Jonathan Haggerty, the two-sport king, is gearing up for a monumental showdown on the global stage. At ONE 168: Denver, he will defend his Muay Thai throne against Superlek Kiatmoo9, the last man to defeat him outside of ONE Championship. The Englishman is laser-focused on this fight, considering it the most challenging of his career.

The Superlek Challenge

Superlek, the flyweight kickboxing world champion, poses a significant threat. Haggerty acknowledges that Superlek is even tougher than fighters like Liam Harrison and Nico Carrillo. The English fighter’s priority is revenge and redemption, and he aims to get past Superlek before entertaining thoughts of an all-English contest with Carrillo or Harrison.

“For now, I’m focused on Superlek. I’m gonna fight him first. I believe he’s the hardest fighter I need to prepare for.”

“He’s way above Liam Harrison and Nico Carrillo. So I feel once I can get past him, let’s get it on Nico Carrillo,” Haggerty added.

Potential Exciting Matchups for Jonathan Haggerty

While Jonathan Haggerty remains focused on Superlek, fans can’t help but speculate about other potential matchups. Two names stand out:

  1. Nico Carrillo: A clash between Haggerty and Carrillo would be electric. Youth versus experience, action-packed styles—fireworks guaranteed.
  2. Liam Harrison: An England vs. Scotland showdown against the “King of the North” could also be epic. Carrillo has been calling for a shot at Haggerty, and both fighters seem open to the challenge. But first, Haggerty must clear the Superlek hurdle.

As the countdown to ONE 168: Denver begins, fight fans eagerly await this thrilling battle. Jonathan Haggerty’s determination to overcome Superlek and cement his legacy as a true warrior adds to the excitement. Stay tuned for what promises to be an unforgettable clash in the Circle!
