NO. 1-RANKED One Championship female atomweight Denice “The Menace” Zamboanga is busy in Thailand training and staying in harness in case she gets the call to compete in an upcoming card in Bangkok.

Bouts for One Championship’s A New Breed events through August and September have yet to be announced but Zamboanga is hoping that she can return to the One Circle soon.

With lockdown restrictions tightening in her native Philippines due to a worsening Covid-19 situation. With Zamboanga in Thailand is her older brother, Drex, and friend Fritz Biagtan. Together, they are preparing Zamboanga for a potential upcoming bout.

“Right now I’m just training here in Bangkok with my brother Drex and our friend Fritz Biagtan. I’m very lucky because I can still do what I love to do,” Zamboanga said. “I just want to stay ready, because anytime, I can get called up to compete now that One Championship is hosting events here in Thailand.”

One Championship successfully returned to its flagship event schedule with One: No Surrender last July 31. No Surrender II was staged on Friday night with its third installment set a week later, while three more shows are lined up in Bangkok on August 28 and September 11 and 18.

Zamboanga is hoping to appear on at least one of those cards.

“I really want to fight and compete, so I’m just waiting for that call from ONE Championship. Need to stay as sharp as possible, because the World Title shot is just around the corner,” she said. “Right now, I need to work on my speed. Speed is a great asset to have in the ring. Of course, I’m constantly working on my striking skills and ground game. Thankfully my brother is here to help me.”

The 23-year-old rising star also recently revealed that she parted ways with the Fairtex team in Pattaya to pursue her own ventures.
