‘The Vampire’ Saiful ready to strike
of what was supposed to be One Championships’ inaugural event in Surabaya. Due to logistical issues, the event has been postponed until further notice.
Nonetheless, Saiful, who arrived in Macau on Tuesday, is excited about his impending fight against the unbeaten 28-year-old Chen Lei of Changsa who has five straight victories on his belt.
“I haven’t met my opponent yet but I am ready.”
Nicknamed ‘The Vampire’, Saiful is ready to get back in the cage to draw some blood after his last fight back in February where he stopped Filipino Bernard Soriano by way of technical knock-out (TKO) in front of his home crowd in Kuala Lumpur.
Standing in his way of another win is Chen Lei, who is a Brazilian jiujitsu (BJJ) practitioner and the Shanghai Open BJJ champion with impressive grappling skills.
But it is Chen Lei that Saiful is excited about as he is going to fight in the Vegas of Asia for the first time in his career at the Cotai Arena of the Venetian Macau.
“The place is very nice and I am super excited to be here and to fight in the arena where boxing legends like Pacquiao fought previously,” he said. Farah Azharie
