DSC06961 Filipina mixed martial arts fighter Jujeath Nagaowa, who will be making
her ONE Fighting Championship debut on May 2 in ONE FC Rise of Heroes at
the Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena, guarantees she is more “inspired” to fight
now that she has broken off with her boxer boyfriend.

In an interview, Nagaowa said: “I’m inspired 10 times now that he’s no
longer around.” When pointed to her the statement seems contradictory, her
only answer is, “Basta.”

She revealed through questioning that it’s been three months since the
breakup. “Naka move on na ko.”

Her having a boyfriend was an issue during her training last year when she
was supposed to fight Malaysian muay thai contender Siti Syahida Binte
Adek, a bout which was scrapped at the last minute. Her relationship was
reportedly interfering in her training.

Nagaowa will be battling Indian kickboxing champion Jeet Toshi on May 2.
She is aware of the importance of the fight as she is the first female
mixed martial arts fighter from the Philippines seeking her rightful place
in the male-dominated sport.

She said she is not taking her fight with Toshi lightly. “Magaling din sya
pero kakayanin ko.”

To prepare herself, she has joined a new gym, the Makati-based Team Insider.
Her training regimen includes jogging in the morning and 2 to 3-hour skills
drill in the afternoon seven days a week.

Her new gym provides her with monthly allowance, food and accommodation
within the gym compound.

“May training program na binigay sa akin yung gym ko sa laban ko na eto,”
Nagaowa said.

She said despite the cancelled bout last December, she maintained her
conditioning. As a matter of fact, she was hired as a boxing sparring
partner in Japan in February this year.

Prior to joining the ONE FC organization, the Benguet lass used to be the
WBC Asia atomweight champion who has beaten the best boxers in Asia. She
was a boxer for seven years.

Her aspiration is to become an MMA champion. “I dream of defending a belt
in the future.”

Nagaowa has good footwork that she uses to get out of her opponents’
punches and has knockout power in both hands.  

Toshi, on the other hand, is a seven-time kickboxing titlist from India,
where she is considered the pioneer for female MMA.
