HAGGERTY SHOWCASED HIS MASTERY IN SINGAPORE
11 December 2020 – Singapore: The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), electrified the Singapore Indoor Stadium with another night of thrilling martial arts action. ONE: BIG BANG II, a previously recorded event broadcast globally on Friday, 11 December, featured a series of impressive finishes and performances from the world’s top mixed martial artists, kickboxers, and Muay Thai practitioners.
In the main event, former ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Champion and current #3-ranked contender Jonathan "The General" Haggerty of the United Kingdom dominated Japan's Taiki "Silent Sniper" Naito across three action-packed rounds.
Haggerty showcased his trademark ring IQ, calculating distance and deciphering Naito's rhythm before putting on a striking clinic. "The General" had his complete arsenal on display, including a plethora of feints, thudding leg kicks, and sharp boxing combinations.
A bullet-like right hand down the middle in round one dropped Naito for the count, but the Japanese athlete was able to regain his footing. In the second frame, Haggerty again connected with a haymaker, this time a wild right hook that sent Naito down to the canvas once more. Naito tried his best to turn his luck around in the third stanza, but Haggerty cruised to the final bell. In the end, all three judges scored the bout in favor of Haggerty, who earned the convincing unanimous decision victory.
