ONE Women’s Strawweight World Champion Xiong Jing Nan is set to lock horns with Ayaka Miura at ONE: Heavy Hitters. Currently holding a professional record of 16-2 to her name, Xiong is currently on a two-fight winning streak having defeated Tiffany Teo and Michelle Nicolini in her last two fights.
She will be looking to continue this good run against Ayaka Miura and noted that she is looking for a finish.
“Miura thinks my fights are boring? So, how about trying something new in this fight so that she won’t get bored?. She also thinks that I’m not able to knock down any opponent? She thinks I’m losing the ability to KO? We will see in the ring. I will show her what a KO is and how it feels to be knocked down by Xiong Jing Nan,” the Beijing native noted.
Xiong further went on to add that she is eager to get back inside the circle with ONE Atomweight Champion Angela Lee. Xiong and Lee have already fought twice in ONE Championship. In the first fight, Xiong secured a last-round TKO Finish when Angela Lee staged a strong comeback in the second fight by submitting Xiong in the fifth round.
“I like to always fully focus on the current stuff before I can move forward. But now that I’m asked, after this fight, part of my plan is to participate in atomweight fights. Of course, I’ve been looking forward to the third fight against Angela Lee. That fight is what I have been looking forward to all the time,” Xiong added.
