MANILA, Philippines — Filipino bet James “OJ” delos Santos is fast closing in on becoming the World No. 1 in online karate, and he hopes to hit that cherished goal in his next competitions.

His ranking points boosted by his recent triumphs, the 30-year-old Delos Santos has climbed closer to World No. 1 Eduardo Garcia of Portugal, with the two bets now separated by less than 500 points from more than 4,000 a month ago.

In the recent online rankings, the two-time Southeast Asian Games bronze medalist has closed the gap to just, 8,575-8,110, and the World No. 2 could zoom to the top and dislodge Garcia with a couple more tournament victories.

Delos Santos is lined up to compete in the Okinawa World Series and the first Euro Grand Prix E-Tournament this month.

“It is just a 465-point difference and I just need to win two more tournaments to seal the deal,” said Delos Santos.
