Anissa Meksen, Jackie Buntan to Vie for ONE Women’s 125-Pound KB Belt on July 5

One Championship is adding a new championship to the mix in its kickboxing suite.

According to sources close to the situation, ONE on Prime Video 23 on July 5 will be headlined by an inaugural 125-pound kickboxing championship match. Anissa Meksen (103-6, 33 KOs) will toe the line against Jackie Buntan (6-1, 1 KO) for the newly created strap. Meksen will be moving up to 125 pounds for this contest, while Buntan will be switching gears from muay thai to kickboxing. The two ladies will battle it out atop an evening that will be held in Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok.

Meksen saw an impressive four-fight win streak, one that included her first three victories under the ONE banner, come to a halt in December when she came up short against Phetjeeja, born Ninlada Meekun, for the interim ONE 115-pound kickboxing title.

California’s Buntan worked her way up the amateur circuit until turning pro in 2021, where she outworked Nat Jaroonsak, Ekaterina Vandaryeva and Daniela Lopez in three fights that year. Buntan then fought for the first ONE women’s 125-pound muay thai belt, ultimately coming up short to Smilla Sundell. Since then, Buntan has rattled off three more wins, with one in 2022, another in 2023 and the third in 2024. Most recently, the 26-year-old picked up the nod on all three scorecards over Martine Michieletto.
