ONE bantamweight kickboxing and Muay Thai world champion Jonathan Haggerty is in the thick of his prime years. While many fighters his age have struggled to master the art of striking, he has proven his quality time and time again.

At 27 years of age, 'The General' has already given combat sports fans many great fights and one fight that truly displayed his striking prowess was his February 2022 bout against Mongkolpetch Petchyindee.

Something was different in the former flyweight Muay Thai world champ entering the Monkgolpetch bout, as he was more determined than ever to establish his dominance early on.

Haggerty fired shots from all directions towards the Petchyindee Academy product and one of his best moments was a two-hit combo using his left hand that did damage to Mongkolpetch.ONE Championship posted a clip of the combo on Instagram.

Haggerty had lots of sublime striking moments such as these throughout the contest and it was not surprising then that he won the bout via unanimous decision.
