He has since claimed his first international title in the WKA (World Kickboxing Association) and WTKA (World Traditional Kickboxing Association) European Championships in K1, a world-wide kickboxing platform.

After winning three fights in a row and becoming the runner-up with the WKA British Open in the Muay Thai eight to 10 years group, Harper qualified for the World Championships in May. He was also the runner up in the UKMF (United Kingdom Muaythai Federation) Junior Super League in the nine to 11 year group.

Last month, Harper’s year was capped off with his latest success, as he swept up the WKA and WTKA Unified World Championship in Muay Thai and K1 in Tuscany, Italy.
