Ever since he made his comeback to the world of competition in 2023, Lito Adiwang has been harboring the dreams of ascending to the pinnacle of the strawweight class.
He will attempt to keep his flawless return going by winning a third consecutive victory on the international stage of the promotion at ONE Fight Night 19, which will take place in Hong Kong.
After gaining consecutive victories over Adrian Mattheis and Jeremy Miado, Adiwang has been extremely forthright about the fact that the top-five rankings were his primary aim. He has stated this on multiple occasions.
Instead, ‘Thunder Kid’ will face Danial Williams, a fan favorite who will confront him with a one-of-a-kind battle due to the fact that he has competed against some of the best strikers in the world.
Despite the fact that Williams is not the opponent that Lito Adiwang was initially searching for, Adiwang stated in an interview with The MMA Superfan that he does not underestimate Williams:
“Despite the fact that I had a desire to compete against a ranked fighter in the top five, the opponent that they assigned me to face is not your typical fighter. He competed against all of the best strikers, beginning with Rodtang and ending with Superlek and Di Bella.
Lito Adiwang vs. Danial Williams has fireworks written all over it
Despite the fact that Lito Adiwang did not get the top-five opponent that he was looking for, he still has a lot to learn from defeating Danial Williams on February 16.
When the fight was announced for the next fight night event of ONE Championship, which will take place at the illustrious Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand, fans were sure to start talking about it from the moment it was announced.
When they do the walk, both of the contestants have a fantastic reputation for leaving everything they have within the ring or the circle with their opponents.
Fans are in for a real treat when these two men compete against each other for the very first time, and the amount of expectation that exists between them makes it possible for either of them to make a significant statement with their game.
In the United States, during primetime, ONE Fight Night 19 will be broadcast live and free of charge to viewers in North America who have an active subscription to Prime Video.
