SINGAPORE — Hometown heroes Christian Lee and Tiffany Teo electrified the crowd at Singapore Indoor Stadium with impressive victories Friday night at ONE: Heart of the Lion here.
Lee needed only a round to finish off Kazuki Tokudome of Japan and bounce back from a title fight loss to Martin Nguyen and a DQ defeat to Edward Kelly just two months ago.
Teo showed her toughness in beating the celebrated Brazilian jiu-jitsu specialist Michelle Nicolini, who was winded after the second round, by unanimous decision.
With Nicolini gassed out in the third round, Teo used the cage to her advantage and peppered Nicolini with solid punches and leg kicks.
Meanwhile, legendary kickboxer Giorgio Petrosyan chalked up the 98th win of his career after another masterful performance in a unanimous decision win over Sorgraw Petchvindee in a Super Series kickboxing match.
