    For the no. 2-ranked women's atomweight, a favorable result in this duel could mean a possible title shot against the ONE Women's Atomweight World Champion -- and a loss could see her falling by the wayside.

    "Sobrang importante nito. Pag nawala sa akin ito, sobrang hirap na maging title contender pag di ko mapanalo yung rematch," she said on Wednesday. "Sobrang focused ako dito sa rematch so I have the chance to fight for the title belt."

    Zamboanga is coming in motivated as she looks to avenge her controversial loss at ONE: Empower last September, where the Filipina lost via split decision in the quarterfinals of the ONE Women's Atomweight World Grand Prix.

    But she clarified that this is purely business as she holds no bad blood against her Korean foe, saying, "Hindi ako galit kasi it's about business and respect. Di niya kasalanan na ganun yung naging results. Kahit sino naman ang makasagutan ko, walang galit kasi we're in the business of fighting."
