Indian MMA star Roshan Mainam is all set to make his return to the ONE Circle on March 19, 2021, when he fights Aziz Calim at ONE: Fists of Fury III. Coming off two successful outings in ONE Championship, the Manipuri fighter is looking for yet another victory this Friday.

Talking to ONE Championship, he revealed that he would be looking for a quick finish and added that he wants to showcase his striking in the fight.

“I will try to finish the match as soon as possible. I would like to finish it in the first round. Going forward, I am looking to use my striking more in my matches. I am really excited about this match because I got this fight at the beginning of the year. I have been working hard since my last match, and I am ready for this challenge. I am geared up for a good performance,” he said.

Calim is expected to be the toughest challenge to date in ONE Championship for Roshan and the Indian is well aware of the same.

“I never take any fight lightly. Calim debuted in ONE Championship before me. He has represented his country in many fights before this. He is a tough opponent with lots of experience. I will try my best to give a great performance,” Roshan added.

When closing, Roshan added that he aims to make his country proud this year and take things to the next level.

“I would like to make my country proud this year. I am training with world-class fighters here [at Evolve], and the level of training here is quite different and a notch above the rest. I have trained hard and tried to take myself to the next level. I have improved in my last two matches and I would like to continue doing the same this year, too,” he concluded.

ONE: Fists of Fury III will air live on Friday, 19 March 2021 and will be live in India on Hotstar and Star Sports Select 2 at 6:00 PM IST.
