Ishige, a representative of Tiger Muay Thai and Bangkok Fight Lab, will make her first appearance since her rousing defeat of Bozhena Antoniyar at ONE: KINGDOM OF HEROES in October.
The TKO win was the fourth stoppage of the 29-year-old’s career, and it kept her 100 percent finishing rate alive.
Her opponent will make her mixed martial arts debut, but the Cambodian Top Team product has a wealth of experience in her country’s national sport.
Srey Pov is a Kun Khmer World Champion with a 91-8-2 record in the martial art, so the native of Phnom Penh, Cambodia, is unlikely to be overawed by competing on the big stage.
In her darkest hour, martial arts gave Rika Ishige a beacon of hope.
