As Iniong enters her third year with ONE Championship, she is focused on making the most of each opportunity presented to her. That starts again at “ONE: Fire and Fury” at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, Metro Manila, Philippines. In the third bout of the evening, Iniong and Roka will compete in the women’s atomweight division.
“Asha Roka is a striker who has very good boxing,” Iniong said of her “ONE: Fire and Fury” opponent. “I think her weakness may be in her ground game.”
“I think I am the more well-rounded fighter,” the Team Lakay fighter continued. “That is the difference between us.”
