Filipino Jomary Torres came out of nowhere and beat Thai star Rika Ishige in ONE: Kings & Conquerors in Macau two months ago.

Torres steps into the cage again against Indonesian kickboxer Nita Dea on Nov. 3 to prove her stunning victory against Ishige was no fluke.

“This is my chance to establish my first winning streak in ONE Championship. It’s not impossible. That’s why I am exerting a tremendous amount of effort in training. I want to keep on winning,” said Torres, who beat Ishige by submission in the second round.

The 21-year-old Torres thinks her opponent’s strength is her striking but the Zamboanga del Norte native said she’s prepared for anything.

“From what I saw, I think she (Nita Dea) is a striker. She does not seem to hit the ground all that much. I am prepared to go toe-to-toe or take the match to the ground, wherever I think I have the advantage,” she said.

Dea is impressive on paper. She is a national wrestling champion and a two-time national Wushu Sanda champion with a decent 12-4 record in kickboxing.

“I felt really nervous in my first bout. But when I saw my opponent was right in front of me and remembered all the people who supported me, I relaxed and slowly put my focus on winning the match,” Torres said.

“I want to win again because I want to give back to my gym and the people who love and support me. I am competing for my country. Everything I do is for all of them and as long as I can do this, I will keep doing this.” – Inquirer.net
