Roel “Akiyama” Rosauro knows that if he wants to get the elusive win in ONE Championship, he is going to have to stick to his guns. 

That is exactly what he intends to do when he takes on Yohan “The Iceman” Mulia Legowo at ONE: A NEW TOMORROW this Friday, 10 January, at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand. 

With five of Legowo’s wins coming from submissions, the 31-year-old prefers to make this a striking contest - a situation that would certainly favor him more. 

“I am aware of his ground game, most of his wins came from submission, that’s why I really worked on my ground game for this match,” Rosauro said. 

“But I’ll try to keep this match standing because I know that’s where my advantage is. That will be my game plan this Friday, to strike and to knock him out.”

In the case that it hits the ground though, the pride of Camotes, Cebu promises not to look like a fish out of the water.

“I know it won’t be an easy fight. Legowo won’t be a pushover cause we’re both hungry for a win. That’s why I gave everything during my preparation for this,” Rosauro said. 

“I will go toe-to-toe with him wherever this match goes. I am ready and I am excited for this match.”

After going 0-2 since starting in The Home Of Martial Arts, Rosauro understands that he might not get a chance after this. 

So fans can expect no less than a breakout performance from the Filipino featherweight. 

“This is such a crucial match for me. I know I can’t afford another loss and that’s why I’ll give everything in this match. This is the perfect opportunity for me to get more opportunities moving forward,” Rosauro said. 

“I am ready. You can expect to see a determined Roel Rosauro this Friday.”

Rosauro and Legowo open ONE Championship’s inaugural 2020 show at ONE: A NEW TOMORROW at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand this Friday, 10 January.
