Jonathan Haggerty Conquers Kickboxing

Jonathan Haggerty, the reigning ONE bantamweight Muay Thai champion, showcased his skills in a different discipline at ONE Fight Night 16. Competing in the main event against MMA champ Fabricio Andrade, Haggerty emerged victorious and claimed the kickboxing championship title. The thrilling fight took place at the iconic Lumpinee Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.

In the second round, Haggerty unleashed a relentless barrage of strikes on Andrade, ultimately knocking him out with a powerful right hand. The referee wasted no time in stopping the fight, granting Haggerty the knockout victory and his second title in ONE Championship.

A Third Title in Sight

Following his impressive win, Haggerty wasted no time in expressing his desire for a third title. He called out Andrade, challenging him for the MMA championship belt. Haggerty’s transition to mixed martial arts has been a topic of discussion for quite some time, and now it seems he is ready to make the leap.

Haggerty’s performance not only earned him the kickboxing title but also two $50,000 Performance bonuses. Speaking about his victory, Haggerty expressed his elation and emphasized the hard work and dedication that led him to this moment.

The Quest for History

While a third title is undoubtedly a challenging feat, Haggerty has his sights set on making history.

If Haggerty can accomplish this remarkable feat, he will etch his name in the history books.

Regardless of the outcome, Haggerty’s Muay Thai and kickboxing belts will continue to attract worthy contenders eager to challenge his dominance.
