Learning doesn’t stop for Geje Eustaquio—inside and outside ONE cage
MACAU—There are two goals that Geje Eustaquio wants to achieve in the foreseeable future, one of which involves attaining a feat outside of the ONE Championship cage.
Eustaquio, the ONE interim flyweight champion, holds a Master’s diploma in Physical Education from University of the Cordilleras and he doesn’t just want to become the full title holder but he also wants to pursue a higher degree of learning.
The 29-year-old Team Lakay member said he wants to either get a Doctorate or take up Law.
“It’s going to be between a Doctor’s degree or a Law degree, we will see but I cannot say for now,” said Eustaquio Thursday after ONE Championship’s media luncheon at Studio City here in Macau.
“For me, life is all about learning. It doesn’t mean that when you have a degree it’s so you can work or you will have a better job, it’s about learning.”
Eustaquio (10-6), however, will first have to deal with his rematch with Adriano Moraes (17-2) in ONE: Pinnacle of Power on June 23 for the undisputed flyweight belt.
That responsibility, however, doesn’t deter Eustaquio from looking into his educational future.
“When you’re holding an interim belt, the responsibility is a bit harder because before I would train two, three rounds now I train four, five, six rounds,” said Eustaquio.
“Or if I become the undisputed champion, Spiderman said that ‘with great power comes great responsibility’ so I have to maintain that belt and train even harder.”
