Fabricio Andrade is set to make history in the ONE Bantamweight Kickboxing World Title fight. Read about his journey and his plans to secure the kickboxing belt.
Fabricio Andrade, the ONE Bantamweight MMA World Champion, is set to break new ground in U.S. primetime on Friday, October 6. In an exciting matchup, Andrade, also known as ‘Wonder Boy,’ will face Jonathan Haggerty for the vacant ONE Bantamweight Kickboxing World Title at ONE Fight Night 15 on Prime Video.
Andrade has the opportunity to become the first mixed martial artist in ONE to cross over and win gold in another sport. Although this may seem like a new venture for the Brazilian, it is actually a delayed one. Before dedicating himself fully to MMA, Andrade had a kickboxing contract and had shown interest in the sport. However, due to his focus on his MMA career, the opportunity did not materialize.
Andrade has an impressive professional striking record of 40-3, making him a formidable opponent in the kickboxing ring. His last four wins have all come via strikes, showcasing his punishing capabilities on his feet. With his undefeated record in seven MMA outings and his confidence at an all-time high, Andrade is eager to etch his name in the record books.
Becoming a Kickboxing Champion is a goal that Andrade has yet to achieve in his career. He sees this fight as an opportunity to make history and become a World Champion in two sports. Andrade acknowledges that the Muay Thai belt is also available, but his focus is solely on the kickboxing belt for now.
While Andrade respects his opponent, Jonathan Haggerty , he believes he has identified weaknesses that he can exploit. Haggerty is known for his technical skills and ability to capitalize on his opponent’s mistakes. However, Andrade notes that Haggerty’s weakness lies in his ability to absorb blows. Andrade plans to use this weakness to his advantage and secure a victory.
This matchup takes place outside of Haggerty’s usual Muay Thai comfort zone, but Andrade believes his past experience in kickboxing will give him the edge. He has competed in numerous kickboxing bouts and has continued to train his striking skills. Andrade is confident in his power and aggressiveness, which he believes will lead to a knockout victory.
In summary, Fabricio Andrade is ready to make history in the ONE Bantamweight Kickboxing World Title fight. He aims to become the first athlete in ONE to win gold in both MMA and kickboxing. With his impressive striking record and confidence, Andrade is determined to secure the kickboxing belt and etch his name in the record books.
