Tyson Harrison has scored his second ONE Championship win overnight.
“John Wayne Noi” needed little more than two minutes to blitz Tapaokaew Singha Mawynn in their bantamweight Muay Thai contest at ONE Friday Fight 27 on August 4.
Tapaokaew came out firing legkicks on home soil at the Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok. But only 35 seconds into the opening round, a hard right hand from Harrison sent the Thai to the canvas.
Harrison quickly swarmed the rising Tapaokaew, who clinched up in a bid to recover.
A flying knee missed the mark for the Queenslander, before he wobbled his foe once again with a hard right hand midway through the round.
Tapaokaew once again hung on desperately, but ultimately walked onto a thunderous Harrison uppercut which sent him crashing backwards.
Referee Olivier Coste waved off the contest before the Thai even hit the ground at the 2:20 mark of round one.
Harrison improved his ONE record to 2-2 which his second promotional knockout, while his two losses were “fight of the year” candidates.
The Corporate Box Valley representative, who lives and trains in Thailand at Sangtiennoi Muay Thai, has established himself as a firm fan favourite since making his ONE debut in January. The 22-year-old’s last two bouts have been main events with the Asian martial arts giant.
