Jonathan Haggerty is eager to square off against any challenger that ONE Championship has to offer.
In January of 2019, Haggerty competed for the first time in ONE Championship. Since that time, he has competed against some of the most accomplished Muay Thai fighters in the promotion, including as Rodtang Jitmuangnon, Nong-O Hama, and Sam-A Gaiyanghadao.
At the age of 26, ‘The General’ has no intention of becoming selective in his choice of opponents moving ahead.
The ONE bantamweight Muay Thai world champion has said the following regarding his desire to fight anyone during an interview with the promotion:
“I’m just there to fight whoever they put in front of me,” he said. “I don’t care.”
Jonathan Haggerty is a former ONE flyweight Muay Thai world champion who held a record of 4-2 in the division during his time competing in the division. Following his victory over Vladimir Kuzmin in a catchweight match, Haggerty officially stepped up to the bantamweight division, which set him up for a fight for the world title against Nong-O in April of this year.
The majority of Muay Thai fans anticipated that Nong-O would easily triumph over the Londoner. Instead, it was the latter who dominated the fight from the beginning to the end, eventually knocking out their opponent in the first round.
The current champion of the bantamweight division in Muay Thai is set to compete in another superfight later on in this year.
On October 6, Jonathan Haggerty will compete against Fabricio Andrade, the reigning world champion in bantamweight MMA, for the unclaimed title of bantamweight kickboxing world champion. One of the world-class fighters is going to end up being a world champion in two different sports, regardless of how the battle turns out.
The fight between Haggerty and Andrade is slated to take place during ONE Fight Night 15, which will take place at the illustrious Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand. Fans in North America who have an active subscription to Amazon Prime Video will be able to see the October 6 card live and for free during primetime in the United States.
