World Boxing Association (WBA) women’s bantamweight champion Nina Hughes is the WBA Women’s Boxer of the Month, while undisputed bantamweight champion Claressa Shields won the Honorable Mention for June. 

The women’s rankings of the pioneer body were published this Saturday, July 1, with all the corresponding changes and movements, in addition to the awards given by the WBA to the most outstanding women of each month. 

In the sixth month of the year, Nina Hughes was awarded because she made the first defense of her belt against Katie Healy on June 10. The Briton won a unanimous decision at Wembley Arena with a great domination of the fight and a wide difference on the scorecards.
