Yamaguchi eyes quick revenge vs Filipino bet Iniong

SINGAPORE—It may not have been the title match she had initially prepared for, but Mei Yamaguchi’s upcoming bout against Filipino fighter Gina Iniong was something she had hoped to happen again a long time.

The last time these two fighters met in 2014, Yagamuchi went home with the seventh loss—a split decision—of her career.

Now the Japanese martial artist  gets a shot at revenge when they clash in ONE: Immortal Pursuit on Friday at Singapore Indoor stadium here.

“I was glad that Gina answered ‘yes’ to the match on the Singapore card with me,” said Yamaguchi. “I have always looked for a chance for revenge. It is the perfect moment.”

Yamaguchi was supposed to challenge ONE Atomweight Champion Angela Lee for the belt, but the Singaporean star met a car accident two weeks before their scheduled title fight.
