ONE: Team Lakay’s Geje Eustaquio back on track after convincing win over Korean foe
MANILA, Philippines—Geje Eustaquio got back to winning ways with a dominant performance against Korea’s Kyu Sung Kim in ONE: Enter the Dragon at Singapore Indoor Stadium.
The former ONE World flyweight champion put on a commanding striking display that earned him the unanimous decision win, his first victory since losing the title in January against Adriano Moraes.
Eustaquio (12-7) connected with combinations after combinations tagging Kyu with a spinning back fist that transitioned from a head kick in the third round.
The Team Lakay stalwart then connected with the stable’s patented back spinning elbow in the fourth round that stunned Kyu (9-3).
Despite the win, Eustaquio said he’s not fully satisfied with what he did in the fight.
“I’m not a hundred percent satisfied with my performance. I’m looking forward to getting better and I’m willing to go back to the drawing board and be a better athlete,” said Eustaquio.
