After Jonathan Haggerty pulled off a monumental victory over Sam-A Gaiyanghadao to win the ONE Championship Flyweight Muay Thai World title in Jakarta last Friday, he was quick to call out ‘The Ironman’ Rodtang fort his first title defence.
Yesterday, at ‘Warriors of Light‘ in Bangkok, Rodtang stopped Sok Thy with a barrage of leg kicks, eventually crumbling the Cambodian to take the win in the second round. After the fight, Rodtang was asked what he made of the newly-crowned champion Haggerty‘s call-out.
With strong performances from Savvas Michael also at yesterday’s event, the ONE Super Series Muay Thai flyweight division is an exciting prospect for fight fans all over the world.
