While a lot of focus on women's boxing surrounds Katie Taylor's recent debut in the professional, another Irish professional fighter Christina McMahon has also been making the news.
McMahon, who landed the interim WBC Title in 2015, then lost a defence fight in Mexico in early 2016 with a contentious decision awarding the fight to her opponent Zulina Munoz.
Requests were submitted for a rematch and initial correspondences from the WBC indicated that it would happen in Ireland. But it never materialised leaving McMahon very frustrated so much so that she communicated strong words of criticism against the WBC.
The Monaghan boxer then transferred to the WBA (World Boxing Association) and a super flyweight world title fight was promised to her.
It was to have been staged last night at the National Stadium in Dublin. However the fight was cancelled, due to her opponent Linda Laura Lecca's withdrawal for what has been described as 'unspecified reasons.'
McMahon, speaking to Darren Frehill and John Murray on RTE Radio's Sunday Sport, spoke about her experience of women's professional Boxing to date and revealed that her shot at the WBA World title will happen next March in Dublin.
