In a previous interview with ONE, Meksen said:
“Since I signed with ONE Championship, my goal has been clear. I want to take the belt in kickboxing, so I want to face Janet Todd. I want this fight as soon as possible. She wants to face me, but she doesn’t respond when I speak about her. She wants to face me; I want to face her. So let’s make this fight as soon as possible.”
Phetjeeja has had a rapid rise to fame. In a prior interview, the Thai-born star said:
“I feel like I’m more recognized now. The kids look up to me as their idol. I’m more well-known among international fans. Sometimes when I go out, I often receive greetings from strangers. That makes me feel good.”
Meksen and Phetjeeja will meet in Lumpinee Stadium on Dec. 22 at ONE Friday Fights 46 live from Bangkok, Thailand.
