KUALA LUMPUR, March 7 (Bernama) -- Two Malaysian atletes of ONE Championship, Asia's largest global sports media property, are ready to fight at 'ONE: Visions Of Victory' this Friday.
In a statement, ONE Championship said bantamweight contender Hisyam "Zephrus" Samsudin and 19-year-old "Shadow Cat" Jihin Radzuan showcased their talents and skills at an open workout at the "She Fights - A Self-Defence Education for Women Workshop 2018" on Feb 27.
"It is an honour to be a part of such an important event. SheFights is doing incredible work raising awareness for crimes against women. I am happy to help lend my talents in this great cause," said Hisyam in the statement.
"I am happy to help lend my talents in this great cause. Women all over the world, especially here in Malaysia, should have access to the knowledge of self-defence and everyone should be able to protect themselves and their loved ones. Thank you to ONE Championship and to SheFights for this great privilege," he added.
Hisyam of Kota Kinabalu, Sabah is a former WBF Asia-Pacific Light Heavyweight Boxing Champion who trains at the highly-regarded Borneo Tribal Squad with former female strawweight talent Ann "Athena " Osman and coach AJ "Pyro " Lias Mansor.
Samsudin likes to pepper opponents with heavy handed strikes, utilising his world-class boxing base to break down his foes. Samsudin´s next assignment is against Indonesia´s Jerome S. Paye.

Jihin of Johor Bahru is a highly-touted young martial arts prospect and former FIOGA Wushu World Champion making her ONE Championship debut. A well-rounded competitor, Jihin is a Muay Thai and wushu practitioner with a blue belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
A former Southeast Asian Open Gold and Silver Medalist in Muay Thai, Jihin is known for her varied striking skills and terrific knockout power. Jihin will take her first step inside the ONE Championship cage in Kuala Lumpur to face India's Puja Tomar.
The open workout demonstrated a self-defence system created for ladies dubbed the "She Fights Technique ", teaching women on how best to respond to harassment whether it is sexual in nature or domestic violence and other types of violence.
