Tyson Harrison has never shied away from a tough fight. In fact, he leans into them.
The man known as “John Wayne Noi” returned to Lumpinee Stadium on August 4 to take on Tapaokaew Singha Mawynn in the main event of ONE Lumpinee 27 in Bangkok, Thailand and dispatched his Thai opponent in under three minutes.
Harrison scored an eight-count early in the first round of their bantamweight Muay Thai fight when he blasted Tapaokaew with a left hook. The latter returned to his feet, but Harrison wasted no time. He pounced and landed a two-piece that rendered Tapaokaew useless.
“Look, I just want to keep doing what I’m doing. I’ve just been wild. I’ve just been focused. I’ll fight whoever they want me to. And I’m just ready to be the best, not rush anything, just take it as it comes. I’m just always going to put my complete heart into it because I’m Australian and that’s what we do.”Tyson Harrison’s intense post-fight speech after defeating Tapaokaew.
