YOKKAO 29: Keith McLachlan vs Jonathan Haggerty!
With 3 back-to-back fight announcements made for YOKKAO 30, it’s now time to shine for YOKKAO 29. The first fight has just been confirmed for YOKKAO 29 and features 2 of the region’s elite fighters – Keith McLachlan taking on Jonathan Haggerty. Both competitors are no strangers to the UK Muay Thai scene, and especially to YOKKAO supporters.
Keith McLachlan is the current UK number 1 at 59 kg, fighting out of The Griphouse gym in his hometown of Glasgow where he also coaches. He delivered a steady performance in his 2 appearances on YOKKAO events, fighting with a methodical style free of redundant flair. The Glasgow number 1 came out victorious twice at YOKKAO 13 and 14, proving the effectiveness of his uncomplicated fighting style. In his time, Keith has faced the likes of UK top fighters including Panicos Yusuf and Stephen Meleady.
Keith’s opponent at YOKKAO 29 will be current ISKA Super-Featherweight World Champion, Jonathan Haggerty. The 20 year-old Walworth pride last fought on YOKKAO 28 against a more experienced Ja Kiatphontip. Despite a sharp and brilliant performance, Jonathan lost the fight on points. Fighting since the age of nine, the young English lad will return to the YOKKAO ring once again to forge his legacy in the promotions and attempt to prove why he is the fighter to look out for.
