SKYE NICOLSON LANDS WORLD TITLE FIGHT IN VEGAS; YAFAI AND CASTRO JOIN CARD

Australian boxing sensation Skye Nicolson is set to headline a thrilling night of action in Las Vegas as she faces Sarah Mahfoud for the vacant WBC World Featherweight title on April 6 at the BleauLive Theater at Fontainebleau Las Vegas. The event will be streamed live worldwide on DAZN.

Nicolson, boasting an undefeated record of 9-0 with 1 KO, has rapidly climbed the ranks to secure her shot at the world title. Her journey to this moment has been marked by hard work and dedication, culminating in her rise to the top of the WBC rankings at 126lbs. With her recent KO win over Lucy Wildheart, Nicolson has proven herself ready for the world stage.

“This means everything to me,” expressed Nicolson. “To fight for my first World title in the iconic boxing city of Las Vegas is truly special. It will be a proud moment for my family and my team – and on April 6, my lifelong dream of becoming a World Champion will finally become a reality.”

In the opposite corner stands Sarah Mahfoud, a seasoned veteran with a record of 14-1 with 3 KOs. Despite a setback against Amanda Serrano, Mahfoud is determined to reclaim her status as a world champion. With both fighters hungry for victory, their clash promises to be a thrilling spectacle.

“It is a dream of mine to become a two-time World champion,” declared Mahfoud. “And it is also a dream of mine to box in Las Vegas on the biggest stage. Skye Nicolson is a good fighter, but she’s not proven at world-level like me. I will teach her a lesson and show her the levels on April 6.”

In addition to Nicolson’s title fight, the card will feature Olympic gold medalist Galal Yafai defending his WBC International Flyweight title against Agustin Mauro. Yafai, undefeated with a record of 6-0 with 4 KOs, aims to solidify his status as a top contender in the division.

“It’s great to be fighting in Las Vegas for the first time in my career,” said Yafai. “I know that Agustin is confident and that’s perfect for me, I want someone that believes they can win, as that will bring the best out of me.”

Rounding out the lineup is Marc Castro, who will face Abraham Montoya in a Super-Featherweight bout. Castro, undefeated with a record of 11-0 with 8 KOs, looks to continue his ascent in the sport against the experienced Montoya.

Nicolson, Yafai, and Castro are set to deliver an unforgettable night of boxing in Las Vegas, showcasing their talent on the world stage. With high-stakes matchups and world titles on the line, fight fans can expect nothing short of fireworks come April 6.
