Walsall boxer Rachel Ball is challenging for the vacant WBA Bantamweight title at Wembley Arena this Saturday night.
The 29 year-old Midlander will face Argentine Jorgelina Guanini at the SSE Wembley for a shot at the World Title, in only her eighth professional bout.
“I cant put into words what it would mean for not just myself, but for my team, my gym family and my friends.
“I really want to prove on the night that I can do it.”Rachel Ball to BBC Midlands Today
Guanini has stepped in as a replacement opponent as Ball was originally going to face Ebanie Bridges, but the Australian has withdrawn with an arm injury.
Ball was a three-time world kick-boxing champion before switching to boxing, while Guanini currently holds the IBF super-flyweight belt.
The two fighters faced off in an interview live streamed by Matchroom Boxing on Twitter on Thursday afternoon.
Ball vs Guanini will be part of triple header of women’s world title fights shown live on Sky Sports on November 14th, along with Katie Taylor’s undisputed lightweight title defence vs Miriam Gutierrez and Terri Harper’s WBC super-featherweight title defence vs Katharina Thanderz.
