CEBU, Philippines -  Filipina boxing champion Jujeath Nagaowa will make her ONE FC debut when she meets Jeet Toshi of India in the undercard of ONE FC: Rise of Heroes on May 2 at the SM Mall of  Asia Arena.

Nagaowa will take on Indian kickboxer Jeet Toshi. She will make history when she enters the ONE FC cage, becoming the first Filipina mixed martial artist in Asia’s largest mixed martial arts organization.

The headlining bout will pit reigning ONE FC Bantamweight World Champion Bibiano Fernandes against the Japanese No.1 contender, Masakatsu Ueda.

The former WBC Asia Atomweight Champion will be making the transition from boxing with an impressive resume that features 12 professional victories.

Nagaowa has nifty footwork that she uses to get out of her opponents’ punches and knockout power in both hands.

She will be looking to demonstrate her boxing skills along with her newly acquired mixed martial arts techniques as she makes her debut in front of her fellow countrymen.

For his part, Jeet Toshi is a seven time kickboxing champion from India. Her illustrious kickboxing career has led her to coaching and training stints in Bahrain and Australia.

As the pioneer for female mixed martial arts in India, she has paved the way for more women in the populous country to participate in the sport, and will look to make a statement by emerging victorious. (LPM) (FREEMAN)
