Abbots Langley boxer Shannon Courtenay had little time to enjoy her hard-earned win against Jasmina Nad recently as her fifth fight was announced shortly after.

Having beat Nad in her fourth super-bantamweight bought in late October, the Baby Face Assassin will take on her next opponent on December 19 at Matchroom Boxing’s NXTGEN Series event at York Hall, live on Sky Sports.

Her opponent has yet to be named, but the 25-year-old will be feeling confident after overcoming her toughest rival to date in October. 

Shannon 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. 

Courtenay said the fight was a “very good learning curve” for her. 

Clearly the pressure of becoming a prominent competitor isn’t changing the young star’s attitude – she tweeted following the NXTGEN fight announcement.
