MANILA, Philippines – Geje Eustaquio doesn't want his third bout against Adriano Moraes to go the distance.

After their last fight ended in a split decision in favor of Eustaquio, the undisputed ONE Flyweight World Champion, is gunning for a more convincing victory.

"If I have the chance to knock him out, then I'll knock him out. I wouldn't let that chance slip away," Eustaquio said.

Establishing a fierce rivalry over the years, the two fighters have crossed paths more than anyone else in the league with Friday's matchup making history as the first trilogy fight in ONE Championship's existence.

The stakes go even higher as both fighters held the title at some point, and victory would cement the winner as the king of the ONE Flyweight divison.

Despite this, Eustaquio said that he is prepared for the hungrier and better version of Adrien Moraes.

"[I'm] 101 percent ready... I'm gonna be putting up some surprises" he said to the media after a press conference.

Drawing motivation from fallen fellow Team Lakay fighter Joshua Pacio, Eustaquio promises fireworks on Friday and it will definitely be the fight of the night.
