ONE Championship 118: Xiong Jing Nan repeats the feat, defeats Tiffany Teo to retain title

China’s Xiong Jing Nan retained her ONE women’s strawweight title at ONE Championship 118, but her rematch win over Tiffany Teo proved to be a much tougher assignment the second time around.

Xiong (15-2) defeated Singapore’s Teo (9-2) via fourth-round TKO back in January 2018 to claim the inaugural strawweight title at “ONE Championship 66: Kings of Courage” and went on to register three defenses of her title, while Teo bounced back with a pair of victories to push herself back into title contention.

The pair met in the rematch on Friday at “ONE Championship 118: Inside the Matrix” at Singapore Indoor Stadium, as an improved Teo pushed “The Panda” all the way to the scorecards in a tightly-contested five-round battle that was spent predominantly on the feet.

However, despite turning in a stronger showing and causing Xiong problems with her cardio and snapping straight jab, Teo couldn’t quite do enough in the stand-up to earn the nod from the three cageside judges, who awarded the Chinese champion a unanimous decision victory.
