‘Great fighter’ is what Jonathan Haggerty has to say about Lobo. “Lobo deserves it.” A chance to win the ONE Championship gold has been gained by Felipe Lobo.

The Brazilian standout Felipe Lobo has earned the opportunity to compete for the ONE bantamweight Muay Thai world championship, according to Jonathan Haggerty, who acknowledges Lobo’s outstanding performance.

A main event title fight between Lobo and “The General” is scheduled to take place at the illustrious Lumpinee Boxing Stadium on Friday, February 16. ‘The Demolition Man’ earned his opportunity to compete for Haggerty’s gold in the art of eight limbs by knocking out Saemapetch Fairtex in the third round of their fight at ONE Fight Night 9 in April.

Jonathan Haggerty admitted that Lobo’s impressive upset against Saemapetch was more than enough to merit a confrontation between the two inside Bangkok’s Mecca of Muay Thai. This was in reference to the highly anticipated fight that is going to take place between the two fighters.

In a recent interview with ONE Championship, Haggerty stated that Lobo is deserving of the victory. It was he that halted Saemapetch. He is a very skilled fighter. The fighter’s sense of respect is present in that situation.
The victories that Felipe Lobo has won inside the Circle include victories over Yodpanomrung and Rodlek PK Saenchai, in addition to the victory that he has won over Saemapetch.

Jonathan Haggerty declares that the time for talking is over

Despite the fact that Jonathan Haggerty may have a healthy regard for Felipe Lobo as a fighter, there is no doubt that the two are in love with one another.

The opportunity to finally walk inside the ring with Lobo and let their fists do the talking will be brought to ‘The General’ at ONE Fight Night 19, which he will be looking forward to.

In a prior interview with the South China Morning Post, Haggerty stated, “There is always this back and forth between me and him, he has always called me out, and I have always called him out.””And do you realize that the time is now? Let’s stop talking now. There was a lot of fighting chatter.
