Both world champions want to finish their trilogy. Atomweight champion Angela Lee recently requested that she go up in weight class to challenge for the strawweight title against Jing Nan.
In an interview with ONE Championship, 'Unstoppable' Lee said:
“I think that I have grown a lot more in these past few years and made a lot more improvements than she has, and I think it can show in our performances."
"So definitely, when we match up again, it’s going to be a different story, and I think everyone is eager to see it... I definitely want to capture the strawweight belt, so I’d love to fight Xiong again and step up to strawweight and try to capture that champ-champ status.”
The strawweight title holder Xiong Jing Nan agrees that their must be a trilogy fight between the two champions. Speaking to Sportskeeda MMA, she explained:
"Of course I want that trilogy fight with Angela. I've been thinking about that fight for a long-time. I'm looking forward to the trilogy."
The two champions have met twice previously, with both matches having title implications. Now, both ONE athletes are requesting that it is time for the trilogy. Neither has a fight currently scheduled for 2022.
