In a touching message accompanied by a photo of him embracing his father Jhanlo said:

“The only thought that gives me mental strength is that you’re always there to support me whatever the situation comes. Thank you Dad for always being there for me in ups and downs. All my dreams could not have (been) accomplished if you were not beside me. The Best Coach/Dad.”

Mark Sangiao has been bringing fighters to compete on ONE Championship cards since the inaugural event in 2011. But this was the first time cornering his son and it must have been an emotional moment for both men.

The teenager has a bright future ahead of him and this definitely won’t be the last time we see this father / son team celebrating together.
