How did Stamp Fairtex begin her journey to the top? Ahead of her main event title tilt against Ham Seo Hee on Friday, September 29, you can find those answers in a new documentary. Anatomy of a Fighter has released its latest athlete documentary on the Thai star ahead of ONE Fight Night 14.
Prem Busarabavonwongs, Managing Director of Fairtex Group, was at the forefront of shifting Thailand’s focus onto mixed martial arts. In the documentary, Prem states he had difficulty swaying his father to add MMA to the famed gym’s offerings until seeing Rika Ishige on the ONE Championship platform changed his mind. The first female athlete to come to Fairtex was Stamp.
The documentary gives insight into both Stamp’s early days and current training for her ONE Fight Night 14 main event. After just a few months at Fairtex, Rich Franklin walked through the doors to scout talent for ONE Warrior Series. Impressed by Stamp’s power, she quickly joined the promotion and saw success that brought her to the big stage.
Stamp’s rise to stardom has been swift but built on tangible results that ignite crowds to fall in love with her. It is partly because she is trying to accomplish something that has never been seen in the sport. She wants to become the first-ever three-sport World Champion.
The 25-year-old still has those aspirations. She can claim the elusive third title at ONE Fight Night 14, but it will not be easy. Ham is a veteran who is motivated by her legacy, and that will come to a head in Singapore on Friday.
ONE Fight Night 14 airs live on Friday, September 29, from Singapore. The action begins at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on Prime Video. The event is free for all Amazon Prime members based in the U.S. and Canada.
