Angela Lee has a fight booked. The reigning ONE Championship atomweight queen confirmed on Instagram that she had begun training for her next bout which could well be a title defence against Seo Hee Ham.

Lee is widely expected to take on the former Rizin super atomweight champion and Road FC atomweight champion in her next fight. But there has also been speculation about a trilogy fight with Xiong Jing Nan and she invited fans to guess who her opponent would be:

Training partner

Lee has enlisted the help of Bellator flyweight star Kana Watanabe who is training with her in Hawaii. Earlier this year she made a triumphant return less than a year after giving birth to her first daughter.

Lee submitted Stamp Fairtex in the second round at ONE: ‘X’ and remains the only fighter to ever hold the atomweight title. She has also challenged for the strawweight title but came up short against Xiong Jing Nan.

She is also training alongside ONE Championship strawweight Lea Bivins who recently saw her pro debut cancelled in unusual circumstances. Opponent Zeba Bano pulled out after being intimidated at the weigh in, at least according to the American’s version of events.

Family affair

As always training will be a family affair for Angela Lee. She will be working closely with her husband, Bruno Pucci, her brother, Christian Lee, and her other siblings and parents who are all martial artists.

If a fight with Seo Hee Ham is up next it looks set to be the toughest test of her career to date. The Korean is a UFC veteran who has dominated the atomweight division in Japan and Korea.

She has beaten the likes of Ayaka Hamasaki, Miyuu Yamamoto, Jinh Yu Frey and Mina Kurobe. Ham is riding an eight fight winning streak that has seen her capture titles with two different promotions.

Since signing for ONE Championship she has beaten Denice Zamboanga twice, although the first win came under controversial circumstances. A fight between Han and Lee would be absolutely huge and it could well have been booked already.
