MANILA, Philippines—Drex Zamboanga continues to revive while Jeremy Pacatiw bounces back on Saturday.
Zamboanga clinched his fourth straight win following a hard-earned decision-making win over Team Lakay’s Adonis Sevilleno at ONE 164 at the Mall of Asia Arena.
Pacatiw, also on Team Lakay, recovered from knockout loss to Fabricio Andrade last February by stopping Myanmar’s Tial Thang in an action-packed bantamweight match.
“I am very motivated because I am surrounded by a lot of good people,” says Pacatiw (May 11).
“Great respect for Tial Thang. He’s tough and very talented. We will meet again one day,” he added.
Victory makes Zamboanga siblings celebrate doubly after Drex follows in sister’s footsteps Denice’s victory in morning trading.
Older Zamboanga, whose current record after three consecutive losses, improved to 10-5 later ruined Sevilleno’s debut.
Denice, the former No. 1 atom weight fighter, defeated Lin Heqin of China by split decision.
