Abbots Langley boxer Shannon Courtenay narrowly won her fourth fight last night (October 26) against Jasmina Nad by a point.
The Babyface Assassin had to dig deep against her Serbian opponent who “threw the kitchen sink” at her under the spotlights inside the O2 Arena where she won 39-38 on the score cards.
Shannon battled Jasmina who has beaten some of the top boxers in her Super Bantamweight division and said the win was a “very good learning curve” for her.
Speaking to Boxing Social, Shannon said: “She was really, really tough. She through the kitchen sink at me from the off which was not predicted and not at all what we’ve seen previously from her footage so it took me off guard a little bit.
“I should have started a lot sooner and then especially in rounds three and four I showed my class; making her miss, hurling my hands low, catching some lovely upper cuts and showed her what I can do. It’s good because it shows I can fight and I can box so a very good learning curve and it was a big step up for me in just four fights.
“She’s has a very good record and come off the back off defeating four undefeated girls. I’m happy – it was a really good performance.”
