About


Natasha Jonas, born on June 18, 1984, is a prominent British professional boxer celebrated for her accomplishments across weight divisions and as a trailblazer in women’s boxing. Her journey in the ring spans both amateur and professional realms, marked by significant victories and historic moments.

Her entry into the world of boxing occurred in 2005, and by 2010, she had already clinched an impressive five ABA Championships in the 64 kg Division for Liverpool’s Rotunda ABC. A pivotal moment arrived in 2009 when Jonas made history as the first female boxer to compete for GB Boxing. That same year, she secured gold in the 64 kg division at the Women’s European Union Amateur Boxing Championships, triumphing over Csilla Csejtei of Hungary in a memorable final. Her prowess continued to shine as she claimed another gold at the inaugural GB Amateur Boxing Championships in 2010, securing a thrilling victory over Amanda Coulson in front of her home fans at Liverpool’s Echo Arena.

The pinnacle of her amateur career unfolded at various prestigious championships. In 2011, she earned a bronze medal in the light-welterweight division at the European Championships. The following year, Jonas clinched another bronze in the lightweight category at the AIBA World Championships in 2012. Her exceptional skills propelled her to a silver medal in the light-welterweight division at the 2014 European Championships, further solidifying her reputation as a force to be reckoned with in the amateur boxing circuit.

A groundbreaking moment arrived in May 2012 at the AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships in Qinhuangdao, China, where Natasha Jonas etched her name in history. Her remarkable performance in the tournament made her the first-ever female British boxer to qualify for the Olympic Games. This achievement culminated in a bronze medal, securing her place in the 2012 London Olympics and bringing pride back to Liverpool.

At the 2012 Olympic Games, Jonas made history once more, becoming the inaugural British female boxer to compete at such a prestigious event. Her initial triumph came in the round of 16, where she decisively defeated Quanitta Underwood of the United States with a score of 21:13, dominating three out of the four rounds boxed. However, her journey met a formidable challenge in the quarter-finals against Ireland’s flag-bearer and four-time World Champion, Katie Taylor. Jonas faced a tough loss against Taylor with a score of 26:15, concluding her Olympic campaign.

Transitioning into the realm of professional boxing, Jonas continued to showcase her incredible talent. In 2022, she attained remarkable success, becoming a two-weight world champion by securing the unified WBC and WBO female light-middleweight titles, further solidifying her status as a remarkable athlete in the world of boxing. Natasha Jonas remains an inspiring figure, a trailblazer for women in boxing, and a testament to perseverance, skill, and dedication in the sport.
