Boxing Fight: Natasha Jonas’ next year might be even more significant.
The Liverpudlian defeated Marie-Eve Dicaire on Saturday night in Manchester to unify the WBO and WBC super-welterweight titles as well as the IBF crown.
Dicaire was stunned by Jonas’ speed and punching power, but the Canadian still used her size and strength well, turning their world title match into a 10-round brawl that Jonas ultimately won by unanimous decision.
“Marie-Eve Dicaire brushed off some excellent shots I delivered to her and simply returned. When a fighter is injured, that is sometimes when they are at their most ferocious and aggressive. I needed to be savvy, “Jonas told Sky Sports.
When we got near, I was adamant that she wouldn’t bully me and me around the ring.
“I was attempting to show her that I was equally as strong. You could be bigger than you appear. But my strength is equal.
“That’s proper old school – was a good WBC world champion [in her last fight],” her trainer Joe Gallagher continued. Two world championships in ten weeks.
After defeating Dicaire, Jonas has choices. She had the ability to defend her titles while also regressing by losing weight.
“She desires a rematch with Katie Taylor. For all the [welterweight] belts, Jessica McCaskill is what she wants. Claressa Shields [at super-welter] is what she wants. She believes she has finished everything “Ben-Shalom, her promoter, spoke to Sky Sports.
In a thrilling Olympic quarterfinal in London 2012, Jonas first faced Katie Taylor in boxing. Later, as professionals, they competed for Taylor’s undisputed lightweight title. The first women’s boxing match to serve as the stadium’s main event may be a rematch.
“The conflict that makes the most sense if we’re all considering our options is that one. We witnessed Shields-actions. Marshall’s If we step back and ask, “How do we make something really special,” Katie Taylor and Claressa Shields are the two biggest stars in women’s boxing, and I believe Jonas is the biggest name currently from England “said Shalom.
“According to me, the fight will draw the most interest from casual fans and the largest crowds. Given the support Natasha received on Sky and, obviously, Katie Taylor’s location, I believe the battle will get the most audience at this time. We can therefore make that fight if they are reasonable on the other side.
It must be appealing to Katie, said, Shalom. “We have great regard for Katie Taylor. She will have witnessed Tasha Jonas’ ascent over the previous year, and I believe Tasha Jonas is the fight for her if she wants to leave a lasting impression, win the biggest fight possible, and give fans something to get excited about.
“I don’t think I have anything against Natasha Jonas fighting Katie Taylor at Croke Park,” I said.
