Ham Seo Hee says his walkout song reflected his desire to beat Denice Zamboanga


Ham Seo Hee usually has an upbeat entry whenever she fights, but she did a full 180 when she came out at ONE X at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. The South Korean veteran wore a menacing look as she approached the ONE Championship circle in her rematch against Denice Zamboanga of the Philippines at the 10 Years of the ONE Championship show.

A bleak feeling enveloped the arena during Ham’s walkout and she said her entrance music reflected her attitude towards the fight.

Hamzang said:

“All these years I’ve been known to have fun there, have fun, you know. My mood is still there, but for this fight, I had something to prove. It wasn’t about having fun there, it was about showing that I could beat her and that I was the winner. I wanted to show that with my music and with my emotions and with my facial expression… I wanted people to see and I really wanted to prove them wrong.

Ham and Zamboanga first met in September 2021 at the ONE Women’s Atomweight World Grand Prix, and it was a controversial split decision win for the former Rizin and ROAD FC champion.

Half of the audience felt that Zamboanga deserved the win for being the aggressor and that Ham was content to counter his opponent. Ham fed the criticism and she made sure she would get a decisive win over Zamboanga in their rematch.

The 35-year-old used her superior wrestling against her opponent who is 10 years younger than her, crushing the match in every way possible. She says:

“I clearly won and everything is behind now. I have no more controversies. I want to rest a bit and recover.


It’s always a matter of respect for Ham Seo Hee

Ham Seo Hee and Denice Zamboanga have been feuding since their controversial fight in 2021, but the South Korean insisted she doesn’t hate her young opponent.

Although she might not like him very much, Ham Seo Hee says she doesn’t harbor any grudges towards Zamboanga:

“I don’t hate anyone. I do not [hate] athletes or whatever, but at the same time, I don’t like it. I respect her and just hope all the athletes are okay.”

Ham and Zamboanga competed on the second map of ONE’s three-map extravangaza at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
