The Thunder Kid put in a show and redeemed himself against a fighter he lost to due to a knee injury 19 months ago.
The Thailand-based Lito Adiwang scored a unanimous win over Jeremy “The Jaguar” Miado in their rematch fight at ONE Ggiht Night 16 last Saturday at the historic Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.
Adiang showed how superb his striking skill was with a solid left hook and pinpoint knees in the opening round.
Miado, however, found his rhythm in the next rounds as he gave Asdiawng a fight including a cut under the Thunder Kid’s right eye.
Despite the cut, Adiwang fought on and used his leg kicks to earn more points until the bell,
“You saw my fights and I ended my fights quickly, but I’m happy that I got this finally,” said Adiwang after the referee declared him the winner.
He added: “This fight is for all the fans who wanted to see the rematch. I think we showed that this is the ending and I won that fight.”
It was the second straight loss for Miado, who fell to 12-6.
In the main event, ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai World Champion Jonathan “The General” Haggerty earned the distinction of being called a two-sport champion after winning the kickboxing belt in the main event and denied the same from MMA kingpin, Fabricio “Wonder Boy” Andrade.
He actually needed only two rounds when he connected with a head kick that staggered Andrade, an opportunity for Haggerty to end the fight.
With a wobbling Andrade, Haggerty used a barrage of punches that floored the Brazilian forcing referee Olivier Coste to stop the fight at the 1:57 mark of the second round.
In the co-main event, Tye Ruotolo outclassed Magomed Abdulkadirov to take a unanimous decision victory and claim the inaugural ONE Welterweight Submission Grappling World Title. Pigeon Lobien
