Two-sport champion Jonathan Haggerty will put his ONE bantamweight Muay Thai strap on the line as he takes on No. 2 ranked contender Felipe “Demolition Man” Lobo at ONE Fight Night 19 on Prime Video.

The event will take place at the iconic Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand, on Friday, February 16.

Haggerty is the reigning ONE bantamweight Muay Thai and Kickboxing World Champion and former ONE flyweight Muay Thai World title holder.

Hitting his prime

The exciting 26-year-old UK striker is quite possibly hitting his prime right now after crushing longtime divisional ruler Nong-O Hama and capturing the Muay Thai bantamweight title in April last year.

“Demolition Man” Lobo knocked out top-five contender Saemapetch Fairtex at ONE Fight Night 9 on Prime Video to climb up the rankings.
