ONE: King of the Jungle: Stamp Fairtex defends kickboxing title against Janet Todd

Stamp Fairtex is returning to the ONE Super Series in defence in Singapore of her atomweight kickboxing title.

The 22-year-old Thailand prodigy is also ONE’s atomweight Muay Thai world champion. She recently defeated Puja Tomar at ONE: A New Tomorrow, but makes the quick turnaround for February, where she will face American Janet Todd.

Todd, 34, is also an aerospace engineer, who was raised in Southern California. She competed against Fairtex earlier this year in February, dropping a unanimous decision in a Muay Thai bout. The two-time Pan-American Muay Thai champion is hoping this kickboxing matchup will have a different result.

In the co-main event, strawweight kickboxing champion Sam-A Gaiyanghadao of Thailand will attempt to add the strawweight Muay Thai title to his mantle when he faces ¬†Australia’s Rocky Ogden.

The card also features Japanese veteran Yoshihiro Akiyama, who takes on Egyptian Sherif Mohamed in a welterweight bout.
