Baguio City - It was a shocking night to the Filipino fans especially to the Cordillerans seeing their champion knocked out cold inside the octagon.
Last night bout between two champions Martin Nguyen and Eduard Folayang proved sports favors only one and that Nguyen deserves the victory. It was a good fight for both of them showcasing the bests of their boxing power and skill though Folayang got caught with a surprised right hand counter hook from Nguyen after delivering his spinning heel kick in the second round.

But Nguyen's reaction after Folayang laid on the canvas shows the true color of a champion. He didn't go for an immediate celebration like most winners do but Nguyen immediately rushed and knelled down beside Folayang to make sure he was okay. 

Nguyen tried to lift Folayang's head to make sure he was okay but the ringside doctor and the referees move him away. Video from One Championship's FB page showed Nguyen went to the other side and holds Folayang's hand like a true friend.

In the post fight interview, Nguyen admitted he doesn't want to see Eduard in that kind of situation because they were good friends.

"Look, honestly, it really hurt. I never ever, ever want to see someone I like, or some I know go through that... I just couldn't help but have little hard feeling for Eduard when he got knocked out." Martin said.

He also sends a heartfelt message to the Filipino champ and wish him to recover well and come back stronger.

"Eduard, I still love you like a brother, I hope you're fine and I hope and you come back stronger. I'm still your number one fan.

The November 10th One Championship bout in Manila has caused many Filipino fans both happy and sad.

For the Cordilleran fans and Team Lakay, it was a victory 3 - 0. Kevin Belingon, Jushua Pacio and Gina Iniong got the victory on their side, while Eduard Folayang and undefeated Danny Kingad suffered loss.
