ONE Championship: Mark Fairtex Abelardo out to showcase Filipino fighting spirit in Bangkok

Mark "Tyson" Fairtex Abelardo might have been far away from the Philippines for the longest time, but he keeps his mother country close to his heart.   On Saturday, 16 February, he will have the chance to make an impression to his Filipino kababayans when he takes on undefeated bantamweight Daichi Takenaka on the undercard of ONE: CLASH OF LEGENDS, which emanates from the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand.   "I feel more than ready to finally showcase my skill on the global stage,” said Abelardo, who signed a ONE Championship contract following his victory at ONE Warrior Series 3 in October.   “This is what I worked and trained hard for all my life, and I will make sure to make the most out of this moment.”   Born to Filipino parents in Auckland, New Zealand, "Tyson" is currently based in Pattaya, Thailand, where he hones his craft at the Fairtex Training Center.   While he has moved around the Asia Pacific for most of his adulthood, Abelardo noted that the Filipino warrior spirit is not lost on him, and it’s something that he vows to showcase in Bangkok.   "I am based in Thailand, but I will be out to show the fans out there that I possess the Filipino fighting spirit that Pinoys are known for,” he said. “I proudly represent the Philippines in ONE Championship."   The 27-year-old, however, will have his hands full against Takenaka, who is yet to taste defeat in his professional career.
