“Pinaghahandaan ko ito. Simula ng January, bumalik ako ng training. Unti-unti bumalik na rin ako sa sparring last January. Marami na rin akong na sparring mga mabibigat na kalaban para sa laban na ito,” said Dumam-ag.

(I am really preparing for this. I have started since January, I slowly returned to the sparring sessions last January. I have already sparred with strong fighters for this fight.)
