Jeremy Miado wants to test Chinese fighter’s courage before taking the plunge
Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, November 5) – Filipino mixed martial arts fighter Jeremy Miado is hopeful he can get the chance to fight Chinese fighter Banma Duoji to further prove his worth in the strawweight division of the ONE Championship.
âI want to build my name before facing the top five fighters in our division,â Miado said at a recent press conference.
Product Marrok Force has stated that he and Banma are both attackers, which will make the fight more exciting.
“If I have a chance to score a strike, I will try the strike because it brings more points. But my priority is to stick to my game plan of getting more into the hitting,” said Miado, who has revealed he was working to improve his wrestling and Brazilian jiu-jitsu at his training camp in Thailand.
Miado improved his win-loss slate to 10-4 after asserting his mastery over Chinese foe Miao Li Tao in a second round technical knockout victory in their rematch at ONE: NEXTGEN on October 29.
Banma, 22, made his grim debut in the ONE Championship on August 27 after losing by technical knockout to former ONE strawweight champion Dejdamrong, 42. The Chinese fighter is 13-2.
Lakay team star Joshua Pacio is the reigning ONE strawweight champion, while his teammate Lito Adiwang placed in the top five in the strawweight standings.
