Liam Harrison, a competitor for the fifth spot in the ONE bantamweight Muay Thai rankings, is not one to sugarcoat his ideas.
The inspiration for ‘The Hitman’s’ continued hard work in the gym, despite the fact that he is currently recovering from an injury to his knee, was discussed in a pretty candid manner by “The Hitman,” who is currently going through the rehabilitation process for his knee injury.
In an interview that was broadcast on LastBSTN, Harrison was quoted as saying, “I need to keep training, keep pushing myself, and keep myself and my body as strong as possible.”
“So when it does come to the next stage, I’m ready to get back into full training,” she said. “I don’t want to be all fat and obese and that.”

Aside from his colorful language, it appears that Harrison does not want to make an excuse out of his injury and return to his prior form in order to become out of shape. He has every intention of doing so.
In the fight for the bantamweight Muay Thai world title that took place at ONE on Prime Video 1 the previous year, the 37-year-old British fighter was defeated in an agonizing fashion by the former champion Nong-O Hama.
To make a bad situation even worse, the injuries he got during that match turned out to be significantly more serious than anyone had anticipated, and he required surgical treatment. Even a money bout with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. was taken away from him because of this.
Harrison claims that he is coming closer and closer to being approved for a full training camp, despite the fact that the path to recovery has been long and at times unpleasant.
In point of fact, the standout member of Bad Company is aiming for a return to Circle or ring before the end of the year.
If everything goes well in Harrison’s tune-up bout, he has his sights set on a confrontation with his fellow countryman and the current king of the bantamweight Muay Thai division in ONE Championship, Jonathan Haggerty, in ONE’s scheduled debut in the United Kingdom at some point in the coming year.
