ALYCIA BAUMGARDNER

She just made her professional debut on March 4th, 2017 and she has only had six fights to her credit, but she has already earned a nickname, « the Bomb ». And this, as soon as her first fight held during the Arnold (for Schwarzenegger) Sports Festival in Columbus, not far from her hometown of Fremont, Ohio. Opposed to Britain Hart, 27 years old, Alycia Baumgardner needed only… 2 minutes and 38 seconds to impose her law through an onslaught of powerful right hooks. Her next three opponents will have the same fate : KO ! Then, after 165 amateur fights and 4 wins in the pros, the young American is offered the opportunity, on February 10th, 2018, to fight for a belt, the WBC (World Boxing Council International Female) super featherweight (130 lbs) one. She wins by unanimous decision against Nydia Feliciano. On April 27th, Alycia Baumgardner wins her first title defense against Kirstie Simmons. At 23, the whole future can be hers.   By Ludovic Mauchien
