Haggerty has made stunning progress through ONE Championship. The 26-year-old from Orpington defeated legendary champion Sam-A Gaiyanghadao in 2019 to capture the ONE flyweight Muay Thai world title.

He then moved up a weight class and shocked the world in 2023 with a stunning first-round TKO victory over longtime ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai world champion Nong-O Hama.

Haggerty made history once again later in the year when he knocked out Fabricio Andrade to win the vacant bantamweight kickboxing title and become a rare two-sport ONE world champion.

"He's 26 years old and he's really gone on a tear. He's really come into his own in the last 12 months, he's beaten some legendary names, very, very tough folks that no one thought he could beat and he's risen to the top of the world in two different sports.

"UK fans have not seen a striker of his calibre ever," he added.

"He's genuinely the best striker in the UK right now. But more importantly, arguably one of the best pound-for-pound strikers full stop across any martial art in the world today. An incredible, incredible story. He's absolutely talented.

"I think you're going to see him reign for a long time, but at the same time he's hungry for more. He has messaged me in the past about wanting to do mixed martial arts and eventually fight for the title as well."
