39-year-old ONE Championship bantamweight Casey Suire may not be as young as some of the competitors in his weight class, but he certainly has the biggest heart.
This Saturday, at the Jakarta Convention Center in Indonesia, Suire (5-2) will take on Chinese fighter Xie Bin (1-1) in a three-round bantamweight contest at ONE: TITLES & TITANS. Suire is coming off a loss in his last outing, a knockout setback to Muin Gafurov nearly a year ago.
“Losing is not an easy thing to get past, but it’s a part of life and it helps us grow as individuals. I had two setbacks in 2015, but I am a better fighter now because of it,” said Suire.
“I put too much pressure on myself, and was overly cautious. This time, I’m gonna go and have some fun, and get back to doing what made me successful in the first place. This has been my best camp yet and I put in the hard work, so I’m going get my reward.”
