    LITO Adiwang had reservations in agreeing to an all-Filipino fight against Jeremy Miado at One X on March 26.

    The 28-year-old Filipino, a Team Lakay fighter, has taken pride in hoisting the country's flag high and proud in the promotion.

    "We need to respect whoever they give us and I'm very proud that Filipino fighters are representing the Philippines in the biggest event of one," he said.

    Adiwang is pumped to test his skills against a resurgent Miado, who has won his last two fights in an emphatic fashion and has been on a rise in the strawweight division.

    "He's a good athlete also and maganda rin na kami pa ang pinagharap. And I'm sure kung sino ang mananalo sa amin, aangat yan sa [strawweight] rankings," he said.
