Janet Todd doesn’t want to get involved in Anissa Meksen ‘drama’
But Todd, who rarely bothers to update her social media, is refusing to get sucked into a war of words with the former Glory champion,
“I got nothing else to say. I’ve never been into all the drama. I feel like it takes away from the love of the sport. I just kind of keep my distance away from it. I understand why people like the drama, because it kind of builds fights, but I’ve never been into it,” she said.
She did, however, flat out deny that she was refusing to face the French fighter,
“I don’t think (Meksen) has her facts straight. I mean, she can believe whatever she wants, but I’ve always taken the fights that were offered to me,” she said.
Todd has not fought since April. It looks like she will be taking at least a year out but the current atomweight kickboxing champion says she still wants to take on the top contenders in the division,
“ONE Championship finds the best fighters in the world, including (Anissa Meksen). When I call myself a world champion, I want to be able to challenge myself against the top in the world,” she said.
Meksen accused Todd of refusing to fight her. But the American went on the record to confirm that she would be open to fighting the French fighter,
“I think she’s another good addition to our weight class. I’m just here to fight. If there’s a contract, I’ll sign it and I’ll fight. And if we do fight, it’s going to be a good fight.”
