MANILA, Philippines — Lito Adiwang is unfazed heading into his battle towards Jarred Brooks, who’s broadly considered the most effective strawweight on the planet immediately.
Adiwang (12-3) clashes with Brooks (16-2) in ONE on TNT II on April 15 (Manila time) in a battle that would prove because the Crew Lakay rising star’s popping out social gathering if he pulls off the upset.
However Adiwang isn’t simply in search of a win as he goals for a spectacular efficiency.
“Ideally, I need to end each opponent that I enter the Circle with,” stated Adiwang.
“My childhood hero rising up was the legendary Manny Pacquiao. Pacquiao in his prime had no hesitation. When he noticed an opponent damage, he would go after the end till he obtained it. He’s my idol. He motivated me to begin this profession.”
It’s simpler stated than achieved with Brooks hoping to select up the place he left off after coming off stints in different huge promotions just like the UFC, Bellator and Rizin.
“All I’ve to do is follow the sport plan, and battle to the most effective of my talents,” stated Adiwang.
“I do know what he’s about, his strengths and weaknesses. He’s a very good fighter. However I don’t suppose he’s met a fighter fairly like me within the cage.”
Adiwang is oozing with confidence after getting again on monitor with a second-round knockout over Namiki Kawahara final January.
“I actually consider that I can end him. Each time I enter the Circle, that has at all times been my mindset. I need to end my opponent in any manner that I can, in probably the most decisive manner that I can, as fast as I can. It’s in after which I’m out,” stated Adiwang.
“That’s the best situation. That’s what I’m working in the direction of.”
