Fairtex is pushing boundaries with some tremendous news.
Smilla Sundell Beats Jackie Buntan for ONE Championship Strawweight title
The talk of the town was Smilla, The Storm, and Sundell against the skilled Jackie Buntan. There was tons of drama in this one. Sundell missed the strict hydration test on weigh in day, then had to weigh in day of the fight. Buntan from Boxing Works passed with professional ease on the first day.
Come fight day, The Storm’s weapons were an absolute force. Tall and lanky she used her jab to punch in Buntan’s face. By the second and third round of the five round affair, Buntan had slowed. The American showed tremendous resilience and clever defense. Buntan used a knee guard to slow the taller Swede.
“Her jab was good,” Ferrari Fairtex said. “When Buntan did the knee guard, Smilla didn’t step back to break the guard. But she can defend her belt.”

The trilogy is hot. The first time they met for the 135lb Channel 7 belt, Nakrob was sure he won. The judges gave it to Batman. Fairtex Training Center Manager, Prem Busarabavonwongs brought the bout to the Sports Authority of Thailand. The SAT reviewed the fight. They viewed the fight in Nakrob’s favor.

The third time’s a charm though. The two will fight three rounds of action and Nakrob has a score to settle!
