- American Todd stuns champion to claim One atomweight kick-boxing title at ‘King of the Jungle’
- ‘I will go back and fix everything this fight has taught me,’ says Stamp
Stamp Fairtex gave an emotional apology to her fans after her shock loss to Janet Todd at One Championship's "King of the Jungle" event in Singapore.
The Thai dropped her One atomweight kick-boxing world title by split decision in the main event at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Friday night.
"I apologise to everyone who has been cheering me on," Stamp wrote in an Instagram post. "I couldn't protect this belt, but I promise I will bring it back.
"Today I did my best, but it may not be enough. I will go back to fix everything this fight has taught me. I'm sorry."
As coronavirus touches MMA world, One's Aung La 'praying for everyone'
The show played out behind closed doors because of the deadly coronavirus outbreak, as Stamp relinquished her status as a two-sport One world champion.
The 22-year-old, who is still One's atomweight Muay Thai champion, has been active in the Asian organisation as of late, going 4-0 in her burgeoning MMA career in Bangkok in January.
Todd put on a masterful performance in a close fight that could have gone either way.
"I've been speaking life into being a One Championship world champion for a year, and tonight my dream manifested into reality," she wrote on Instagram.
"To all the dreamers out there, keep believing in yourself. You can do it. Your dreams are yours for the living."
