Jeremy “The Jaguar” Miado looks to continue his winning ways in his return to the ONE Championship Circle and barge into the rankings.
His next fight says this won’t come easy. Standing in his way is the dangerous multi-sport knockout artist “Mini-T” Danial Williams, who is getting his wish.
The two are scheduled to fight in a three-round strawweight bout at ONE Fight Night 3 set on October 22, 2022 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
The fight has been brewing for months after Williams challenged the Marrok Force MMA standout in one of his post-fight press interviews.
“Guys like Jeremy Miado excite me,” Williams said in an earlier interview. “I just like his style. I’m here to put on a show for the fans. The fans want to see action. I’m here to put on a show for the fans, and Miado is going to be the guy who’s going to give it to me.”
Miado has won three straight bouts, including back-to-back impressive finishes over Miao Li Tao where he pulverized the Chinese man with a flying knee in their first meeting, and followed it up with a standing KO win in their second faceoff.
His last match left a lot to be desired as it ended with an injury to compatriot Lito Adiwang, but a win is still a win for Miado.
It’s likely that a win could see him move back to the strawweight rankings.
The same rankings is where Williams wants to be as he’s also on a three-fight winning streak in mixed martial arts. His latest outing was an impressive one, flattening Zelang Zhaxi with a right cross to keep his winning ways.
Miado, for his part, should be looking for an impressive win as he becomes the first Filipino to compete in a Prime Video card that will air live on US primetime. Opportunities like this does not come too often. Impressing the American fans would definitely be a huge boost for his stock.
The duo will be joining a stacked card headlined by the battle between two KO artists in ONE Bantamweight World Champion John “Hands of Stone” Lineker and Fabrico “Wonder Boy” Andrade.
