Aguon eyes rematch with Kwak but will face a different foe for vacant PXC title

Former PXC bantamweight champion Kyle Aguon wants to reclaim the belt in a rematch with Kwan Ho Kwak, but that’s unlikely to happen.

[mks_dropcap style=”square” size=”52″ bg_color=”#1588db” txt_color=”#ffffff”]A[/mks_dropcap]guon was informed that the title is now vacant. Hence, he’ll be fighting for the belt against another contender in Trevin Jones. As evidence of Aguon’s mettle, he immediately took the fight. Their title bout will headline Headlining the promotion’s upcoming card this November.

In spite the heartbreaking decision loss last January, Aguon is in high spirits for his inside the Terrordome. He says the opportunity came in a perfect time. He added that he’s 100% healthy from what he sustained against the South Korean champ.

“Super excited! I’m coming off an injury and feel so much better,” Aguon tells DojoDrifter.com. “I was frustrated at first only because I wanted another chance at Kwak. But when I was offered a chance at the belt I was willing to scrap whomever.”

The 27-year old fighter from Umatac, Guam has come a long way in his career with a share of victories and defeats. For Aguon, these experiences only made him tougher and hungrier as a fighter. He believes that he has paid his dues. Aguon, PXC title holder, is now determined to prove why he is still one of the region’s best through his upcoming performance.

“I guess one of the main things I would say is better game planning. I’ve been in this sport for about 7, 8 years and realized my experience can take me further in the game.” He adds, “When I say experience, I mean overall technique which also includes nutrition strength and conditioning. For some reason, I keep falling short from getting the call to UFC. Hopefully, after this fight, I’ll be moving up in my MMA career.”

Facing Trevin Jones for the third time, Aguon sees himself the better man. He eyes nothing more than a repeat of their matchup three years ago. He is confident that he will regain his title that he lost nearly ten months ago.

“No difference, same result as our last fight my hand will be raised!”
