Jomary Torres wants to make sure she will get the win in her cage fight against former world title contender Jenny "Lady GoGo" Huang in ONE: Fire and Fury at Mall of Asia Arena on Friday.

This is the reason "The Zamboanginian Fighter" skipped going to vacation during the holidays to put her total focus into training.

“Hindi po ako umuwi, as in focused muna ako sa training,” said Torres, who is coming off a 4-fight losing streak, during the open workout last Tuesday.

“Kasi mahirap yung uuwi ka sa probinsya na wala training, kaya hindi ako umuwi sa amin." 

Torres, who opened her ONE career with 3 consecutive victories before suffering losses, had to elevate her skills to prepare against her foe from Chinese Taipei.

"Ibibigay ko yung lakas ko para matalo ko siya, para makuha ko yung goal ko," she said.

"Pinag-focus namin lahat ng skills para ma-improve. Ngayon, gagawin ko lahat na para makuha yung panalo this coming 31, this Friday."
