Pacio sees potential title fight if victorious in ONE Macau tilt

MACAU—Joshua Pacio was barely a teenager when he faced Yoshitaka Naito for the ONE World strawweight title back in 2016 in what became his first loss of his budding professional career.

The 21-year-old has since bounced back from his setback after escaping with a split decision victory over Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke in March of 2017 to up his record to 9-1.

And Pacio knows that if he gets another win on Saturday, a title shot may very well be on the horizon for him.

“There are people who’re saying that if I win, there’ll be another title shot,” said Pacio in Filipino Friday at Holiday Inn.

Pacio is set to face Naito’s Japanese compatriot Hayato Suzuki (16-0-2) on Saturday at Cotai Arena in ONE Championship: Kings and Conquerors.

“I believe that this is the challenge ONE has given me, I think they saw that I’ve improved after I lost.”
