Lito Adiwang wants to settle unfinished business with Jeremy Miado


Lito “Thunder Kid” Adiwang felt delighted to see compatriot Jeremy “The Jaguar” Miado take the spotlight following an impressive performance in Kuala Lumpur. 

Miado delivered the goods as he knocked out no. 5-ranked strawweight contender “Mini T” Danial Williams in their clash at ONE Fight Night 3: Andrade vs. Lineker at the Axiata Arena in Malaysia.

“Congratulations to Jeremy. I’m happy for him, and I was impressed with how he performed. I thought ‘Mini T’ was the real deal, but he turned Williams into pinikpikan (beat up chicken) in the striking department, so I was quite impressed,” Adiwang said.

“He’s really improved, particularly with his confidence in the striking department. It seems like he was truly focused on this match. His coaches and camp also prepared him well for this match, they really studied how ‘Mini T’ moves. That was an impressive gameplan.”

With that performance, Adiwang grew more excited for his return, as he feels like he’s got unfinished business with Miado.

After all, it was against Miado that Adiwang tore his right ACL, resulting in him going under the knife in May and being sidelined for months.

But with his recovery going faster than expected, “Thunder Kid” hopes to get the next crack at the impressive Miado.

“All eyes are on him now, and I might even come to this fight as an underdog, [but] fights like this excite me. I’m happy for Jeremy and for his performance, and I’m hoping there’s a rematch because I know a lot of people will be waiting for that,” Adiwang said.

But while Adiwang’s happy for Miado, he did send some scathing words toward his compatriot.

“Congratulations, Jeremy, that was a fun fight [to watch]. You found his holes, studied them, and exploited them for the victory. But you only had a very good fight because you weren’t facing me. Against me, you didn’t really look that good,” he said.

“I wish you the best. I wish that you get to train hard and avoid injuries. As for me, I’ll do my best to recover well. If we face [each other] again, I’m sure whoever wins will get a 50k performance bonus.”
