  • 2008
    Age 22
    In 2008 Liam fought a number of bouts at Bad Company promoted shows in his home town of Leeds, defeating the likes of Benabdeljelil Mehdi and Masaru Ito.
    More Details Hide Details He also retained his W.M.C. lightweight world title by stopping Sarmsamut Kiatchongkao in June of that year. The following year Liam would face extremely stiff competition as he faced the likes of Saenchai Sor Kingstar and Anuwat Kaewsamrit. Liam did well against Saenchai but came up short against arguably the world's pound for pound best fighter in Muay Thai, losing a decision in their matchup in London. He then headed to Jamaica to face another legend in Anuwat, being defeated via TKO to the "Hands of Siam" and losing his W.M.C. world title in what was a first ever stoppage loss for Liam. The Hitman would gain revenge against Anuwat Kaewsamrit in March 2010, defeating him by unanimous decision over five rounds in their rematch in Manchester. Although Anuwat was not as dominant a force as he had been a few years previously, he was still a strong fighter and Liam's best victory up to date. He would also have the chance to enhance his name by entering the inaugural Thai Fight competition, a knock out event involving sixteen of the world's best Muay Thai fighters at 67 kg/147.4 lbs with a first place prize of 2,000,000 Baht (around $62,000). Despite being one of the smaller fighters at the tournament (Liam usually fought around 63 kg/138.6 kg) he went into the event with some confidence, and so it proved as he outworked the Iranian Behzan Rafighdoust in his first match forcing him to quit in the second round.

He also made brief forays back to the United Kingdom, facing W.M.C. world champion Numphon PK Sterio two times that year. Liam lost the first match between the pair, but won the second in Manchester in November via a fourth round KO, picking up his biggest victory up to that point as well as winning the W.M.C. lightweight world title – arguably Muay Thai's most prestigious honour. He was also named as the Muay Siam magazine's top foreign fighter of the year.
  • 2006
    Age 20
    Having gained his first victory in Thailand, Liam strung together five victories in the country throughout 2006 which included winning another world title – this time the W.P.M.F. light welterweight belt against reigning champion Masa Hiroshima - as well as retaining his Patong stadium title.

    Age 18
    At the end of 2004, Liam travelled to Italy where he was supposed to face reigning champion Massimo Rizzoli for his W.A.K.O. low-kick kickboxing world title, although an injury suffered by Rizzoli meant that Liam would face the W.A.K.O. European champion Emannuel Di Profetis instead.
    More Details Hide Details Despite the late change of opponent and fighting in a rule set different from Muay Thai, Liam won the match by technical knockout to become world champion aged just 19 years old. Victory in Italy was quickly followed by success at home when Liam defeated the Dutch-based kickboxer Mohamed Ajuou to claim the European version of the S.I.M.T.A. belt (Liam had won a regional title back in 2000).
