Rocky 2017 Ignites Jenny Huang’s Never-Say-Die Spirit to Claim Victory

Jenny Huang’s Never-Say-Die Spirit

Jenny “Lady GoGo” Huang of Chinese Taipei is starting to really feel a sense of urgency when it comes to her professional career as a martial artist.

Once a top contender, the Taiwanese atomweight is attempting to catapult herself back into the title picture and is desperately trying to avoid the first three-bout losing skid of her prizefighting stint

Huang expects to solve both dilemmas on 20 April when she battles Filipina hard-hitter Gina “Conviction” Iniong on the undercard of ONE: HEROES OF HONOR, which emanates from the 20,000-capacity SM Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines.

“I want to vie for the top prize of ONE Championship’s atomweight division again. In order to achieve that, I need to build a momentum with a huge win,” she said.

Huang made two appearances in the promotion last year, but she failed to have her hand raised in both cage outings.


Jenny Huang’s Never-Say-Die Spirit

The 27-year-old Taiwanese standout yielded to Angela Lee for the ONE Women’s Atomweight World Championship by third-round technical knockout in March 2017 before she suffered another defeat at the hands of Mei Yamaguchi via second-round submission two months later.

“It was frustrating. After winning five-straight matches to start my career, now I’ve lost two consecutive bouts. It’s difficult because I am in a tough position. Another loss is detrimental,” Huang shared.

Although her back is against the wall, Huang pointed out that her string of setbacks spurred a drive to dig deep to ace her next assignment.

“I’ve dealt with my recent setback like a real warrior. My desire is to win again. I will work hard to get the win this coming April 20 in Manila,” she stated.

However, Huang admitted that getting the victory at ONE: HEROES OF HONOR will be arduous as the opposition that stands in front of her on 20 April is no slouch.

A six-time national Wushu champion and a member of the renowned Team Lakay, Iniong owns a professional record of 6-3, with four of her six victories coming by thrilling finishes, including two highlight-reel submissions and two knockouts.

After falling short to Yamaguchi in a title eliminator last November, Iniong will look to regain her winning form as she takes on Huang.

“She is a good striker with heavy hands. I fought her teammate, April Osenio, before. Like April, I know she will come out with guns blazing,” Huang explained.

Determined to build upon her judo black belt background and continue her natural evolution as a martial artist, Huang splits her time between Northern China’s Tianjin Top Team and Hiroyuki Abe’s Abe Ani Combat Club in Tokyo Japan.

As she shares the ONE Championship stage with a stand-up specialist like Iniong, Huang bared that she felt the inclination to improve on all facets of the game.

“My fight against Angela Lee showed striking was my weakness. Now, I am facing a great striker in Iniong. I had to improve all of my techniques, on offense and defense. Every time I am training, I need to be prepared, and ready, to be an all-around fighter. Before, my strong point was only grappling. I cannot just focus on one thing,” she clarified.

Putting the dismal 2017 campaign behind her, Huang is determined to show the world just how much she has evolved as a martial artist.

“Gina Iniong is tough as nails. But l will show everyone my new skills in this bout. I am confident that I will win this time around,” she ended.

It's huge! Kiefer Ravena's salary means a lot is expected from him

If NLEX could offer him more then maybe they would but for now, Keifer Ravena would have to settle for a maximum rookie salary that's worth 8.5 million in three years. 
The 2nd overall pick of this year's draft may have waited to get into the PBA but that delay was worth it after the team who drafted him showed big confidence and locked him for three years. 
As per our source, his salary on a monthly basis will be at  P150,000 a month for the first year. Then will go to P225,000 and the last year would be at  P350,000.

At 24 years old, however, the former Ateneo star is only one of the two players this rookie class who's getting a max deal, one of which is Rookie Christian Standhardinger.
