PUSPUSAN na ang paghahanda ni Danny “The King” Kingad laban kay Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Reece “Lightning” McLaren sa ONE: DAWN OF HEROES sa August 2 sa MOA Arena.

Isa si Kingad sa limang Team Lakay members na sasabak sa fight card sa harap ng mga kababayan.

Inamin ni Kingad na ipinagmamalaki niya ang pagkakasama sa Team Lakay.

“Being a member of Team Lakay has played a huge factor in my improvement, not only as an athlete but as a human being as well,” pahayag ni Kingad.

“Prior to joining the team, I knew very little about martial arts apart from the basic kicks and punches. Under the guidance of my coach, I learned proper execution as well as other skills such as grappling, submission wrestling, fluid striking, and others.

“When I was young, I was in a very bad crowd and it had a negative impact on my life. Team Lakay helped me out of that dark place and taught me values like respect and honor, and I generally became a better person,” aniya.

Makakasama niya na magtatangkang magbigay ng dangal sa bayan ang mga katropang sina Eduard Folayang, Honorio Banario, Geje Eustaquio, at Edward Kelly.

Halos sabay-sabay silang nagsasanay sa pangangasiwa ni coach Mark Sangiao.

“Personally, I think having five of us Team Lakay members competing on the same card is advantageous,” sambit ni Kingad.

“Everyone’s always at the gym training and we’re all focused and determined to be in the best condition possible. We know we are all individually responsible for the outcome of our bouts, so we help each other get to where we want to be.
