Jenelyn Olsim returns at ONE 158

Jenelyn Olsim is ready to go back to the victory column as she makes her way back into the circle.

Olsim will face Brazilian boxer Julie Mezabarba at ONE 158: Pacio vs. Brooks on June 3. The blockbuster event will be televised live from the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

A member of the renowned Lakay Stabilization Team, Olsim is one of the most comprehensive fighters in the atomweight division, having competed in mixed martial arts, Muay Thai and kickboxing.

The Filipino star had a brilliant start to 2021 when she knocked out Brazilian artist Maira Mazar in March. She then followed up with a highly unanimous decision victory over Bi Nguyen in August.

In an interview with ONE Championship, Olsim said she doesn’t let her chance against Mezabarba go to waste.

“Every day is a blessing because it allows us to refocus on what matters and what drives us to keep going. Make the most of this blessing,” she said.

Mezabarba, however, doesn’t push.

The 29-year-old from Rio de Janeiro unanimously won against former championship contender Mei Yamaguchi on her record. That win marked her ONE Championship debut in September 2021.

However, before jumping into the next round, Olsim will represent the Philippines for the first time in Vovinam at the 2021 Southeast Asian Games in Vietnam.


Jenelyn Olsim could see her stock rise at ONE 158

Jenelyn Olsim looks set to become a star when she makes the ONE Championship main line-up in 2021.

She submitted to Mazar in March and then dominated Nguyen in August for a unanimous decision. However, her run came to an end when she lost to Ritu Phogat in the semifinals of the ONE Atomeweight World Grand Prix in October.

Olsim, however, was not even supposed to be in the tournament. She briefly joined the Phogat War after Japanese star Itsuki Hirata withdrew due to illness.

However, Olsim clearly put the loss behind him. A win for the 25-year-old is sure to push her stock to atom.

“Thank you everyone for your trust and support, you have inspired me. I will use this moment to fight with all my heart! ”

Olsim already has a tradition in the striking arts and competing in a new sport at the SEA Games could very well add to her impressive arsenal.
