A trailblazer in women’s boxing, Hannah Rankin made history when she became Scotland’s first female boxing world champion.
Rankin (9-4) became a professional boxer in 2017. Not only is she a boxer, but an accomplished basoonist. The 29-year-old teaches during this time of quarantine. She also thinks about reclaiming the IBO Super-Welterweight Championship. Rankin is ready to do whatever it takes to face Patricia Berghult once again.
