Gina Iniong vs. Mei Yamaguchi rematch booked for ONE event

Team Lakay’s Gina Iniong takes no days off.

Iniong is fresh off a win at last weekend’s ONE card in Manila, but she isn’t taking any breaks as she’s scheduled to fight Mei Yamaguchi in Singapore on November 24. As reported by ABS CBN Sports’ Santino Honasan, this fight has officially been booked.

Originally, Yamaguchi was set to fight ONE atom weight champion Angela Lee on the card, but Lee was involved in a car accident last week, which forced her to withdraw from their bout. Iniong steps in to replace Lee on two weeks notice.

This won’t be the first time that Yamaguchi and Iniong will fight. They fought in Manila in 2014 under Pacific Xtreme Combat. The fight was action packed, with Iniong getting the close decision win.

Iniong (6-2) is currently riding a three-fight win streak, including back-to-back wins in ONE Championship. Yamaguchi, on the other hand, is coming off a submission win last June after losing her first two bouts under the ONE banner.
