Berghult unity rally in Liverpool


Natasha Jonas insists she’s happy about her next fight – despite not securing a match against Hannah Rankin.

Liverpool’s superweight holds the WBO world championship belt in the weight division and has been hoping to meet WBA and IBO champions Rankin in a reunification match later this year.

Jonas (11-2-1, 8 KOs) won the title with a stunning knockout at Manchester Arena in February, ending Chris Namus’s challenge in two innings under Mr. Kell Brook’s victory over Amir Khan.

And the 38-year-old, now under the tutelage of Ben Shalom and Boxxer, quickly turned her attention to Rankin.

Scot has considered an offer to meet ‘Miss GB’ later this year. That is until it became clear that Terri Harper would enter the weight class.

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

The match will be Jonas’s first match in her home city as world champion and will take place at the M&S Bank Arena, as part of the supporting cast in Liam’s return to Liverpool. Smith meets former IBO champion Hassan Mwakinyo.
