Liam Harrison is on the hunt for ONE gold, but to get a shot at ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai World Champion Nong-O Gaiyanghadao, he must first defeat Muangthai PK.Saenchai at ONE: Eersel vs. Sadikovic, on Friday, 22 April, at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. 

Harrison, known as “Hitman,” is on a four-fight winning streak, and he most recently defeated Brayan Matias via decision in October. He last graced the ONE Circle with his presence back in 2020, when he scored a first-round KO on Mohammed Bin Mahmoud. 

The British athlete has fought nearly 120 times and has taken home 89 wins, with almost half of those coming via knockout. As a dangerous and tricky opponent, Harrison has defeated the likes of Mehdi Zatout, Malaipet Sasiprapa, and Tetsuya Yamato.

At one point in his career, save for one draw, the British star accomplished a 20-fight run of victories, and at another, he scored five KO/TKO wins in a row. 

“Back on the biggest stage [for] ONE Championship in an absolutely massive fight,” Harrison posted excitedly on Instagram. 

“Hitman” has been training in Muay Thai for two-thirds of his life, but in Muangthai, he'll be facing a three-time Muay Thai World Champion. 

Also known as “Elbow Zombie,” Muangthai has fought close to 250 times and won 200 of those bouts. So far in ONE, he has earned a 3-0 record, most recently defeating Brice Delval, and his vicious elbows have brought the former Lumpinee Stadium champion 14 KOs alone.

Harrison must be wary of the Thai fighter’s sharpest weapons, but he has a few tricks up his sleeve. 

The former WBC and WMC Muay Thai champion is famous for his high-pressure style and tricky footwork, and he has brought home wins against many technical fighters before. 

Whoever scores the W will likely get the next chance to step into the Circle with Nong-O.  

Stay tuned for more news about ONE: Eersel vs. Sadikovic, which airs live on Friday, 22 April, from the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
