Team Lakay stalwart Lito Adiwang targets a winning start to the year after ending 2020 with a narrow loss

After a forgettable 2020, Lito “Thunder Kid” Adiwang said he wanted to compete more often in 2021, and it already looks like he’s getting what he asked for. 

The 27-year-old returns to action on Friday, January 22, when he takes on “Wolf Of The Grasslands” Hexigetu at ONE: Unbreakable at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.  

Adiwang will come in motivated since he had his seven-match win streak snapped at ONE: Inside the Matrix III in November courtesy of a close split-decision loss to rising talent Hiroba Minowa

Now, the Team Lakay standout wants to show that the loss was only a minor setback by defeating one of China Top Team’s best athletes.

Hexigetu, the 2015 CMPC Fighter Of The Year, is currently riding a three-match win streak. He holds wins over Ovais “The Enigma” Shah, Filipino karateka Ramon “The Bicolano” Gonzales, and most recently, former ONE strawweight world champion Dejdamrong Sor. Amnuaysirichoke.  

Adiwang might be the only local athlete on the card, but Filipino fans will have a lot to look forward to on that night.  

ONE: Unbreakable will also be headlined by two of the best strikers on the planet. 

In the main event, ONE bantamweight kickboxing world champion Alaverdi “Babyface Killer” Ramazanov defends his strap against No. 2 ranked contender Capitan Petchyindee Academy

It’ll be the first time Ramazanov defends his belt after winning the gold in December 2019. As for Capitan, he’ll make his first appearance in the Circle since scoring a historical six-second knockout of Petchtanong Petchfergus at the end of 2020. 

In the co-main event, Japanese mixed martial arts great Shinya “Tobikan Judan” Aoki takes on American wrestling icon James Nakashima in a lightweight clash that could shake up the division. – Rappler.com
