Skye Nicolson Looking To Make A Statement Against Sarah Mahfoud

Skye Nicolson is looking to make a statement when she faces Sarah Mahfoud on Saturday in Las Vegas.

Nicolson is 9-0 as a pro and coming off a TKO win over Lucy Wildheart to retain her interim WBC featherweight title. She will be fighting for the vacant WBC featherweight title now, and Nicolson is ready to make a statement.

“I want to show the world what I have been doing in the gym,” Nicolson said (via BoxingScene). “We have reached new levels and I am very excited to showcase that. I do want to make a statement win because this girl is No. 2 in the world. She was the next best option after we couldn’t get the [Amanda] Serrano fight. She had a competitive fight with Serrano, winning three rounds against her. That will not be happening this weekend, and if I fight how I have been sparring, the fight won’t go the distance.”

Skye Nicolson believes she has been born to box and thinks this will be the performance that shows it. Although it not the Amanda Serrano fight she wanted, the 28-year-old believes she will put her full skills to the test on Saturday.

If you stop learning, then you should stop boxing,” Nicolson said. “There is always something to learn, room for improvement, and things at which you can get better. I think I am very experienced because I have been boxing since I was 12-years-old. I don’t think many [female] boxers have been boxing for as long as I have. I have been doing this for more than half my life, so I bring a lot of ring experience despite being in my infancy in my pro career. I have had 150 amateur fights, so I have definitely spent some time in the ring. My natural abilities, reflexes, reading distance, and timing are my strengths, so I’m quite blessed to have those when I face the other girls.” 

Do you think Skye Nicolson will win?
