Ritu Phogat will now fight Philippines’ Jenelyn Olsim at ONE Championship’s Atomweight world grand Prix on October 29.
Ritu Phogat was supposed to fight Itsuki Hirata in the semi-finals of the Atomweight Grand Prix but has now been replaced by Jenelyn Olsim on four days’ notice.
Ritu has braved her way past more experienced peers and far more skilful opponents to earn her spot as the #4-ranked contender of the division. It hasn’t been an easy journey, but her courage to repeatedly display her best when it matters most is something that separates Phogat from her foes.
She will have the chance to add another strong showing to her resume when she takes on Jenelyn Olsim in the ONE Atomweight World Grand Prix semifinals at ONE: NEXTGEN this Friday, 29 October.
