The most senior member from Malaysia’s ONE Championship stable is ready to lead the line at ONE: EDGE OF GREATNESS.
Ev “ET” Ting returns to the Circle to take on hometown hero Amir Khan in the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Friday, 22 November.
Without a doubt, it will be a tough test for the Malaysian warrior, but these are the situations in which he normally thrives.
“I’m excited to compete again,” the 30-year-old said. “As always, the biggest motivational factor for me is to provide a better future for my family and team.”
This will be Ting’s third appearance in the “Lion City.” In his 2015 Singapore debut he lost to Marat Gafurov, and then he lost to Saygid Guseyn Arslanaliev earlier this year.
Singapore has not been happy hunting grounds for “ET,” but he is keen to put a stop to the rot and continue his climb to the top of the lightweight division.
“It’s been a tough training camp here in Auckland MMA as I prepare for this fight,” he said.
“It’s a very similar camp here in Auckland MMA to the one I had while I prepared for Daichi Abe. However, this time I’ve been doing a lot of drilling sequences and all the boring tedious workouts that the fans don’t see.”
Training aside, the martial artist also praises the coaches, teammates, and everyone at Auckland MMA for their help and guidance in shaping him to be the athlete he is today.
“Coach Hamish Robertson has always been there for me from the first day. And I’d like to thank him for his professional guidance,” the former ONE Lightweight World Title challenger said.
“Auckland MMA is recognized worldwide, and we are one of the most consistent gyms here. We have over five top guys competing worldwide in this last quarter of 2019.”
By the looks of it, Ting is ready to continue his winning run in The Home Of Martial Arts. But can the Malaysian sensation add another name to his impressive resume of wins on 22 November?
