In the search for opportunities to achieve their goals, fighters are testing themselves. Such is the case of the experienced Jorgelina Guanini, who will now test herself again at 122 pounds. On this occasion, on February 12, she will fight against young Ellie Scotney for the vacant WBA Super Bantamweight Intercontinental belt at the Alexandra Palace in London. 

In December last year, the boxer representing Argentina, Guanini, had already disputed this same title but in the featherweight category and lost to the Spanish Jennifer Miranda. Only two months later, she will seek a rematch, but now in the weight at which she started her professional career and where she has had a world championship shot. 

The boxer born in Neochea, a city in the south of the province of Buenos Aires, located on the Argentine Atlantic coast, settled in Spain in search of expanding learning and possibilities. In September 2018, she became the IBF super flyweight world champion by defeating her compatriot Débora Dionicius on the cards. Undoubtedly, the best fight of her career. She managed to make a successful defense the following year, but then some inconveniences led her to take new horizons. With a great experience accumulated in 9 victories with 1 by knockout, 3 setbacks and 2 draws, and having already tested herself in super bantamweight against Rachel Ball, on March 12 she will try again to win a belt. 

On the other hand, Scotney, 23 years old and who will be the local of the event, will has young record of 3 fights won by points so far. Backed by a rich amateur career, has a stylized technique, Scotney will have the first opportunity to dispute a belt, in this case the intercontinental black and gold.
