Team Lakay’s Carlos Alvarez guns for his fourth straight win in One Championship as he takes on debutant Title Chai in ONE Friday Fights 36 scheduled October 6, at the historic Lumpini Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.
Alvarez has been a revelation in ONE Championship, boasting a flawless record of two victories within the organization.
His meteoric rise has captured the imagination of fight fans worldwide, thanks to his exceptional skills and unyielding determination.
Alvarez debuted with ONE in April this year and scored a second – round TKO of Reza Abasi then followed it up with a second-round submission of Sadegh Ghasemi.
Alvarez has showcased his versatility and well-rounded abilities in the ONE Circle, excelling in striking, wrestling, and grappling.
Coach Mark Sangiao, the guiding force behind Team Lakay’s remarkable success, firmly believes that Alvarez holds a significant advantage heading into this bout.
Sangiao points to Alvarez’s unwavering confidence as a key factor.
Aside from his confidence, Sangiao said the most significant asset that Alvarez brings into the cage is his completeness as a fighter.
His striking prowess is awe-inspiring, with a dynamic arsenal of striking techniques that can dismantle opponents with pinpoint precision. His wrestling skills allow him to control the pace of the fight, dictate the distance, and secure takedowns when needed.
Additionally, Alvarez’s grappling proficiency makes him a threat on the mat, capable of submitting adversaries if the fight goes to the ground.
But the Filipino has been handed the most difficult assignment of his career to date facing a Thai/French featherweight and an understudy of former ONE athlete Mehdi Zatout.
Chai, ranked 37th in France as a lightweight, has already seen action against top fighters around the globe.
As the Team Lakay fighter recently closed out his camp in La Trinidad and has flown to Thailand last week, a win over Chai will solidify Alvarez’ status as a one of the contenders in the featherweight division.
