Team Lakay’s Lito Adiwang remains hopeful the dream fight between him and ONE Muaythai superstar Rodtang Jitmuangnon of Thailand will push through in the future.
This, after ONE announced Jitmuangnon and former multiple Ultimate Fighting Championship flyweight champion Demetrius Johnson will square off in a four-round battle, which is a combination of Muaythai and mixed martial arts on Dec. 5.
The Jitmuangnon-Demetrius bout is highly-anticipated by fans around the world considering that both possess impressive records in their own turf. Johnson is a 13-time world flyweight champion with an MMA record of 30 wins and four losses while Jitmuangnon is a four-time Muaythai world champion with a record of 267 wins, 42 losses, and 10 draws.
Meanwhile, Adiwang said he will focus first on his bout against Hexi Getu of China in the undercard of ONE: Revolution. The fight is ongoing as of press time.
The 27-year-old Adiwang said his Chinese opponent will enter the ONE circle with three winning streaks, which is why his camp must prepare a perfect fight plan.
Adiwang acknow-ledged that Getu’s wrestling, takedowns, and ground control are good but there is one thing that Adiwang noticed on Getu, which is backpedaling a lot.
Known for his explosiveness and striking skills, the Igorot fighter said he is more comfortable against someone who would be on his face and go toe-to-toe with him.
With Team Lakay chair Mark Sangiao closely by his side, Adiwang said they will set a game plan if Getu backpedals most of the time like what he did during his fight against Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke, a known striker like Adiwang. – Harley F. Palangchao
