    Pacatiw vs Rui preview

    The 24-year-old fighter battles "The Ghost" Chen Rui in a bantamweight showdown in the undercards of ONE: Battleground in Singapore, aiming to make a name for himself like the rest of his Team Lakay seniors.

    “For a long time, I’ve always wanted to be here. It’s a dream come true,” said Pacatiw, who's made a name for himself in other promotions and is raring to display his pedigree in the ONE stage.

      "They call me Juggernaut, so they’re gonna see why they call me that in our match. I’m gonna give a good show, I’m gonna do everything in my power to get this win."
