Thailand’s striking superstar Stamp Fairtex has a to-do list once the action
at ONE Championship resumes.
The first thing on the ONE Atomweight Muay
Thai World Champion’s list is a rubber match to regain her lost gold.
On 28 February, the Rayong native was
bested by Janet
“JT” Todd’s precise boxing and lethal high kicks, which
earned the American a split decision win and the ONE Atomweight Kickboxing
Now, Stamp is more fired up than ever for
a rematch with Todd.
“I would like to go back to training
like normal and get back in the ring to take my World Title back [from Todd],”
the 22-year-old said.
Besides a rematch against the Boxing
Works representative, Stamp still has her sights set on becoming a three-sport World
She owns a perfect 4-0 record in mixed
martial arts, finishing two opponents by knockout and one by submission. Her
skills keep improving with every appearance, and she wishes to return to the
discipline if given the chance.
“I would like to chase my dream in mixed

“I met Ritu before, we fought in the
same event. She is shorter but bigger than me. We have different body types,”
“As for Itsuki, she is good at the
ground game. She won against Rika Ishige [in October], but that’s because Rika

be one of the most inexperienced of the trio, but she has climbed her way up
the division using her world-class grappling. Hirata, on the other hand, has a
perfect 7-0 record, finishing all her opponents inside the Circle.
Only time will tell if Stamp can carve
a successful path toward her goal of becoming the world’s first three-sport World
Champion. But by the looks of it, the young star is well on her way to carrying
out that goal.
