Two warriors went into battle on this past weekend?s MuayThai Mayhem promotion in the UK looking to be crowned the new WBC MuayThai super-featherweight (130 lbs, 58.967 kg) International champion.

It was a case of pure joy and ecstasy for one ? agony and devastating defeat for the other ? the two aforementioned combatants were England?s rising MuayThai star Jonathan Haggerty (130lb ranked #11), and Spanish fighter Issac Araya (130lb ranked #17).

The contest itself started with the opening stanza seeing both fighters looking to set a dominant tone, exchanging good clean combinations throughout the three minutes.

The second round saw Haggerty put his foot (in reality hands, a sharpe left knee and some powerful left body kicks) on the proverbial gas peppering the Spaniard with unrelenting attacks, at one stage forcing him through the ropes from a powerful strike.

About two minutes into the second round Haggerty forced the referee to give Araya a standing eight-count, from a thunderous right hand, a count that ultimately rendered the brave fighter from Tenerife?s Shoothon gym to surrender the contest ? and in doing so Haggerty was crowned the new WBC MuayThai super-featherweight (130 lbs, 58.967 kg) International champion.

With this victory Jonathan Haggerty has guaranteed his right of passage into the top ten in the WBC MuayThai super-featherweight world rankings.

The WBC ringside supervisor for the contest was Mr. Daniel Suarez (WBC MuayThai Vice-Chairman).

On behalf of Pol. Gen. Kovid Bhakdibhumi and everyone at the WBC MuayThai we would like to congratulate Jonathan Haggerty on his wonderful victory and also extend a warm sense of thanks to Mr. John Jarvis and his promotion for hosting the International title fight.
