Katie registered 9 stone 6 pounds and 2 ounces ahead of her fight with Brazil’s Vivane Obenauf who tipped the scales at 9 stone 5 pounds and 9 ounces.
They are due in the ring a little after 9pm tomorrow night in front of an anticipated crowd of 21,000. The bout is Katie’s second professional fight after a successful debut in London a fortnight ago where she stopped Karina Kopinaka in 3 rounds. Obenauf boasts a win over Kopinska having won 9 of her 10 professional fights with 4 of those wins coming inside the distance.
