Folayang preparing for Nguyen’s speed

Filipino ONE champion Eduard Folayang knows the caliber of opponent he’s up against.

Folayang is anticipating a speedier fighter in Martin Nguyen, also the ONE featherweight champion, in his second title defense of his lightweight title on November 10 at Mall of Asia Arena.

“Ev Ting is a natural lightweight. Mark is a natural featherweight. So I expect that he will be faster and quicker than Ev Ting. It will be a good match up,” said Folayang on Tuesday during their face off in Makati.

The Baguio native said he was impressed with how Nguyen took down Marat Gafurov to earn his world title in Macao just last August months after he defeated Ting in a dominant performance via unanimous decision.

Against his upcoming Vietnamese-Australian foe, who is moving up weight for their cross-divisional fight, Folayang wants to prove that the lightweight is his territory.
