MANILA, Philippines—The return of Lito Adiwang will have to wait.

The Filipino boomer has pulled out of ONE Fight Night 6: Superbon vs. Allazov to continue his recovery from an ACL injury.

Adiwang was originally set to face Mansur Malachiev on January 14 at Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand.

“My mind was 1000% ready for battle but all of a sudden, my knee didn’t cooperate and it got worse when I tried to push hard to train. On the advice of the doctor, I will give it some time to recover and continue therapy to strengthen it,” Adiwang said.

“It hurts to withdraw but I need to think for the best and look at the big picture,” he added.

The Team Lakay star injured his knee in March against fellow Filipino Jeremy Miado at ONE X.

According to the doctor’s advice, Adiwang still needs to rest for another two months.
