‘The Sniper’ Stephen Loman of the Philippines, who holds the No. 2 spot in the bantamweight category of the ONE Championship and competes in mixed martial arts, is prepared to wait patiently as divisional monarch Fabricio ‘Wonder Boy’ Andrade faces his next opponent.
Andrade is scheduled to compete against ‘The General’ Jonathan Haggerty in a highly anticipated crossover fight for the vacant ONE bantamweight kickboxing championship. Haggerty is the current defending ONE bantamweight Muay Thai world champion.
At ONE Fight Night 15, two of the world’s best fighters will go head to head live on Prime Video. On Friday, October 6, the event will be telecast live from the illustrious Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, which is located in Thailand.
In a recent interview with ONE Championship, Loman discussed what he believes to be Haggerty’s most dangerous weapon, and he recommended that Andrade keep an eye out for it.
“The Sniper” said the following:
“Haggerty’s striking game is one of the best in the world, but his push kicks are his best weapons. His striking game is one of the best in the world.” He is really capable in this area.”
In point of fact, one need to be wary of Haggerty’s teeps.
After Andrade is finished with his kickboxing antics, Loman is certain that ‘Wonder Boy’ will return to mixed martial arts combat to defend his belt, with ‘The Sniper’ being technically the next in line.
In the meanwhile, Loman will fight “Hands of Stone” John Lineker, a former bantamweight champion, at ONE Fight Night 14: Stamp vs. Ham, which will be broadcast on Prime Video. This fight will be Loman’s bid to earn a crack at the world championship.
On Friday, September 29, this event will take place at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, and it will be available to fans in the United States and Canada for free via live streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
