Chelsea “High Voltage” Carter, aged 24, is the defending champion and ranked number 5 worldwide as a Super Lightweight by BOX! Magazine. The explosive boxer has amassed 7 wins, including five knockouts, and one loss as a professional.

“I’ve taken boxing by storm and the strong winds will keep blowing. I expect a great battle with Taylor Grant but despite her skills, she will have to accept that there’s only room for one champion. Me.”
Chelsea Carter

Taylor “Peppermint” Grant, 26, is ranked as number 2 worldwide by BOX! Magazine when coming in as the challenger. The fast puncher boasts an impressive record of 19 wins, 12 of them by way of knockout, and one loss.

“Chelsea Carter is a child in the world of boxing. I am making it a personal mission to school her with a hard beating. She’ll thank me later for showing her what’s missing to become an elite fighter.”
Taylor Grant

“I keep saying that Final Bell is a prime provider of organised violence for a reason, says CEO Heidi Becker. We deliver superb matchups between marquee fighters to delight the fans and make sure that the boxers are fairly treated. This is how we roll.”

Seats at the arena will cost $100 and VIP tables $500, sold exclusively online and redeemable through the Final Bell mobile app.

Straightforward

There were no rumblings in the background in the making of this match. Only contract negotiations since Taylor had already accepted a public challenge by Chelsea. They settled on a 50-50 split of the purse due to the challenger’s appeal drawing attention to the matchup.

There are, however, intense reactions to an anticipated superfight.

Massive, massive match. It wouldn’t be out of place as a world championship. I’m booking my flight and hotel now, and thank @chelseacarter in advance for a free ticket 😆

Pro tip: bring a shield. Chelsea and Taylor are nuclear powers.

Who gets this one? Grant is a dangerous favourite but I say that Carter scores the upset. She’s got that ability to survive even when she shouldn’t.

Either way, the sound of their punches will be exquisite 😍

My prediction: @taylorgrant defeats @chelseacarter

Grant has the faster hands, the more complete game and the most maturity between the two. The perfect collection of assets to endure and come out on top.
