will be looking to build on the same when he fights Andrade.
Pacatiw’s coach and Team Lakay chief Mark Sangiao believes that Pacatiw can break into the top five of the Bantamweight Rankings with a win over Andrade. Pacatiw is currently 10-4 in his professional MMA career and will be looking to improve on the same and break into the Bantamweight rankings when he fights Andrade.
“We consider every single match that we have as a chance for us to show how Team Lakay is relentlessly progressing. A victory for Jeremy in this match will be monumental. Who is occupying the 4th spot in the ranking? It’s Fabricio Andrade. So if the tide will go with us, then Jeremy will surely earn himself a place in the top-ranking athletes,” Sangiao said.
He further went on to add that Andrade is one of the best fighters out there.
“Fabricio Andrade is one of the best. He's not the toughest opponent that Jeremy will face. If you try to check Jeremy’s fight record before he joined ONE, you can see a list of ace fighters that Jeremy encountered in his career up to this date,” he added.
Interestingly, Team Lakay’s Stephen Loman is already in the Bantamweight top five and the addition of Pacatiw into the mix will be a huge boost for the team.
