Stephen Loman Aims To Capture The Belt And Bring It Home In 2023

Stephen “The Sniper” Loman believes that he’s done all he could in 2022, and now he’s looking to use that momentum to make 2023 an even grander year for himself.

Loman believes he’s ready to take the next step in his career after claiming two big wins last year, beating Japanese veteran Shoko Sato and routing former ONE Bantamweight World Champion Bibiano “The Flash” Fernandes.

“I’d look at it as a very good year,” Loman said.

“[2022] brought me some of the biggest victories of my career, and I achieved my goals to take everything step by step, move my way up in the rankings, and beat some of the biggest names in the division. That year was a very good achievement for me.”

The past 12 months also taught Loman some valuable lessons, especially in his fights against Sato and Fernandes.

However, he knows that he’s going to have to grow, as he could face the winner of the Fabricio Andrade-John Lineker clash for the ONE Bantamweight World Title this February.

“I’ve learned a lot this year. Having fought both Shoko Sato and Bibiano Fernandes, I’ve seen that there will be no easy fights here. Both of them are veterans, and I’ve had to step up my game quickly,” he said.

“This year also taught me to push harder, persevere, knowing that the ones that I’ll be facing here are high-level veterans, so I have to push hard during training.”

With his 2022 mission accomplished, Loman is setting the bar higher this year. In fact, he plans to end the next twelve months with the ONE Bantamweight World Title around his waist.

“My goal in 2023 is to stay active, stay in tip-top condition, and the most important of it all, capture the championship belt. [I want] a chance to compete for that belt and bring that belt home.”
