Seeing longtime combat sports veterans turning back the clock is always an awesome sight to see and that is exactly what ONE Muay Thai star Liam Harrison hopes to achieve in his next fight.

'Hitman' will compete at ONE 167 on June 7 inside the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand against Japanese sensation Katsuki Kitano in a bantamweight Muay Thai bout.

In an interview with ONE Championship, Liam Harrison stated just how ready he is to put away his much younger counterpart:

"He's not a mug, and he's got quite a few good weapons, but I'm going to come, and I'm going to try and blast him straight out of there."

Harrison has been sidelined for the better part of the past two years due to a multitude of injuries and has been working overtime to get back into fighting shape.

As for Kitano, the Seishikai Gym product gave fans a taste of his potential when he dominated Dutch-Turkish star Halil Kutukcu in his promotional debut in Oct. 2023 at ONE Friday Fights 38.

Traveling all over the world to chisel out one of the most impressive resumes in the world of Muay Thai, 38-year-old Liam Harrison is reminding fans not to worry about him reinjuring himself.

In an interview with ONE Championship, the Bad Company fighter explained how the rigors of training camp have prepared him for his return:

"Whenever I train, I make sure it's hard. So I'm in the f*cking depths of hell when I'm training all the time, I really go to town when I'm training, so it's not gonna be like I'm gonna forget how hard a fight is."

ONE 167 will air live and for free to all Prime Video subscribers in the United States and Canada.
