Boost / Zaba, the Malaysian representative, goes up against Fate / Khan of Pakistan. Zaba has made his way to the finals from the loser’s bracket. Regardless, this was a chance for both of them to get glory in Tekken 7, and it came down to this at the Penang Esports Festival 2019.
Zaba’s Miguel went up against Khan’s Geese in a hard fought series. Zaba broke out Paul for what would be Khan’s matchpoint. Khan keeps Geese, and snags a Perfect, and that just spelled the end for Zaba’s run. While the results may say 3-0, the Malaysian hopeful put up a fight and tried to claw his way back.
This tournament sees RM10,000 distributed to the place holders. While Zaba may not place here today, he’ll be representing Malaysia at the upcoming SEA Games 2019, where Tekken 7 is a medaled event.
Congratulations once more to Khan!
