Stamp Fairtex may be ONE’s first two-sport world champion, but Jihin Radzuan still isn’t buying the hype.

Ahead of the female atomic weight clash at ONE on Prime Video 2: Xiong vs. Lee III, which aired live during prime time in the United States, “Shadow Cat” claimed that she was not really impressed with the Thai superstar skill set. In fact, she thinks her last two opponents have been harder to face.

Radzuan spoke to ONE Championship as she wrapped up her preparations for the No. 1-ranked women’s atomweight fighter on September 30 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

The 24-year-old Malaysian said:

“I feel really positive about it. I think Stamp is a good opponent, a solid fighter, but she’s probably the worst fighter I have. [faced recently] after fighting a few legit fighters [in Mei Yamaguchi and Itsuki Hirata].”

Radzuan has worked his way up to No. 5 in the division standings after winning his last three fights. The Ultimate MMA Academy star isn’t over yet. She wants to take Stamp’s place as the top contender at 115 pounds.

After all, a win over a former Muay Thai and kickboxing world champion would likely guarantee Radzuan a shot at female atomweight queen Angela Lee. Then again, bringing down Stamp will be much easier said than done.

After dominating ONE’s hitting-only scene, the former ONE Super Series star has made a smooth transition into mixed martial arts. She has won eight of her first ten MMA fights, her last fight being a world title loss to ‘Unstoppable’.

Along with his superb punching skills, Stamp has also shown an ever-improving ground game, as evidenced by his submission victories over tough opponents like Asha Roka and Ritu Phogat. Jihin Radzuan may discredit Stamp’s abilities, but the Thai star’s work proves otherwise.


Jihin Radzuan says she can take on Stamp Fairtex

A veteran of 85 Muay Thai and kickboxing fights, Stamp Fairtex is arguably one of the most accomplished fighters in the punching arts. Her prowess on the feet translated smoothly into MMA, as she dispatched Rashi Shinde, Puja Tomar and Sunisa Srisen via KO/TKO.

Jihin Radzuan, however, believes in his own stand-up game and thinks Stamp’s striking is simply better on paper.

Jihin Radzuan told ONE:

“I think the way she sells herself as that dreaded Muay Thai and Kickboxing World Champion makes everyone think her striking is so good. It’s not right up there, but it’s good. One thing I can say about his typing is that it’s fast. His hands, kicks, and elbows can get to you quickly.

Additionally, Jihin Radzuan argued that Stamp’s previous opponents didn’t have the same striking pedigree that she possesses:

“It will work against women who don’t know how to strike. As for me, I know how to go about it.
