Zamboanga siblings Drex and Denice look to impress at ONE: A NEW BREED

The Zamboanga siblings join ONE Championship’s long list of successful broods when The Home Of Martial Arts returns this Friday, 28 August, at ONE: A NEW BREED in Bangkok, Thailand.  Top-ranked Filipina atomweight Denice “The Menace” Zamboanga looks to keep a stronghold on her number one contender status when she faces Watsapinya “Dream Girl” Kaewkhong in a mixed martial arts bout.  Making this special for “The Menace” is the fact that she will be competing with her older brother in Filipino World Champion Drex “T-Rex” Zamboanga, who is slated to make his ONE debut against Detchadin Sornsirisuphathin. “I’m very happy to be competing once more, because it’s been awhile since I last fought, so I’m grateful to be a part of this card in Thailand,” she said.  “Aside from actively competing once more, what makes me really happy is I’ll be fighting alongside my brother on the same card.” The younger of the Zamboanga siblings has already made her presence felt in The Home Of Martial Arts.  The undefeated Filipina scored convincing wins over Jihin “Shadow Cat” Radzuan and former ONE Atomweight Women’s World Title challenger Mei “V.V” Yamaguchi, earning her the right to face longtime division ruler “Unstoppable” Angela Lee as announced by ONE Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong.  A dominant performance here for the Filipina would only make her case stronger.  Also competing on the card is Filipina-American KC “Pinay Fight” Carlos, who will look to pull the upset-rug from underneath the rolling Wondergirl Fairtex in a strawweight Muay Thai battle.  In the card’s headliner, Stamp Fairtex defends her ONE Atomweight Muay Thai World Title against Allycia Hellen Rodrigues while “Left Meteorite” Kulabdam Sor. Jor. Piek Uthai battles Rodlek PK.Saenchai Muaythaigym in the ONE Muay Thai Bantamweight Tournament Finals, where a shot at reigning World Champion Nong-O Gaiyanghadao is at stake.  ONE: A NEW BREED will air Friday, 28 August, in a closed-door, audience-free setting in Bangkok, Thailand. .....»»
