Former ONE Championship flyweight world champion Geje Eustaquio is not dismissing the possibility of competing in the ONE Super Series.
The ONE Super Series features many of the world’s elite strikers from various combat sport discip-lines who compete under the international kickboxing and Muay Thai rules.
But the 31-year-old Team Lakay fighter said he is currently focused on his mixed martial arts training, hoping to become one of the top contenders for the title currently held by Adriano Moraes of Brazil.
Eustaquio has defeated Moraes in June 2018 and captured the world belt, but Moraes came back strong and regained the belt in January 2019.
“It would be a privilege for me to compete in ONE Super Series among legends, but right now, I’m just focused on my MMA career and looking to get back on track. It’s been a rough couple of years, but I still consider myself among the top in my division. My mind is still on the flyweight title, and that’s what I’m working towards,” Eustaquio said.
Eustaquio likewise gave his deep respect to reigning ONE Super Series Muay Thai flyweight world champion Rodtang Jitmuangnon, who is considered the best in the world in the division.
“Rodtang is a tremendous athlete, and a big inspiration to many. Even though he’s the champion, he never forgets where he came from. You can still find humility in him, and I have so much respect for him,” said Eustaquio.
The Thai champion is referred to cleverly by hardcore fans as Rod-tank because of his ability to mow down opponents with no abandon, blasting them with his blitzkrieg of powerful combinations as he constantly moves forward.
Eustaquio said Rodtang’s greatest strength is his durability and his ability to overcome some of the most difficult challenges as a combat sports athlete.
As of press time, Rodtang is defending his ONE flyweight Muay Thai world title against countryman, Petchdam “The Baby Shark” Petchyindee Academy in the main event of ONE: No Surrender in Bangkok. – Harley F. Palangchao
