The 20-year-old Sangiao hiked his record to 5-0.
His latest victory was Team Lakay’s first after its bets Eduard Folayang and Jenelyn Olsim were stopped early in their respective bouts.
Brimming with confidence, Sangiao said he’s ready to fight whoever ONE Championship puts in front of him.
“Anyone. Depends on ONE. I’m just here to show what I can do and do my best.”
