Skye Nicolson World Title Dreams

Skye Nicolson, a Commonwealth Gold medallist and Olympian has been a force to reckon with since her professional debut in March 2022. Her journey to the top has been marked by a series of impressive victories. In 2023 alone, she dominated the ring with four significant wins across global venues including New York, Cardiff, Tijuana, and Dublin.

Her year began with a strategic outpointing of Spain’s Tania Alvarez at Madison Square Garden Theater, earning her the WBC Silver Featherweight Title. Following this, she secured a decision over Peru’s Linda Laura Lecca in Cardiff. The winning streak continued as Nicolson captured the Interim Featherweight World Title in Mexico against Argentina’s Maribel Perez, and concluded the year with a stunning stoppage win against Sweden’s Lucy Wildheart in Ireland.

At 28, Nicolson has been a trailblazer for female boxing in Australia. Speaking at a media event in Brisbane, she expressed her excitement and confidence about the upcoming title fight. “I think Matchroom are working hard to host the fight in Australia, hopefully in Brisbane. Winning my first World Title here would be a dream come true,” Nicolson shared.

Reflecting on her recent victories, Skye Nicolson remains confident in her abilities and is ready to face Mahfoud. “I knew the fight against Wildheart would be a statement. The better the opponent, the better I perform,” she said. Nicolson also addressed Mahfoud’s past performance against Amanda Serrano, confidently stating, “Mahfoud won’t win three rounds against me.”

Skye Nicolson stands poised to not only claim the World Title but also to further cement her status as a leading figure in women’s boxing, especially in Australia. Her journey from an amateur sensation to a potential world champion is a testament to her skill, determination, and the rising profile of women’s boxing globally.
