Jonathan Haggerty anticipates that his fight against Fabricio Andrade will be “good” yet “tough.”


Jonathan Haggerty cannot contain his enthusiasm for his next clash with Fabricio Andrade.

When it makes its triumphant return to the illustrious Lumpinee Boxing Stadium on October 6, ONE Championship will provide one of the most action-packed fight programs of the whole year. The main event of the evening will be Tawanchai competing against Superbon for the world title in the featherweight division of Muay Thai offered by ONE.

Before the Thai superstars go toe-to-toe, Haggerty and Andrade will square off in the ring with the unclaimed ONE bantamweight kickboxing world championship on the line. This fight will take place before the main event.

In an interview with ONE, the incumbent bantamweight Muay Thai world champion, Haggerty, had this to say about his forthcoming showdown versus the bantamweight MMA world champion: “I’m looking forward to it.”

“I have a feeling that this is going to be a terrific battle. A difficult struggle. We can’t wait for it to happen!”

Both Jonathan Haggerty and Fabricio Andrade recently secured great victories in their respective competitions.

To begin, Haggerty hasn’t competed since April 21, when he made his debut at the bantamweight level after moving up from the flyweight category. At ONE Fight Night 9, ‘The General’ stunned the world by knocking out Nong-O Hama in the first round of their fight. Hama was the reigning world champion at the time.

Andrade, too, earned the title of world champion in his most recent bout. The rematch with John Lineker on February 24 was the moment that “Wonder Boy” saw all of his hopes and ambitions come true. The Brazilian fighter was in complete control throughout all four rounds, culminating in a technical knockout victory that earned him the ONE championship.

The winner of the bout between Jonathan Haggerty and Fabricio Andrade will be the first fighter in the history of ONE Championship to hold world titles in not one but two different sports. Prime Video members in North America may watch the event, which takes place on October 6 and features numerous bouts for world titles, live and for free on Prime Video.
