    Jenelyn Olsim vs Julie Mezabarba

    The Team Lakay stalwart will face Julie Mezabarba of Brazil in a women's atomweight clash at the Singapore Indoor Stadium this June 3.

    Olsim last fought at ONE: NextGen where she came in as a replacement but fell to Ritu Phogat in the ONE Atomweight World Grand Prix semifinals back in October 2021.

    Licking her wounds after that defeat, the 25-year-old is motivated to go back to her winning ways.

    "Every day is a blessing for it allows us to refocus on what is important and what motivates us to keep going. Take full advantage of this blessing," she said, winning her last two fights against Maira Mazar and Bi Nguyen before the Phogat defeat.
