Pacio unfazed by last-minute opponent change

Joshua Pacio is likely on his way to a title shot if he goes on to hurdle his Chinese opponent Min Qiang Lan in the co-main event of ONE: Global Superheroes on Friday.

But as much as the Filipino strawweight contender wants to get his hands on the gold, he doesn’t want to get ahead of himself especially with a big bout coming up against a dangerous opponent.

“Of course, I want the belt but for me, right now, I’m not thinking about getting a title shot just yet,” Pacio told INQUIRER.net in Filipino on Tuesday.

“I still need to gain more experience for me to get to the level of champions,” he added.

Pacio is supposed to fight Pongsiri Misatit, but the Thai was forced to withdraw due to an injury.

ONE announced the opponent change on Friday, giving Pacio’s camp less than two weeks to adjust their game plan.
