After ending 2019 with a flying knee KO win, Jeremy “The Jaguar” Miado will have to wait for his next conquest.
Miado hopes to be included in the upcoming ONE Infinity 1 set for May 29 at the Mall Of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines — the first of the apex events that ONE Championship promised to put out this year.
That is if the COVID-19 pandemic subsides.
“I know that health should be prioritized right now. But if we successfully defeat this virus, I hope to be included on the Manila card on May 29,” Miado said.
“It’s been more than a year since I last competed in front of my countrymen.”
To say that Miado turned things around quickly last year would be an understatement.
Early in 2019, the Marikina City native dropped a TKO loss to Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke at ONE: Call to Greatness, prompting his stock to drop in the weight class.
But he showed he can bounce back from a stinging loss when he knocked out Miao Li Tao at ONE: Age of Dragons last November.
With his confidence back on track, Miado is raring to show his compatriots exactly what he can do.
“I believe that’s the perfect event for me to pick up on what I did in Beijing,” Miado said.
“Now I am focused on training and getting better. If they offer me a slot on May 29, I wouldn’t think twice in saying yes.”
For now, though, all he can do is polish his skills.
“I know we’re facing something big in COVID-19, and all I can do now is stay focused on my goals. I still want to ride on the momentum of that big win last November,” Miado said.
“I’m so excited to show a better version of me, someone who’s more versed in the ground game with new tools and strategies in striking.”
