The Fil-Am fighter’s journey from the streets of Fremont to the global stage of professional fighting is one fueled by passion and determination.

Born and raised in the Bay Area, Climaco’s upbringing was shaped by the influences of his Filipino heritage and a love for martial arts, nurtured by the iconic films that captured his imagination from a young age.

“We both started training together. I was 14 and he was 11. He’s gone on to be a pro MMA fighter, and I’m a pro Muay Thai fighter,” shared Climaco, as told by ONE.

Inspired by the cinematic heroes he idolized and the legendary success of Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao, Climaco embarked on a journey to fulfill his own potential in the world of combat sports.

For Climaco, stepping into the ring on May 3 represents more than just a chance to showcase his skills—it’s a moment to honor his heritage and make a statement on the international stage.

The anticipation builds for his debut at ONE Fight Night 22, and Climaco remains focused and eager to seize the moment, ready to take his career to new heights in pursuit of his dreams.
