Kirstie Bavington will face Kandi Wyatt on March 10 for the World Boxing Association (WBA) Intercontinental welterweight title at The Hangar Events Venue in Wolverhampton, England.
The Brit, who is looking to break into boxing’s elite, will face Canadian Wyatt, a former world title challenger who has been on a layoff and now feels ready for her return to the ring.
Bavington has gone from strength to strength in her career and comes into this bout on a four-fight winning streak. The 30-year-old knows that beating an opponent of Wyatt’s caliber will help her in her quest to continue her rise.
For the Canadian, it is a fight in which she wants to prove that she can continue competing at a high level after two years without stepping into the ring and after three straight losses. However, it is worth noting that those lost fights were against world champions like Jessica McCaskill or Kali Reis.
Bavington has a record of 7 wins, 2 losses, 2 draws and 2 knockouts, while Wyatt has 10 wins, 4 losses and 3 knockouts.
