Bergault’s fusion show in Liverpool

Bergault’s fusion show in Liverpool


Natasha Jonas insists she’s excited about her next fight – even if she can’t get a show with Hannah Rankin.

The Liverpool super-welterweight holds the WBO world title and was hoping to meet WBA and IBO champion Rankin in a unification show later this year.

Jonas (11-2-1, 8 KOs) won the belt at the Manchester Arena in February with a stunning knockout, ending a two-round challenge of Chris Namus on the undercard. Kyle Brook defeated Amir Khan.

And the 38-year-old southpaw, now at the helm of Ben Shalom and Boxer, quickly turned her attention to Rankin.

The Scot has been weighing up offers to win ‘Miss GB’ later this year. It was until it became clear that Terry Harper would enter the weight room.

Patricia Berglett (15-0, 3 KOs), the WBC heavyweight champion, is now next on the list for Jonas on September 3rd, exclusively on Sky Sports.

The fight will be Jonas’ first in his home town as a world champion and will take place at the M&S Bank Arena, as part of the support for Lim Smith’s Liverpool return against former IBO champion Hassan Mwakinyo.
