TEAM Lakay phenom Lito “Thunder Kid” Adiwang is a huge fan of One Super Series and the former Warrior Series product admitted he would love to test his mettle against the world’s best striking talents.
Adiwang’s aggressive and explosive offensive style would no doubt hold up well against the world’s top Muay fighters and kickboxers and tops in his radar is reigning flyweight muay world champion Rodtang “The Iron Man” Jitmuangnon.
The fiery Thai warrior is known for his incredible speed and thunderous knockout power and Adiwang would want nothing more than to turn a fantasy matchup between “Thunder Kid” and “The Iron Man” into reality.
“I love fantasy matchups. Me against Rodtang shouldn’t just be a fantasy, it should be a reality. I respect Rodtang a lot. I love the way he fights and the energy that he brings into the arena. I really respect him as a true fighter and a real champion,” Adiwang said.
Rodtang has emerged as one of the most exciting martial arts superstars in Asia since his debut in the world’s premier striking martial arts league. He remains unbeaten in the Super Series action with eight thrilling victories on his resume.
Adiwang has studied Rodtang’s style extensively and believes he has a good grasp on the Thai action star’s strengths and weaknesses.
“His strength is in his powerful strikes. He has powerful kicks and punches, and has that demolition style. He will come forward and put the pressure on his opponent, looking to destroy them with powerful combinations,” Adiwang said.
If the opportunity to face Rodtang would arise, Adiwang would jump all over the chance.
“My dream is to fight the best of the best and become a champion and Rodtang is one of the fighters on my shortlist to test myself against,” he said. “If we fight in Muay, I know it’s going to be a good show. Of course I will do my best to get the victory.”
