Angela Lee to "pay close attention" to Iniong-Hills clash

A future world title shot could await the winner of the Gina Iniong-Natalie Hills showdown. One Championship
By Ivan Saldajeno

PARAƑAQUE—She will be at the Mall of Asia Arena on Friday primarily to support her younger brother.

But Angela Lee could be an interesting spectator to the showdown between Gina Iniong and Natalie Hills at One: Kings of Destiny.

All eyes will be on Iniong as she makes her much-awaited debut in One Championship as a quick title shot could be given to her if she takes care of Hills in what would be the curtain-raiser to the fight card scheduled for a 7 p.m. start.

"I'll be paying close attention to that fight," Lee told some sportswriters during the pre-fight press conference at the City of Dreams Grand Ballroom on Tuesday.

She would admit that she already had a glimpse of what Iniong, a part of the fabled Team Lakay stable, can do after reviewing the replay of her fight against Mei Yamaguchi when they were still at PXC.

"When I was preparing for my fight against Mei Yamaguchi, that's how I saw her. She's a good fighter. She's a very tough girl," Lee described Iniong's gameplay. "I'm looking forward to see her fight on Friday."

However, she insisted, "But first, I'm gonna focus on Istela Nunes."

Both Lee and Nunes are set to collide on May 26 at One: Dynasty of Heroes in Singapore.

Still, she expressed her readiness to fight Iniong if in case One sets them up soon.

"I'm the champ. I'm ready to fight anyone," vowed Lee.
