Denice Zamboanga has made no secret of her desire to fight Stamp Fairtex. She is not just ready to rival the Thai fighter inside he cage, the Filipino is ready to give her a run for her money on the dancefloor too!

Stamp Fairtex is renowned for her dancing. She has amassed an army of followers on Tik Tok and Instagram who admire her for her K-pop inspired dance routines as well as he devastating Muay Thai skills.

But it seems she has a competitor. Her former training partner and potential future opponent shared a dancing video and we think Zamboanga has got some moves:

Clear path

While fans would probably pay to see Stamp and Zamboanga in a dance off they are more likely to meet in a conventional MMA fight. The Filipina currently sits at #4 in the atomweight rankings.

Meanwhile Stamp is the #1 ranked contender in the division. But while Zamboanga doesn’t currently have any fights booked the Thai has a very clear path towards the title.

Next up Stamp is fighting Alyse Anderson at ONE Fight Night 10 on Saturday. If she wins that then an interim atomweight title fight with Seo Hee Ham will be next.

If Stamp emerges victorious from that contest then a unification bout with Angela Lee awaits. That would be a rematch but the regular champion’s timescale for a return is unclear after the tragic death of her sister.

Uncertain future

Zamboanga’s future is far less certain. The only other ranked fighters at atomweight are Tiffany Teo, who has had issues making weight, and Alyona Rassohyna, who is pregnant.

Potential contenders are emerging virtually every week on the weekly shows at Lumpinee Stadium. Among them is Korean atomweight So Yul Kim who won at ONE Friday Fights 7 to take her record to 7-1.

Japanese wrestler Chihiro Sawada also caught the eye at ONE Friday Fights 5. She is undefeated and is currently riding a four fight winning streak.

So there is no shortage of up and coming talent in the division. Zamboanga wants a shot at Stamp, but she could be waiting a long time top get it.

She might bot be getting the fight she wants but at least the Filipina has proven that she could give Stamp a competitive dance off!
