Video: Watch Liam Harrison knock out one of Jordan Watson's teeth

  • Published in Muay Thai

In preparation of their upcoming title bouts, Bad Company's Jordan Watson and Liam Harrison were sparring in front of the Yokkao cameras, when Harrison landed flush with an uppercut, knocking one of Watson's teeth out. 

Despite the injury, it was all smiles between the two, who both are scheduled to headline Yokkao's double-event next month. Watson will be defending his 70kg Yokkao world title he won last October when he meets the ultra-talented Sanny Dahlbeck. Harrison on the other-hand, will need to claw the 65kg belt away from the grasp of pound-for-pound great Pakorn.

Yokkao's 12 & 13 will commence on March 21st from the Macron Arena in Bolton, Manchester.

Supershowdown presents Yokkao are combining both their 10th and 11th shows into a super-card this coming Saturday from the Reebox Arena in Bolton, UK. It was announced today that both shows will feature a Yokkao World Champion crowned in the main events in the respective weights. 

Headlining Yokkao 10 will be Bad Company representative Jordan Watson as he makes only his second appearance of 2014 when he battles Frenchman Mickael Piscitello. 

Previous headliner Liam Harrison has unfortunately had to pull out of his scheduled bout with Kongsak Sitboonmee due to a shin injury he sustained in his September victory over Mehdi Zatout (link to image of injury). Veteran Tim Thomas has stepped up to replace him.
