Abelardo’s future, Stamp’s road top storylines to follow in ONE: No Surrender

When ONE Championship returns to live action this Friday, July 31, with ONE: No Surrender, a lot of questions will be answered.

In the main event, Rodtang “The Iron Man” Jitmuangnon defends his ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Title against Petchdam “The Baby Shark” Petchyindee Academy, and Petchmorakot Petchyindee Academy puts his ONE Featherweight Muay Thai World Title on the line against “The Boxing Computer” Yodsanklai IWE Fairtex in the co-main event.

But the undercard has just as many – if not more – exciting bouts. Here are some of the top narratives on the card.

It is no secret that a lot is expected of reigning ONE Women’s Atomweight Muay Thai World Champion Stamp Fairtex.

After all, not a lot of athletes have the gall to target becoming a three-sport World Champion. Although she took one step back when she lost her ONE Women’s Atomweight Kickboxing World Title to Janet “JT” Todd in February, she plans to take one step ahead on Friday night.

Stamp battles Sunisa “Thunderstorm” Srisen in an atomweight mixed martial arts clash. Another convincing win for the 22-year-old could put her among the division’s elite, which includes reigning ONE Women’s Atomweight World Champion “Unstoppable” Angela Lee and Filipina superstar Denice “The Menace Fairtex” Zamboanga.

There is no questioning Mark “Tyson” Fairtex Abelardo’s capabilities as an athlete. He impressed everyone in Rich Franklin’s ONE Warrior Series, but he has blown hot and cold since making it to the main roster.

Facing a deadly and equally hungry Fabrício “Wonder Boy” Andrade after a harrowing defeat to “Pretty Boy” Troy Worthen in February will reveal what the Filipino-Kiwi standout is truly made of.

Battle Of The Super AcquisitionsFILE-PHOTO-Sittichai Abelardo's future, Stamp's road top storylines to follow in ONE: No Surrender Mixed Martial Arts Muay Thai News ONE Championship  - philippine sports news

ONE Super Series hit the jackpot when it got two of the best featherweight kickboxers – Superbon and “The Killer Kid” Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong – in a span of three months.

It is only fitting to have them wrap up their trilogy in their respective debuts in The Home Of Martial Arts.

The pair of Thai superstars have already crossed paths twice in 2016, getting a win apiece before embarking on successful careers individually.

Now that both of them have signed with ONE, the question can finally be answered: Who is really the better kickboxer?

Catch ONE: NO SURRENDER this Friday, July 31, at 8:30 p.m. live on One Sports, One Sports+, or the ONE Super App. It will also run on encore on TV5 the next day, August 1at 11 p.m.
