PROTECTING the home floor is the main goal of three Team Lakay bets when they step inside the cage on Friday at ONE: Hero's Ascent at Mall of Asia Arena.
ONE Flyweight Champion Geje Eustaquio seeks to silence all doubters as he closes the chapter on his epic trilogy against longtime division king Adriano Moraes in the main event of the Manila card.
"I know the pressure, but at the same time, this is a motivation for me to keep on going," said Eustaquio. "I have to do my best to retain the title."
Honorio Banario will also see action in the Manila card when he takes on Hawaiian stud Lowen Tynanes in the ONE Lightweight Grand Prix quarterfinals.
Also fighting is Danny Kingad, who will face off against Japanese foe Tatsumitsu Wada in an eliminator for the upcoming ONE Flyweight Grand Prix.
The Team Lakay fighters will aim to avenge the losses incurred by stablemates Edward Kelly and deposed ONE Strawweight Champion Joshua Pacio in Jakarta just last Saturday.
