BIO LIAM HARRISON
Liam Harrison is one of the best fighters that the UK has produced in any discipline, with a wealth of experience that belies his 27 years of age. The Leeds lad had his first professional fight a few weeks short of his fifteenth birthday and has never looked back, shooting up the rankings and taking his place on the world stage.
Harrison’s background is in Muay Thai, the native fighting art of Thailand. Noted for its emphasis on toughness and physical conditioning, it also requires fighters to be mentally alert, quick with counters and clever at tricking opponent into leaving openings. Harrison ticks all the boxes and is one of the handful of fighters from outside Thailand to have enjoyed real success there.
Harrison has won several internationally-recognized titles in his professional career, including the WAKO world title, WPMF world title and the prestigious World Muay Thai Council world title. He has also been number one in his weight class in the UK for the last eight years and shows no sign of slowing down. In fact he is now clicking up a gear by entering the GLORY ring for fights with the world’s best stand-up fighters and the chance to win a tournament prize of up to $300,000.
With crowd entertainment in mind, Harrison is always on the hunt for a finish. Whether it comes by way of a knockout punch or his trademark leg kicks, the Leeds man is relentless and never gets in there to play the points game. In his home city he has twice beaten the likes of professional footballers and other athletes to be voted ‘Leeds Sports Federation Sportsman of the Year’.
