It only took Wondergirl Fairtex 81 seconds to put the ONE Championship Super Series roster on notice. But the way she pummelled Australian Brooke Farrell with punches at ONE: No Surrender III at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, you would not have imagined the anxiety she was feeling leading up to her promotional debut. “I get nervous every time I fight. I didn’t fight [for] like a year and this was my first fight in ONE Championship so I was so nervous and excited,” the 21-year-old Thai told SCMP MMA. “It was the golden time. I got a chance to knock her out, I took it. But I didn’t expect that, to do the KO, first round. It was pretty cool. It was awesome.” So impressive was her debut, Wondergirl is back in action for this weekend’s ONE: A New Breed card in the Thailand capital. She faces KC Carlos of the Philippines in a strawweight Muay Thai contest. “I’m ready to fight [again] because the last fight I didn’t get injured at all, nothing,” she said. Wondergirl revealed her debut was supposed to happen in March but was delayed because of the Coronavirus outbreak. “The Covid-19 pandemic gave me more time to prepare my hands, my boxing skills. Good improvement,” she said. The pandemic pushed pause on all activity in Thailand, just like the rest of the world, and without a scheduled fight during the lockdown, she travelled home from Fairtex Training Centre in Pattaya to Bangkok and sharpened her tools. “I quarantined with my family. My dad, my sister, my mum. We trained, we drilled. We had plenty of time to drill skills,” she said. “It was relaxing to be back home – because we don’t have a fight coming up, we can drill whatever we want. My hands, my elbows, everything. It was a good time, family time.” Wondergirl’s younger sister Supergirl Jaroonsak will also be joining the Super Series roster alongside her, news that has garnered plenty of attention in the Muay Thai community since the duo were already famous for their skills on the local circuit. “I feel happy for her,” Wondergirl said. “She’s a young girl and talented. She deserves it. I think she might fight soon.” “[Fighting on the same card] would be great because I can spend time with her, my dad, with my family. If I win, I can talk with them, I can see them, hug them. That would be great.” When she left her father’s gym, Jaroonsak Muay Thai, and joined the fight team at Fairtex, Wondergirl’s intentions were to eventually transition to MMA. Those plans will be put on hold while she tries to follow the blueprint laid out by her training partner, Stamp Fairtex. “I will stick to Muay Thai first. I want to be a Muay Thai champion, like Stamp. Yeah, she’s my idol,” Wondergirl said. But while she has gold on her mind, Wondergirl is in no rush and wants to rack up a few more victories inside the ring while gaining that all-important experience, starting with Friday night against Carlos.
