Stamp Fairtex and Denice Zamboanga use to be close friends and training partners. But the Filipina moved to a different camp when both entered the atomweight Grand Prix.

Stamp would go on to win that tournament while Zamboanga was controversially eliminated at the quarter final stage. The two are coming off defeats at ONE: ‘X’ but were both reunited at the airport when returning to Bangkok from Singapore.

She declared that ‘we are coming back stronger’. Stamp was submitted by Angela Lee in the second round of their atomweight title fight but she had her moments.

The Muay Thai veteran hurt her opponent with a left hook to the body in the opening round but couldn’t capitalize. Another hard shot would surely have finished the champion but Stamp never got a chance to land it.

Zamboanga dropped a decision to Seo Hee Ham. The frustration for the Filipina is she clearly won the first fight between the two but two of the judges scored the contest for the Korean.

With both atomweights coming off losses a fight between the two of them would make a lot of sense. But with the Grand Prix done and dusted it appears that the friendship between them is no longer on hold!
