Joshua Pacio, new ONE strawweight champ Yosuke Saruta open to rematch

JAKARTA, Indonesia--Last Saturday night won't be the last time Joshua Pacio and Yosuke Saruta would be slugging it out inside the ONE Championship cage. With their world title fight too close to call, it's almost inevitable that the two would be pitted against each other soon in a rematch. "If ONE tells me to do the rematch then, bring it on," said the newly-minted strawweight champion Saruta through an interpreter. "I never say no to a match. I'll fight anyone at any time." Saruta, who was just a replacement fighter for his injured compatriot Hayato Suzuki, took the belt after earning a split-decision win. The 23-year-old Pacio, who yielded the crown in just his first title defen...Keep on reading: Joshua Pacio, new ONE strawweight champ Yosuke Saruta open to rematch.....»»

ONE Championship: Joshua Pacio sacrifices the holidays to train for first world title defense in January

Joshua "The Passion" Pacio took no time-off during the holidays as he continues to grind at the gym in preparation for the first defense of his ONE Strawweight World Championship against Yosuke Saruta.   The 22-year-old phenom from Baguio City is slated to battle the veteran Japanese mixed martial artist in the main event of ONE: ETERNAL GLORY, which takes place at the Istora Senayan in Jakarta, Indonesia on 19 January.   Pacio's commitment to his craft is unparalleled as he had to give up spending the Christmas season with his family to fully focus on his training.   "It’s the sacrifice that I have to do because it’s my first title defense," he said. "On Christmas Eve, I spent it with my family, but the day after, I was back in training."   Pacio was originally scheduled to lock horns with Hayato Suzuki at ONE: ETERNAL GLORY, but the latter was forced to withdraw from the bout due to an injury.   Saruta was eventually tapped to replace Suzuki in the main event with the task to duke it out with Pacio for the prestigious world title.   A sudden replacement of opponent could disrupt the course of an athlete's training, but Pacio merely shrugged it off, citing that a mixed martial artist should have the ability to adjust.   "As a martial artist, you need to adapt. It has already happened to me in the past, and I was able to adapt through it," he explained. "The game plan will be changed, but that’s okay. It’s better now because there are still weeks to prepare."   With 20 days to go before he clashes with Saruta inside the ONE Championship cage, Pacio cited that he is exactly where he needs to be in training.   "The training is going fine. Now it’s all about peaking at the right time in training," he shared. “Regardless of my opponent, I will do my best to defend my title successfully.”.....»»

2018 Suzuki Cup: Azkals look to recreate Miracle in Hanoi as as they fight for survival vs. Vietnam

The Philippine Men's National Football team will need another Miracle in Hanoi when they take on Vietnam in the second leg of the 2018 AFF Suzuki Cup Semifinals, Thursday evening at the My Dinh National Stadium. The Azkals will be heading into Thursday's match down 2-1 on aggregate, and will need the performance of a lifetime if they wish to finally slip into the tournament's finale.  Vietnam got off to an early start in the first leg of the semifinals, with Nguyen Anh Duc hitting early.  Patrick Reichelt managed to even things up before halftime, but Vietnam went ahead once more, early in the second half thanks to Phan Van Duc, and never looked back.  With their Suzuki Cup lives at stake, the Philippines will hope to recreate some magic from years past. December 5, 2010, eight years and a day prior to Thursday's crucial matchup, a relatively unheralded Azkals side, led by a young Phil Younghusband and veteran Chris Greatwich, authored what would come to be known as "The Miracle in Hanoi".  Younghusband and Greatwich both scored to help lead the Azkals - who failed to qualify for the tournament's previous staging - to a 2-0 victory over then-defending champions Vietnam in the 2010 Suzuki Cup group stage. The win would help propel the Philippines to that year's semifinals. While it would be the Azkals' only win during that tournament, it was a landmark moment in Philippine football history, as it effectively jumpstarted the sport's popularity in the country.  Eight years and a day later, team captain Younghusband and Assistant Coach Greatwich, as well as the rest of the Philippine Azkals look to score another landmark win for Philippine football.  Kick-off time is at 8:30 PM, Manila time. .....»»
