Stamp Vs. Zamboanga, Tawanchai Vs. Nattawut World Title Fights To Headline ONE 167 On June 7

Stamp Fairtex Denice Zamboanga

A pair of scintillating World Championship bouts have been confirmed for ONE 167: Stamp vs. Zamboanga on Prime Video in U.S. primetime on Friday, June 7.

Three-sport megastar Stamp Fairtex will put her ONE Women’s Atomweight MMA World Title on the line for the first time, facing her friend and former teammate Denice “The Menace” Zamboanga at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand.

In the co-main event, Tawanchai PK Saenchai will defend his ONE Featherweight Muay Thai World Title in a rematch with fellow Thai star “Smokin” Jo Nattawut.  

The long-awaited battle between Stamp and #2-ranked Zamboanga will finally come to fruition.  

The pair were close friends when they worked together at Fairtex Training Center, honing their skills on the mats and becoming social media favorites for their dance routines. 

They remained on good terms even after Zamboanga left the Pattaya stable in late 2020, although a showdown for the gold has always looked inevitable. 

Stamp initially worked her way into World Title contention by winning the ONE Women’s Atomweight MMA World Grand Prix silver belt in 2021.

After losing in her first shot against “Unstoppable” Angela Lee, the 26-year-old Thai earned two straight MMA victories and then defeated “Hamzzang” Ham Seo Hee for the vacant belt when Lee retired last September.  

That epic knockout win made Stamp the first three-sport ONE World Champion in history after previously owning the atomweight Muay Thai and kickboxing thrones.

Meanwhile, Zamboanga had her eight-fight unbeaten streak snapped when she dropped consecutive decisions to Ham in 2021 and 2022 but rebounded with a pair of victories over Lin Heqin and Julie Mezabarba to solidify her standing in the division. 

For his part, Tawanchai has looked unstoppable in recent action, posting an 8-1 slate in ONE with seven straight wins and five knockouts.  

The PK Saenchai representative won the ONE Featherweight Muay Thai World Title in September 2022 and has defended it twice since – putting an exclamation mark on his reign when he defeated legendary striker Superbon Singha Mawynn last December. 

However, Nattawut was one of the opponents who pushed Tawanchai the hardest. “Smokin” Jo stepped in on short notice last October and made the 24-year-old work hard for a decision win in their three-round kickboxing thriller.  

The Thai veteran got back in the winner’s column with a strong showing against Luke “The Chef” Lessei in December, and he’ll hope to ride that momentum into the biggest fight of his career on June 7.
