Sandy Ryan v Terri Harper - Which belts are on the line?

Ryan's WBO featherweight title will be on the line in Sheffield as the English fighter makes the second defence of her prized 147lbs title. 

Sandy Ryan's record

6-1-1 (2 KOs)

Sandy Ryan has only had eight professional fights to date, but my word, she's more than made her mark on the professional fighting game.

A relative latecomer to the professional scene at the age of 28, Ryan always appeared destined to become a world champion - a feat she went on to achieve in just her seventh pro fight!

A lopsided points success over Marie Pier House fulfilled her goal of becoming a world champion, before she stepped up a class in her first defence when she shared the ring with pound-for-pound star Jessica McCaskill.

Whilst she was unable to unify titles in the welterweight division, she remained unbeaten with the judges all scoring the September 2023 bout differently.

A 97-93 card in favour of McCaskill was countered by a 94-96 success for Ryan, with the third judge scoring the bout a 95-95 draw; ensuring both fighters retained their titles and remained world champions.

The Derby-born fighter will be hoping she comes through her forthcoming showdown with Harper with her belt-in-tow, too.

Terri Harper's record

14-2-1 (6 KOs)

Terri Harper will be hoping to become one of only a select number of fighters to have captured world titles in three different weight classes when she returns to action in March.

The popular Sheffield fighter is the current WBA and IBO super-welterweight title holder, having previously held the WBC and IBO super-featherweight straps prior to her defeat to Alycia Baumgardner in 2001.

That devastating defeat at the same arena she will take to when she tackles Ryan on 23rd March remains the one and only loss on her professional record; although one that does also include a couple of controversial draws too.

Many had expected Natasha Jonas to get the decision when the pair fought out a classic lockdown contest at the height of Covid-19, only for the judges to score the bout a draw, before history repeated itself in Harper's last outing against Cecilia Braekhus in October 2023.

The odds suggest this will be the biggest challenge of Harper's career to date, against a fearsome opponent, but she will be hoping she can once again rise to the challenge and make further boxing history by landing a world title in a third weight division.
