BANGKOK, Thailand -- Spectacular! World-ranked Filipino Flyweight Miel Fajardo scored the fastest, most electrifying one-punch knockout win in Thailand boxing, breaking records.
Fortunately records were broken, but not jaws because even though the brave Sarawut Jiamthong, a boxer with seven KO's in seven wins, was brutally lighted out, the 23-year-old warrior quickly recovered, climbing down the ring on his own power, thanks goodness.
Fajardo's win was the televised main event in Brico Santig's Highland Boxing Promotion show at the luxurious SpacePlus Night Club here in Bangkok, Kingdom of Thailand, a show that thrilled fans in attendance, and the ones watching home.
The hugely entertaining card was also broadcast in various platforms for fans outside Thailand, including Facebook and YouTube from the promoter's page, thrilling fans. Many watching, missing the KO performed by Miel Fajardo due to the thunderous speed in which it happened.
Ranked in the world by all 4 major sanctioning bodies, Miel Fajardo (a.k.a. The Silent Assassin), showed fans why he is among the most dangerous flyweights in the planet, smashing as well the TV ratings for Wednesday evening in the Kingdom.
To the delight of his followers, the 22-year-old born in Agusan del Sur not only conquered his opponent, but also the shining, brand new ABF Flyweight belt as well.
"Listening to our Filipino National Anthem inspired me. The bell sounded. I came at him... set him up first. Then, I threw my left.
"It was the first time I do something like this," commented Fajardo to Philboxing after his exciting win.
It was the first time that Fajardo did something like this... because nobody has done something like this.
The KO was so fast, so devastating and thrilling, that dropped jaws inside the SpacePlus Night Club.
Actually, according to the Chic TV clock, the time of the KO was 7 seconds, a riveting record, almost impossible to surpass.
WATCH for yourself Thailand's Chic TV video of the broadcast to draw your conclusions on Fajardo, the fight and the time in which it all unfolded. Are there 7 seconds? Or more? Or Less?
The official boxrec record says 10 seconds, although it clearly was less. Watch for yourself:
Miel Fajardo's future looks bright for 2023, a year in which the quiet, yet confident young boxer should advance his career even further.
For Miel, it seems the sky is the limit.
With his victory, Fajardo (10-1-2, 9 KO's) can now say that he has won all his 5 fights abroad in three different countries, always defeating the local warrior, a feat easily said that done.
Miel's success in his 6-year fighting career this far, is thanks to his own commitment and dedication to boxing, guided by his coach Ericson Asilo of Sampaloc, his manager Filipino-American Monte Flores, and the collaboration of promoter Brico Santig, ABF President Naris Singwancha and the ones who dared to believe in the skills and heart of the young, promising, explosive fighter.
Good job, congratulations to Miel Fajardo and his team, and happy new year from Philboxing, the Filipino boxing portal.
