Stamp Fairtex on former rivals Janet Todd and Allycia Hellen Rodrigues
This Friday night at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, Stamp Fairtex is looking forward to watching some of her old rivals fight.
Allycia Hellen Rodrigues hasn’t competed since winning the ONE atomweight Muay Thai world championship in August 2020 against crowd favorite Stamp Fairtex. She will make her first appearance in the circle in more than two years at ONE Fight Night 8 to reaffirm her status as the undisputed monarch.
Janet Todd, who Stamp Fairtex is also very well acquainted with, will be the obstacle in her path. JT has established herself as one of the top female competitors in the world while Rodrigues is out of the picture. She demonstrated this when, in August, she defeated Lara Fernandez to win the promotion’s interim world championship.
In a recent interview with ONE Championship, Stamp shared her views on the highly anticipated co-main event after having previously shared the ring with both women:
I think both of them are good fighters… They are at the same level. For Allycia, although she was away from the arena for a long time after giving birth, she has come back so strong as seen from her recent training. For Janet, her agility is already the hallmark.”
Prior to switching to MMA full-time, Stamp Fairtex suffered consecutive losses to Allycia Hellen Rodrigues and Janet Todd, but she has already declared her plan to face the victor later this year.
Stamp Fairtex wishes to fight again against Angela Lee considering a return to Muay Thai
Even though Stamp Fairtex plans to return to the art of the eight limbs later this year, the fan favorite doesn’t intend to give up on her goal of becoming the first three-sport ONE world winner in the promotion:
“I think I’ll find a way back to fight in Muay Thai for fans who miss me… I hope that Chatri would allow me to come back to Muay Thai sometime next year.”
After losing to Allycia Hellen Rodrigues in August 2020, Stamp stopped competing in Muay Thai. Since then, she has dedicated herself completely to mixed martial arts, compiling a stellar 9-2 record en route to winning the ONE Atomweight World Grand Prix competition in 2021 and earning a chance to challenge reigning atomweight champion Angela Lee for the title.
Stamp lost her first encounter with Lee at the promotion’s ONE X showcase, which celebrated its 10th anniversary, but she is determined to have a repeat with the “Unstoppable” champion:
“Although I lost, I didn’t regret sharing the circle with her… I learned a great lesson from that fight. It was a big, good test for me. For sure, I will improve my ground game more, with the hope of challenging Angela Lee again.”
Prior to her comeback at ONE Fight Night 10, Stamp Fairtex makes headway.
In preparation for her expected return at ONE Fight Night 10 on Prime Video in May, ONE superstar Stamp Fairtex is working hard.
Since defeating Anna “Supergirl” Jaroonsak in a controversial ruling in January, Stamp is making her first public appearance. It will be her first MMA fight since she won a unanimous decision over Jihin Radzuan in September of last year.
At ONE Fight Night 10, the former two-sport winner will square off against Alyse Anderson of the United States. Stamp has been putting in a lot of effort to stand out in her upcoming appearance
