Kickboxing black belt Julie Mezabarba says she has better striking than Stamp Fairtex
Stamp Fairtex might be a Muay Thai veteran but Julie Mezabarba has a kickboxing black belt. The Brazilian believes her striking will be too much for her opponent when they meet at ONE: ‘NextGen’ later this month.
“She’s also a striker so I think the fight will be good on the feet but I think her Muay Thai is lower than my kickboxing.”
Mezarbaba did admit that she wasn’t expecting an easy night,
“I think it’s going to be a hard fight,” she said.
“I don’t care if I’m main card or main event I just want to do my best. It doesn’t matter who I am fighting.”
Mezarbaba said that the judging in the fight between Ham and Zamboanga was just fine and agreed that the Korean deserved to get the decision nod, although it appears she did not watch the entire fight. But the Brazilian does not sound in awe of any of the semi finalists,
“I’m not impressed by anyone,” she said.
A shot at Angela Lee awaits the tournament winner and Mezarbaba already has her sights set on a fight with the atomweight champion,
“I’ve been thinking about that since I signed my contract. I’m working hard to get the belt and to beat everyone ahead of me.”
