Nong-O Gaiyanghadao impressed with Liam Harrison’s veteran comeback against Muangthai
Five-time reigning Muay Thai Bantamweight World Champion Nong-O Gaiyanghadao was impressed by Liam Harrison’s warrior spirit in his last fight against Muangthai PK Saenchai last April at ONE 156.
‘The Hitman’ went blow for blow and blow for blow with the Thai phenomenon. After an exhilarating first round that featured a total of five knockdowns in less than three minutes of action, Harrison claimed victory with the third knockdown to secure a world title opportunity against Nong-O.
The champion is thrilled to face off against a formidable veteran, whom he holds in high esteem. Praising the durability shown in Harrison’s latest performance, the Thai fighter told ONE Championship:
“Liam could come back [after being knocked down twice by Muangthai] because he has more experience. He could read the game better than Muangthai. He knew Muangthai already had two knockdowns and he would rush to seal the deal. But Liam is a veteran. When he was [being] counted, he would not rush to get up. He waited to recover and get up strong.
Nong-O is on a six-fight winning streak and hopes to extend it to seven by annihilating “The Hitman” in a battle of wills. Expect this fight between two of the most dangerous Muay Thai attackers in the world to be the talk of the town for many years to come.
