One-time world title challenger Joshua Pacio of Baguio City's Team Lakay is slated to figure in yet another tough contest when he takes on former ONE strawweight champion Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke on the undercard of 'ONE Championship: Warrior Kingdom' on March 11 at Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand.

The 21-year-old Pacio last saw action when he challenged the reigning ONE strawweight champion Yoshitaka Naito of Japan in October.

Pacio made good account of himself during the fight, but was submitted in the third round when he left himself open for a rear naked choke.

Amnuaysirichoke, meanwhile, last stepped inside the cage in May last year against Naito as well. An ex-Lumpinee champion and thus a highly renowned Muay Thai practicioner, Amnuaysirichoke lost his belt to the Japanese by submission in the fourth round.

Pacio and Amnuaysirichoke is scheduled to collide for three five-minute rounds. —ALG, GMA News
