Fans all over the world are looking forward to seeing ONE Championship's best athletes compete at ONE 167 on June 7. Muay Thai star Liam Harrison will be part of that stacked event.

His opponent will be Japanese star Katsuki Kitano. As fans get ready to witness a bantamweight Muay Thai bout for the ages, even Harrison's fellow ONE athletes are excited to see that bout.

One such name is Filipino strawweight MMA star Lito Adiwang, who bared his excitement in an interview with ONE Championship:

"While I want him to win and get another knockout, as a fan, I also don't want to see him get hit as much. I'm torn. But we'll see, it's his decision. In my honest opinion, I think his mind is still willing, it's just his body that's not. But his technique and will to fight will still carry him."

This bout marks Harrison's first appearance inside the circle since falling via TKO to then-bantamweight Muay Thai kingpin and striking legend Nong-O Hama in August 2022 as he was sidelined due to a multitude of injuries since that fight.

Liam Harrison thrilled to be back in training camp

Being on the shelf for as long as he has while also getting a tough matchup in his return would have any fighter worried about their preparations, but not Harrison.

In fact, Liam Harrison told ONE Championship that things finally feel normal again:

"Now, I'm back to training like I was before. Getting lots of hard, hard sparring rounds in because, obviously while I've been out with injury, that's what I missed. So I'm getting all that locked in now. I'm sparring with some real heavy hitters, some real sharp guys, and I'm just enjoying it."

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