His dominating presence on the local scene saw him claiming significant victories and receiving substantial rewards.

His journey since has been a fervent quest to establish himself as the world’s foremost striker.
His exceptional trajectory paved his way to ONE Championship, where his debut was nothing short of spectacular, overcoming Muay Thai World Champion Joseph Lasiri. Representing the United Kingdom as one of its finest strikers, Haggerty continued to make global ripples in his subsequent bout, where he triumphed over the legendary Muay Thai World Champion Sam-A Gaiyanghadao in May 2019. This victory allowed him to seize the ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Title.
