This fight will take place at Lumpinee Boxing Stadium, the venue where he won not one but two ONE world championships.
The reigning world champion is typically swamped with callouts from interested competitors who are eager to challenge them. Jonathan Haggerty, on the other hand, was the one who recognized his rival in this particular instance.
There is never a moment when “The General” is not prepared. At ONE Fight Night 19, which will be shown on Prime Video on February 16, what do you think will happen with his defense of his world title against Felipe Lobo?
Jonathan Haggerty is quoted as saying, “It is not every day that the champion is calling out the top contender.”
Both Haggerty and Lobo have been known to tease one another whenever they come into contact with one another, which has resulted in a considerable accumulation of hostility between the two of them. On Friday evening, they will finally have the chance to settle their differences when they meet inside the renowned Mecca of Muay Thai in Bangkok during their scheduled meeting.
