Liam Harrison lost via leg kick TKO at ONE on Prime Video 1 against ONE bantamweight Muay Thai world champion Nong-O Gaiyanghadao. The British-born striker was sad and frustrated he was unable to continue further.

Unfortunately, due to a heavy leg kick onslaught from Nong-O, Harrison's knee gave way in the very first round. After decades of Muay Thai and months of training, 'The Hitman' said he is very frustrated with this result.

Sharing his thoughts on Instagram, Harrison said:

"Can’t describe how f*ckin frustrated I am …all that hard work for my knee to go in round 1. Honestly feel like after years of hard work iv put in I deserve way better than this. Don’t just feel sorry for myself but the crowd the fans and Nong O all deserved better than this too."

'The Hitman' added that he would have preferred to get further in the fight and get KO'd rather than this result:

"I’m frustrated and heartbroken, I’d have preferred to get knocked spark out than my knee just give way like this….thanks for the messages and support it won’t end here for me I’ll be back."

Fans and pundits are wishing Liam Harrison well and a speedy recovery.
