SA bawat tagumpay, may babaeng pinaglalaanan ang kampeon.

Ngunit, para kay Pinoy MMA fighter Jeremy ‘The Jagura’ Miado, ang namayapang ama ang inspirasyon sa kanyang patuloy na paglaban sa hamon ng buhay at sa nakakamit na tagumpay.

“The most important influence in my childhood was my father. My dad was my hero because he’s someone I looked up to every single day,” pahayag ni Miado.

Mismong ang ama ang nagturo kay Miado sa kaagahan ng kanyang career bilang isang veteranong trainor sa lalawigan sa Albay.

Lumaki siya opayo at habilin ng ama na ayon kay Miado ang ginagamit niya para malagpsan ang lahat ng pagsubok sa buhay at career.

Sa kanyang paglusong sa boxing, naging idolo niya ang tagumpay ni Manny Pacquiao.

Manny Pacquiao was my idol. I wanted to be just like him when I was a teenager. He was so amazing during his prime as a boxer,” aniya.

“I knew I had to do something to help out, anything. I could not watch my family go through hardship, so I knew it was up to me to change our situation,” ayon kay Miado, patungkol sa hiurap ng buhay na pinagdaanan ng pamilya.

Ayon kay Miado, minsan na rin siyang sinabihan ng ama na mag-aral at piliin ang ibang career kesya sa boxing.

“I guess it’s normal for parents to be worried because what we do is so physical. But I thank him for respecting my decision to drop out and put my focus on martial arts,” aniya.

“Even though he didn’t agree with me, my father knew that I was doing it for the family.”

Sa kanyang career, nagpamals ng katatagan ni Miado tangan ang 32 panalo at dalawang kabiguan bilang amateur.

Dumans dins iya ng hirap sa pakikipagsapalan bunsod nang kawalan ng manager.

“When I decided to move to Manila because there were a lot more opportunities, I discovered mixed martial arts. It enticed me to try it and make a career out of it,” pahayag ni Miado.

Unti-unti nakilala siya sa MMA community at napatanyuag nang maitala ang kahanga-hangang knockout win kontra sa dating walang tal;ong si ONE Strawweight World Champion Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke sa ONE: IRON WILL noong Marso.

Ginapi rin ng 26-anyos Filipino striker si China’s Peng Xue Wen via second-round stoppage sa ONE: CONQUEST OF CHAMPIONS sa MOA Arena.

“I drew strength from him for that fight. He supported me in this journey. The only thing that I could do at that moment was to repay his support with a victory,” aniya.
