The Rising Star Caroline Dubois Takes on Argentina’s Yanina Lescano in a Highly-Anticipated Fight at York Hall, London
The lightweight division of women’s boxing has been buzzing with excitement recently as the unbeaten rising star, Caroline Dubois prepares to face off against Argentine boxer, Yanina Lescano. The fight is set to take place at York Hall in the East End of London and will be broadcast live on TV.
Dubois’ impressive record speaks for itself: she has won each of her seven professional fights so far and is keen to continue her streak with this upcoming match. Her opponent, however, is no slouch either – ranked highly by all four major world title sanctioning bodies including WBC (No 2), IBF (No 3) and WBO/WBA (No 6). It’s clear that both fighters are eager for victory.
If Dubois manages to come out on top against such a tough opponent as Lescano, it would certainly put her right up there amongst the best in her weight class. She believes that this win could lead her closer towards securing more high-profile fights and even perhaps a world title shot soon enough!
Aiming High: Dubois Targets Mikaela Mayer Next
Dubois has made no secret about who she wants to face next: America’s very own Mikaela Mayer! As an experienced unified super-featherweight champion who just moved up into Dubois’ weight class; it’s no wonder why Mayer caught Caroline’s eye.
Speaking about Mayer, Dubois said: “As a boxer she’s pushed forward and helped create big fights for females and she’s helped break down those barriers. So it’s someone that I want to be in the ring with and take that from her. When you beat someone, you take their position from them.”
The 22-year-old is excited at the prospect of fighting against such a highly regarded opponent as Mayer, especially after seeing her fight on the undercard of Claressa Shields vs Savannah Marshall bill in October at O2 Arena.
Dubois has set herself some ambitious goals for this year including having five fights; this match against Lescano will be only her second one so far. She believes that if she continues winning, then there’s no reason why she can’t get into a position where they’re fighting for world titles soon enough!
“I feel like when you step in the ring with someone and you beat someone you take their position from them,” Dubois said confidently. “If they’re whatever, you take that from them.”
