Two-sport World Champion Stamp Fairtex believes things will be a lot different in her rematch with Janet “JT” Todd.
Stamp defends her ONE Atomweight Kickboxing World Title against the American in the main event of ONE: King of the Jungle at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on February 28.
Around the same time last year, Stamp outpointed Todd at ONE: Call to Greatness in the same venue to win the inaugural ONE Atomweight Muay Thai World Title.
This time around, it will be her Kickboxing World Title at stake, and the charming superstar from Thailand expects this clash to be as tough – if not tougher – than their last clash.
“Rematching Janet under kickboxing rules is going to be completely different,” Stamp told ONEFC.com.
“I think we’re both just going to have to wait and see who can throw the better combos, and whose shots are cleaner and more damaging.”
The 22-year-old expects a tougher grind against “JT” – especially since the 34-year-old has gone on to defeat Wang Chin Long, Chuang Kai Ting, and Ekaterina Vandaryeva, respectively.
Stamp, on the other hand, only competed once in Super Series since their first meeting. She beat Alma Juniku in a Muay Thai contest before building her case in mixed martial arts with three straight wins.
“For Janet, I think her advantage is her physique. She’s very muscular and does a lot of conditioning. I’ve watched on her Instagram and she’s naturally very athletic,” Stamp said.
Nonetheless, the pride of Pattaya expects this to go the distance once more.
Make no mistake about it, Stamp is confident that she will get her hand raised, but she has reservations on finishing Todd.
“I will win, but I think this fight will go the distance. I don’t think I can knock her out because I wasn’t able to do it before when we were wearing the small gloves in Muay Thai.”
ONE Championship returns to The Lion City for ONE: King of the Jungle on February 28 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
Also competing on the card is former ONE Featherweight World Champion Honorio “The Rock” Banario. He returns to the division he once dominated when he battles Shannon “OneShin” Wiratchai.
Rising stars Mark “Tyson” Fairtex Abelardo and Denice “The Menace Fairtex” Zamboanga will also see action that night.
