Harrison to take on Or Kwanmuang at ONE 168

Liam Harrison will continue his return to the circle when he takes on Seksan Or Kwanmuang in a 140-pound Muay Thai bout at ONE 168 in Denver on September 6.

The kickboxing legend will make his return from a long-term knee injury he suffered back in 2022 on June 8 at ONE’s event in Bangkok and now gets the fight he has been wanting for a while in September against Or Kwanmuang.

Harrison has promised there will be excitement and fireworks when he makes his return in June.

“It’s going to be my job to keep [Kitano] under manners and show that I’ve still got what it takes to hang with the guys in ONE Championship,” he said.

“I want people to remember me for the blood, the guts, the sweat, the action, the drama, which is what I usually always bring to the table when I fight and that’s what I’m looking forward to for these next few fights that I’ve got coming up.

“I just want to get in there, have some highlight reel knockouts, some crazy wars as I have done throughout my whole career and enjoy myself.”

The fight card in September will also see ONE lightweight submission grappling world champion Kade Ruotolo defend his title against fellow American Mikey Musumeci.
