Liam Harrison Wiki

Liam "The Hitman" Harrison (born 5 October 1985) is an English welterweight Muay Thai fighter currently fighting out of Bad Company (when based in the UK) and trains at Jitti Gym and Yokkao Training Center in Bangkok (when fighting in Thailand). Brought up in his hometown of Leeds, Liam first started training in Muay Thai aged 13, when he joined the Bad Company gym in Harehills. There he trained under Richard Smith, still his current trainer, who is a former British, Commonwealth and European kickboxing champion. Liam was large for his age and made his amateur debut aged 14, winning in a no head contact fight. He made his pro debut not much later, just before his fifteenth birthday, defeating Martin Shivnan via knockoutin around 30 seconds. Success on his pro debut lead to a number of victories on the local scene culminating in a bout for the S.I.M.T.A. Northern Area title, which he won against opponent Abdul Arif, again by first-round knockout.Between 2000 and 2004 Liam established himself as the top fighter in the United Kingdom in his weight class, having moved up from featherweight (52 kg/114.4 lbs) to light welterweight (63.5 kg/139.7 lbs]) and having beaten domestic and international competition including Ait Said Aberderahman, Preechapon Por Nuongubon, Satoruvasikoba. At the end of 2004 Harrison travelled to Italy where he was supposed to face reigning champion Massimo Rizzoli for his W.A.K.O. low-kick kickboxing world title. Rizzoli suffered an injury and Liam faced the W.A.K.O. European champion Emannuel Di Profetis instead. Despite the late change of opponent and fighting in a rule set different from Muay Thai, Harrison won the match by technical knockout to become world champion.

The win in Italy was followed by success at home when Harrison defeated Dutch-based kickboxer Mohamed Ajuou to claim the European version of the S.I.M.T.A. belt. In following fights Harrison beat Abdoulaye M'baye and Benzouaoua Hakim as well as Hiromasa Masuda in a rematch from 2003 and was still undefeated into 2005. He made his Thai debut in August of that year, losing a split decision to Witthayanoi Sitkuanem at Rajadamnern Stadium in what was the first defeat of his pro career. Harrison suffered a second consecutive loss a few months later on his return to England, losing to another Thai in Duwao Kongudom who was a highly rated Omnoi Stadium champion, in a match in Wolverhampton.

Despite suffering two defeats including losing his Thai debut Harrison headed back to Thailand at the end of 2005. He won his first title on Thai soil by defeating a much bigger Russian opponent to claim the Patong Stadium belt at 68 kg (149.6 lbs). With his first victory in Thailand, Liam strung together five more victories in the country throughout 2006 which included winning the W.P.M.F. light welterweight belt against reigning champion Masa Hiroshima as well as retaining his Patong stadium title. He also re-matched Witthayanoi Sitkuanem but was once again unsuccessful. That year was awarded the "Leeds Sports Federation Sportsman of the Year" award.

Throughout 2007 Liam fought primarily in Thailand, basing himself at the Jitti Gym in Bangkok. He fought a number of bouts at the major stadiums including at Lumpinee Stadium, managing to successful defend his W.P.M.F. world title two times that year. He also made brief forays back to the United Kingdom, facing W.M.C. world champion Numphon PK Sterio two times that year. Liam lost the first match between the pair, but won the second in Manchester in November via a fourth-round KO, picking up his biggest victory up to that point as well as winning the W.M.C. lightweight world title. He was also named as the Muay Siam magazine's top foreign fighter of the year.

In 2008 Harrison fought a number of bouts at Bad Company promoted shows in his home town of Leeds, with wins over Benabdeljelil Mehdi and Masaru Ito. He also retained his W.M.C. lightweight world title by stopping Sarmsamut Kiatchongkao in June of that year. In 2009 Harrison lost a decision to Saenchai Sor Kingstar in London. He then headed to Jamaica to face Anuwat Kaewsamrit, being defeated via TKO and losing his W.M.C. world title in what was his first ever stoppage loss.

Harrison would gain revenge against Anuwat Kaewsamrit in March 2010, defeating him by unanimous decision over five rounds in their rematch in Manchester. Although Anuwat was not at his peak anymore he was Harrison's best victory up to date. He would also have the chance to enhance his name by entering the inaugural Thai Fight competition, an event involving sixteen Muay Thai fighters at 67 kg/147.4 lbs with a first place prize of 2,000,000 Baht (around $62,000).[6] Despite being one of the smaller fighters at the tournament he outworked Behzad Rafigh Doust in his first match forcing him to quit in the second round. Going into the quarter finals Liam then knocked out Soishiro Miyakoshi with elbows. Harrison was later disqualified from the tournament for coming in over the weight. He insisted it being the result of a sickness he caught prior to the match.

In 2011 Harrison had two rematches against opponents who had defeated him in the past. He lost both of them, against Saenchai Sor Kingstar and Petaswin Seatranferry, who had defeated him at an event in Glasgow the previous year.

On 31 March 2012 he beat Andrei Kulebin by TKO in round 3 using his kicks.

Harrison lost to Saenchai PKSaenchaimuaythaigym for the third time at Muay Thai Warriors in Macau on 9 December 2012, losing a clear-cut unanimous decision.

He competed in the Glory 8: Tokyo - 2013 65kg Slam in Tokyo, Japan on 3 May 2013.He lost to Masaaki Noiri via TKO due to a cut in round two in the quarter-finals.

He lost to Sagetdao Petpayathai by decision in the semi-finals of a four-man 68 kg tournament at MAX Muay Thai 3 in Zhengzhou, China on 10 August 2013.

Harrison stopped his four-fight losing streak with a unanimous decision victory over Dylan Salvador at The Main Event 2013 in Manchester, England on 2 November 2013.

He was set to fight Damien Alamos for his Yokkao promotional debut at Yokkao 8 in Bolton, England on 8 March 2014[19][20] but Alamos withdrew from the fight, claiming to have a hand injury, and was replaced by Houcine Bennoui.[21] He defeated Bennoui on points in a five-round -65 kg Muay Thai bout.

Harrison defended his Yokkao 65 kg title on 25 March 2017 at Yokkao 24 against Ryan Mekki.

In 2018, Harrison inked a non-exclusive deal with ONE Championship to compete in ONE Super Series Muay Thai. He lost his first two bouts to Petchmorakot Petchyindee Academy at ONE: Destiny of Champions and Rodlek at ONE: Legendary Quest, but won by first-round KO in his third bout with the organization at ONE: A New Tomorrow against Mohammed Bin Mahmoud.

Harrison was scheduled to face the former Lumpinee Boxing Stadium champion Muangthai P.K. Saenchaimuaythaigym at ONE Championship: Eersel vs. Sadikovic on April 22, 2022. He won the fight by a first-round technical knockout. Harrison was awarded a $100,000 bonus for winning the fight.
