Filipino mixed martial arts fighter Jeremy Miado is prepared to continue racking up stunning victories for as long as it takes to earn a crack at the ONE strawweight world title once held by Johua Pacio.
On June 9, the Filipino star will look to extend his four-fight winning streak when he takes on undefeated promotional newcomer Mansur Malachief live in United States primetime from the iconic Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.
Miado’s streak is impressive not only because he has been beating the world’s top strawweight contenders, but also because he has earned a finish in each of those victories.
Most recently, the 30-year-old striking specialist took out fan favorite Daniel William, scoring a sensational third-round knockout on the Australian in October.
After that performance – arguably the best of his career – “The Jaguar” became emotional when he thought about the hard work he put into preparing for such a dangerous opponent.
Miado recalled: “I was just thinking about all the sacrifices in training and, of course, we all know Danial Williams is a big name. He was on a good run. So, I believed it was a great win, and I was overwhelmed by my emotions just thinking that everything I worked hard for was worth it.”
In that fight, Miado largely domina-ted Williams with his superior stand-up.
He is now preparing for a talented takedown artist in Malachiev. However, Miado believes the gains he’s made in his wrestling defense and get-up game will allow him to freely employ his world-class striking.
“I wasn’t afraid to throw strikes against Williams because I know that my takedown defense is solid should he try to take me down. If (Malachiev) ever gets me down, I know I can get back up and pick him off with my striking,” the Filipino fighter said. – ONE release
