ONE Championship: New dad Danny Kingad balancing life as a fighter, a father, and a student

They say that when you become a father, everything changes. Such is the case for Team Lakay flyweight start Danny Kingad. Kingad and his girlfriend Jannine welcomed a bouncing baby boy into the world last August 14th, and safe to say, it’s given the 22-year old a new source of motivation. “Parang nadoble ‘yung sipag,” Kingad shared. “Everytime na nagte-train ako, nakikita ko siya, naeexcite ako.” The timing couldn’t be more perfect, as Kingad makes his return to action at ONE Championship: Conquest of Heroes on Saturday, September 22nd in Jakarta, Indonesia against Japanese newcomer Yuya Wakamatsu. The proud new father said that even though Jannine went into labor during his fight camp, never was it a distraction from preparing for the fight, rather it served as motivation. “Hindi distraction, kundi mas namomotivate ako.” Kingad expressed. “Mas excited na ako, excited na akong lumabas ‘yung baby. Dagdag sipag sakin eh.” Kingad explains that with the birth of his son Gleuordan Adrian, he’s gotten a new outlook on life and a renewed sense of responsibility. “Oo, nagbago na lahat. Wala na yung lakwatsa. dapat andun ka palagi para sa kanya, inaalagaan mo siya, tapos ayun, pagkatapos alagaan, training.” Now, Kingad faces the challenge of juggling the life of being a father, a fighter, and for the moment, a college student. Currently a third-year Education student at the University of the Cordilleras, Kingad says he’s managing to balance all three roles in his life. “Binabalance ko,” he proudly shared. "Meron naman si mother niya na nagbabantay sa kanya pag may training ako. Pag may time ako punta ako sa kanya tapos inaalagaan ko siya.”   Catch ONE Championship: Conquest of Heroes on Saturday, September 22nd at 10:30 PM LIVE on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23!   .....»»

ONE Championship: Rene Catalan still won t fight a fellow Filipino, not even for a championship

Veteran martial artist and ONE Championship strawweight contender Rene Catalan is standing his ground with regards to his statement about not wanting to fight a fellow Filipino.  In an interview with ONE Championship back in August, the former Asian Games Gold Medalist in Wushu stated that he'd rather not fight a fellow Filipino, regardless of the stakes.  Back then, Catalan and fellow pinoy strawweight contender Joshua Pacio were thought to be on a collision course, with both having put together respective winning streaks.  "I’d rather not face a fellow Filipino.” said Catalan. “Since 2003, I’ve been representing for the Philippines, and until now, I try to avoid having to compete against one of my countrymen.”  Both Catalan and Pacio were coming off impressive wins in Manila, but it was Pacio who was rewared the opportunity for the championship. The Team Lakay strawweight standout will challenge reigning ONE Championship Strawweight World Champion Yoshitaka Naito at ONE: Conquest of Heroes in Jakarta, Indonesia.  When asked about the possiblity of having to face Pacio with a world title on the line, Catalan's answer didn't change.  "Ibibigay ko na siguro kay Joshua 'yun," the 39-year old said. "Kung manalo siya, maraming foreigner na mag-hahabol sa kanya at sa belt. Andiyan si Hayato Suzuki, si Alex Silva, marami."  Catalan is also in Jakarta, cornering prized pupil Jomary Torres as she takes on Indonesia's own Priscilla Hertati Lumban Gaol.  "Naniniwala ako na may time din ako." he added.  Catalan even hinted at playing gatekeeper for Pacio, should the Baguio-based fighter pull off a victory on Saturday night.  "Pwedeng ako yung kalabanin nung mga ibang challenger, pero hindi talaga natin kakalabanin yung kababayan natin."  "Yung kapwa natin Pilipino, tutulungan dapat natin." he added.  Catalan was slated to meet Japanese submission specialist Hayato Suzuki at ONE's return to Bangkok in October, but had to pull out due to an ankle injury.  Taking Catalan's place against Suzuki will be his younger brother Robin.  Before anything else of course, Pacio will have to take care of business against Naito.  Saturday's main event will be a rematch of their 2016 title bout which saw Naito defeat Pacio in the third round via submission.    Catch ONE Championship: Conquest of Heroes on Saturday, September 22nd at 10:30 PM LIVE on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23! .....»»
