PARANAQUE--In spite of the fact that he has to face a different opposition, Christian Lee is already locked in for Friday night.
The younger brother of reigning One women's champion Angela insisted to Dugout Philippines on Tuesday that he will not change his game plan that he already mapped for Keanu Subba ahead of his showdown with Wan Jian Ping at One: Kings of Destiny at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay.
"I train to beat the best fighters in the world, so you can take out Keanu for another fighter yet it will not make a difference," Christian Lee said during the pre-fight press conference at the City of Dreams Grand Ballroom.
Subba, the younger brother of Gianni, had to beg off from competition due to an injury he suffered during training, prompting One to replace him with Wan.
Still, Christian Lee sees himself winning convincingly over Wan.
"[I have an advantage] everywhere. I will beat him quickly," vowed Lee.
In the end, however, he has utmost respect for his original opponent.
"[Injury is] part of the sport. When you're training that hard for a fight, injuries are bound to happen. I just wish [Keanu] a speedy recovery," Lee further said.
