All the ONE Championship superstars are more than eager to be back in action. Stamp Fairtex is no different.

The ONE Atomweight Muay-Thai Champion has been spending time with her family in Thailand during the COVID-19 lockdown and was recently interviewed by ONE championship.

In the interview, she addressed the challenges she got from Indian MMA fighter Ritu Phogat and Japanese star Itsuki Hirata and noted that she is open to fighting both.

“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 was smaller. Itsuki has more experience in mixed martial arts than Ritu. I think a fight between Itsuki and I would be crazy because we both really go for it,” Stamp noted.

Stamp admitted that she might not have the ground skills to have a showdown with reigning ONE Championship Atomweight MMA champion Angela Lee yet but once again expressed her openness to fight both Ritu and Itsuki.

“I know I am not ready and good enough with the ground game yet [to challenge Angela]. For Ritu or Itsuki, I can face both of them. I have no problem with that,” she added.

The Thai superstar also added that she wants to win the ONE Atomweight Kickboxing title back from Janet Todd in the near future.

As for her Mixed Martial Arts journey, Stamp Fairtex is currently 4-0 in her MMA career and will be looking to pile up on this record as she moves towards her goal of winning the ONE Atomweight MMA World title.
