MANILA, Philippines – Calling Tim Lake is nothing new to fighters.
This is why Tim Lake head coach Mark Sangia also knows that his wards are ready for the challenge no matter what the opposition is.
The three fighters recently expressed their intent to fight the Baguio-based fighters.
Fabricio wants a piece from Andrew Stephen Loman, Reese McLaren keen to toe-to-toe with Danny King, where Gurdarshan Mangat’s goal is to test his skills against former one-flyweight champion Gage Eustacio.
“We’ve been called to a lot of events before but three call-outs at an event is definitely something. We are being searched and I think that’s why our Team Lake athletes are skilled and able to face the same elite athletes inside the ring, “said Sangia.
Of the three, a confrontation between Andrade and Loman led to an all-out war.
Andre, a rising Brazilian star, is coming off a knockout victory over top-ranked South Korean fighter Kwon Won Il in ONE 158 last week.
Loman, on the other hand, has had an impressive first two fights at One to climb to number three in the Bantamweight rankings.
And it’s only a matter of time before two cross paths get in the way of getting a crack to John Lineker to win the world title.
“In any case, I have a strong goal to bring the belt home in the Philippines, from Lineker or Andre,” Loman said.
“We are aiming for the same goal and that is to face John Lineker and become the world champion in the bantamweight division. Andrew is definitely a tough guy and if he gets a chance to fight Lineker before me and if he knocks out Linker then I’m ready to snatch the belt from him if I get the chance. “
