Liam Harrison admitted that he was “a little bit let down” by Superlek Kiatmookao’s ONE Friday Fights 34 scale fail last week.

ONE Championship’s flyweight kickboxing champ missed weight by 5lbs for his titanic Muay Thai title fight against Rodtang Jitmuangnon in Bangkok, which was eventually changed to a non-title bout and switched from five rounds to three.

Bantamweight Muay Thai contender Harrison, a training partner of Superlek’s at the Yokkao gym when he is in Thailand, flew from the UK to sit and watch ringside at the event but could not hide his disappointment.
