‘Matchroom Fight Camp’ II Results: Terri Harper Vs. Natasha Jonas
Week two of “Matchroom Fight Camp” is set to take place for Matchroom Boxing. At the top of the card will feature a young fighter looking to prove she is ready to be a star.
Taking place in the backyard of Matchroom’s U.K. office in Essex, London, the main event of “Fight Camp” will be Terri Harper defending her WBC and IBO Super-Featherweight Titles against Natasha Jonas.
Harper (10-0) signed a promotional deal with Matchroom Boxing in 2019, making her debut against Viviane Obenauf that November. She beat Obenauf via unanimous decision to retain the IBO Super-Featherweight Title she won from Nozipho Bell. In the biggest fight of her career so far, Harper beat Eva Wahlstrom this February to win the WBC Super-Featherweight Title.
Believing she has the ultimate advantage against Jonas (9-1), Harper believes Jonas’ amateur career won’t come into play. With a win, Harper would be closer to her goals of fighting in America and her hero, Katie Taylor.
Jonas turned professional in 2017 and had her six-fight win streak snapped by Obenauf. As a result, she lost the WBA International Super-Featherweight Title. She has since won three in a row, last beating Bianka Majlath. With an impressive amateur record of 51-24, as well as being a bronze medalist in the 2012 World Championships and a silver medalist in the 2014 European Championships, Jonas believes if she gives her all she can stop the momentum of Harper.
