Nauzet Trujillo Promises To ‘Blow The Roof Off Lumpinee Stadium’ Against Liam Nolan

Rungrawee Sitsongpeenong Nauzet Trujillo ONE Fight Night 13 3

Nauzet Trujillo is vowing to deliver a spectacular battle when he returns at ONE Fight Night 19: Haggerty vs. Lobo on Prime Video in U.S. primetime this Friday, February 16. 

The Spanish striker will face British star “Lethal” Liam Nolan in a lightweight Muay Thai clash at Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand, and after a disappointing promotional debut, he’s planning to put everything on the line in search of his first ONE victory. 

Although there’s no shame in a competitive loss to Thai sensation Rungrawee Sitsongpeenong, Trujillo didn’t feel like he performed to the best of his abilities – and that’s what he wants to change this time around.

The 34-year-old told onefc.com that he is ready for an all-out war with Nolan: 

“In my last fight, I didn’t fight using my style. I was on the back foot too much. My style typically involves me putting the pressure on my opponent and bringing the fight to them. 

“I think this one is going to be a beautiful fight – a fight with many exchanges that the fans will enjoy. I think we’re going to blow the roof off Lumpinee Stadium with our clash of styles.” 

Trujillo knows he’s in for a tough encounter with Nolan, who earned his second straight victory with a unanimous decision against Ali Aliev at ONE Fight Night 18 last month. 

The hard-hitting Brit has a lot of weapons in his arsenal and experience against some of the division’s top stars, but the Spaniard feels confident that he can score the upset.

Trujillo said of the former WBC Muay Thai World Champion:

“We know that he’s a southpaw and that he kicks hard with that rear leg. He also has a heavy left hand. 

“He’s a strong and complete fighter. He’s fought against some of the best in the world, and he’s someone I respect, but I believe the work I’ve done is enough to beat him.” 

Trujillo Looking For Gaps In Nolan’s Game 

Following his debut defeat last year, Nauzet Trujillo realized that he needs to be more aggressive against Liam Nolan on February 16. 

And after watching some of his foe’s previous battles, he believes this could also double up as a weakness in Nolan’s game. 

The Brit’s only defeat in his last five outings was a KO at the hands of Sinsamut Klinmee in July 2022, and Trujillo thinks that stoppage showed an area he can take advantage of:

“Nolan was knocked out in one of his previous fights, and I noticed that he doesn’t look confident when it comes to exchanging with his opponents. I don’t think he’s comfortable fighting in the small [4-ounce] gloves yet. 

“The small gloves influence the style of fighting a lot. You have to be more active, and you have to close the distance as well as distance yourself from your opponent when necessary. There’s a higher chance of getting knocked out due to the small gloves. Anyone can fall after getting hit with a heavy shot.” 

With that in mind, Trujillo sees a very real chance of leaving Bangkok with a knockout win under his belt.

The Santa Cruz de Tenerife native will certainly take the chance if it comes, but he’s also ready for anything once the first bell rings in his crucial lightweight Muay Thai clash. 

He added: 

“I can win via points, I can win via knockout, I can win 20,000 other ways. I’ve trained to go to war, and I’ve prepared myself for anything that may come my way.” 

“Right now, the goal is to win. I don’t want to talk [about what I can do]. I’d much rather demonstrate it.”
