TheStar Sit Chor looks set for a quick turnaround after her loss to Yu Yau Pui at Lumpinee Stadium. The atomweight’s ONE Championship debut did not go according to plan.
She featured at ONE Friday Fights 3 but was finished midway through the second round. The Thai fighter is not going to sit around dwelling on that defeat though.
TheStar will be back in action on March 4th when she takes on Spring Sia in Melbourne:

TheStar is based in Pattaya and seems to divide her time between several camps including Sityodtong and Sitpholek. She could not cope with the punching power of Yu Yau Pui on her ONE Championship debut.
The Hong Konger overwhelmed The Star with a second round onslaught at Lumpinee Stadium. A right hand to the body seemed to be the shot that did the damage with the photogenic Thai star never recovering:

TheStar is already in Australia to prepare for her fight with Spring Sia. She is training at the SMAC Gym in Victoria with Tum Winner Muay Thai who has been very successful fighting in Australia and the US.
The fight with Yu Yau Pui was TheStar’s first time fighting a three rounder in the smaller, MMA stye gloves. She might be more in her element at Roots 21 on March 4th where the fight will be a five rounder with normal boxing gloves.
Her opponent hails from Malaysia but is based full time in Australia. Spring Sia started Muay Thai relatively late in life but has emerged as a fan favourite in her adopted country.
TheStar might not have got 2023 off to the perfect start but she will be looking to get back to winning ways when she fights in Australia next month.
