Broomfield, CO — With a win over Invicta FC alum Alyse Anderson at ONE Fight Night 10, Thailand’s Stamp Fairtex secured an interim title shot in ONE Championship’s women’s atomweight division.
That opportunity, necessitated by champ Angela Lee taking time off to grieve the loss of sister Victoria, will come later this year. Stamp (10-2) will go up against former UFC fighter and RIZIN champion Seo Hee Ham for interim gold — but despite Ham’s credentials, the 25-year old from the famed Fairtex Training Center doesn’t feel the South Korean represents her toughest test to date.
“Angela Lee is much tougher. The toughest opponent I’ve ever faced was Angela,” Stamp told media outlets including Cageside Press during Friday’s ONE Fight Night 10 post-fight press conference, with ONE Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong translating.
After winning ONE’s atomweight grand prix, Stamp faced Angela Lee in March 2022, only to be submitted in her first title shot.
Stamp was willing to leave the date of the Ham fight up to the ONE CEO, adding that she was “ready any time.” She certainly looked ready on Friday, finishing Anderson with a nasty kick to the body.
ONE Fight Night 10 was the promotion’s debut on U.S. soil; it was also Stamp’s first time to the States. The crowd reaction, with that in mind, was a positive sign, with Stamp adding she was “very surprised and very inspired when the crowd was going crazy,” adding that it gave her “so much energy to perform.”
As for the highlight of the trip outside of the cage, Stamp Fairtex “loved the snow,” because it was the first time the Thai star “had ever experienced snow.”
The former two-sport ONE champion (Muay Thai and kickboxing) also had some advice to young girls wanting to follow a similar path to her own.
“You have to truly love what you do, and just never give up. It’s very simple advice, but truly love what you do.”
