PETALING JAYA: Jihin “Shadow Cat” Radzuan is slowly making her presence felt in ONE Championship after notching her fifth win which could line up a big fight for her in the near future.

Fighting out of Johor Baru, Jihin turned on a clinical grappling performance to win by unanimous decision against Vietnamese-American star Bi “Killer Bee” Nguyen in the atomweight class at the ONE: Bing Bang event in Singapore Indoor Stadium on Friday.

And she hopes the performance is good enough to earn her a spot in the Atomweight Grand Prix.

“I do not want to call out anyone and I never back down from anyone. As for the Grand Prix, yes, I’m confident as I deserve a spot.

“Firstly, because I have fought the best like Jenny Huang, who was previously a title contender and Denice Zamboanga as well, despite the loss. I mean, ONE have never given me an easy fight.

“They gave me all the tough women in the division, so I feel I definitely deserve a spot.”

On what is next for her, Jihin said she wants a crack at the belt.

“I think it is the same for all of us in the division; our goal is the belt. I have a lot to work on after my quarantine.

“I will be back in the gym and fix what I have to fix.

“As I mentioned, I will fight anyone. It’s not about who I want to fight but who I deserve to fight, so we’ll see how it goes.”
