WORLD Boxing Council (WBC) Asian Boxing Council Continental super flyweight champion Adrian “Wild Beast” Lerasan of Antipolo City will remain in Thailand until the end of the year.

Lerasan, who captured the continental title in Thailand last week, said he wants to fight one more time in Thailand in December before coming home to the Philippines.

“Hindi pa muna ako uuwi. May laban pa siguro ako dito sa December. ‘Pag tapos na saka pa makauwi (I’m not going home yet. I may have a fight here in December. When it’s over I can go home),” said Lerasan in an interview with The Manila Times.

Lerasan scored a fifth-round knockout victory over Suradech Ruhasiri of Thailand on October 2 to claim the vacant WBC Asian Boxing Council Continental title at the Workpoint Studio in Bang Phun, Thailand.

The 22-year-old Lerasan said he is still resting right now but plans to resume training at the Highland Boxing Gym in Bangkok next week.

Lerasan, who has a ring record of nine wins with two knockouts against four losses, also captured the World Boxing Association Asia super flyweight title after scoring a technical knockout win over Tanes Ongjunta of Thailand in the eighth round on March 1, 2020, also in Bangkok.
