“ Jaise hi Jeka (Saragih) won his semifinal bout, maine bola ab Pawan bhai ka badla lene ka time aa gaya hai (As soon as Jeka won his semifinal match, I declared that it was time to take revenge on him),” Jubli told during an interaction with the media on Tuesday. (Via~The Hindu)
Anshul Jubli will make Jeka fight on his terms
Heading into this fight, Anshul Jubli has heavily focused on his cardio and stamina.
“My cardio and stamina are excellent,” Anshul said about his preparation at Soma MMA in Bali, Indonesia. “My last opponent (Kyung Pyo Kim) finished nearly 80% of his games, and I believe he was far superior to Jeka, but I still beat him.”
With that being said, Anshul has made it clear that he isn’t taking his fight against Jeka Saragih lightly as the Indonesian as a terrific knockout power and has ended nearly half of his fight inside the distance.
“Anything can happen in MMA. If he lands a good shot on my chin, I could be knocked out, but the chances are low. I know my range and how to fight him. When you engage with him inside, he is very dangerous, but I am not going to fight his fight. Instead, (I) will make him fight my fight,” Anshul said.
