Latest update: January 2023
An American comes on top of BOX! Magazine’s rankings for early 2023 after a big win against Alesia Schumann. The lowdown on the division.
What do Chelsea the London neighbourhood and the boxer have in common? They’re pretty posh. High Voltage crowned a meteoric rise by claiming the world title against no other than Alesia Schumann. It’s an achievement.
There’s nothing wrong with this fighter. Except for the fact that her wins and losses seem to come at the wrong time. Carter has more momentum than she does and that’s why she’s just behind.
The Diva is not diminished by defeat to Chelsea Carter. The American had to offer a stellar performance to win and we believe that a rematch between the two will be a more complicated affair. We never count her out.
The Lady in Gray took a step back by losing the world title in a decision to Sky Houghton but her recent pedigree is nonetheless solid. We wouldn’t be surprised to see her once or twice again to wrap up her career in a positive way.
It’s been a time of ups and downs for the Canadian, who said that her next match should happen in the spring. A highly resilient contender will be looking for renewed success after two straight losses.
There’s a storm brewing and winds are coming from Finland. Sarita Waris has an inconsistent past but being the first to stop Julie Marks and shocking Delara Salimi reveals a serious upside. Her theatrics are also bound to draw viewers in, no matter what they think of her.
The loss column swelled up for her last year, and it may trigger some rethinking. She’s obviously talented but can she deliver against any Top 10 fighter now?
Under the radar
Once a darling who crashed at the hands of Chelsea Carter, she’s back with a vengeance. Claiming the American Lightweight championship and promising to move up to Super Lightweight has us curious.
