“I will make her bleed” – Aina Abbey


At the Zenith Metropole in Nantes, France, Aina Abbey the WBF International champion will be facing IBO Intercontinental and WBC Youth World champion Jeyssa Marcel in a female bantamweight clash on April 12 2024.

The both undefeated boxers will be wearing their belts in line of the eight rounds of action of their bout in Western France.

Aina Abbey, who is currently having her training session at the Police College in Ikeja, Lagos is expecting a tough bout against her opponent.

“I just finished 15 rounds of sparring,” she said on Thursday.

“I invited some girls from Ogun State to come and spar with me in Lagos. It is a tough fight because she is number one in her country in our weight category and I am going to fight her there.”

‘Iron Abbey’, however, remains confident in her ability to leave the ring with both the WBF and IBO belts in tow.

“It is a challenge like any good fight but I still have the belief that I am going to win against her, I want to defeat her even more especially because I know it is going to be in hostile ground for me,” the 27-year-old said.

“I have promised my manager Ibrahim Fijabi that I will make the girl bleed,” Abbey added. “I am very determined because I want to bring the glory back to Nigeria.”

Abbey told the newsmen that she would be travelling from Nigeria to France for the bout on April 10, two days before she would face one of her toughest challenges in the ring.

The Nigerian holds an undefeated professional boxing record of 11 wins and nine knockouts while the Frenchwoman holds a record of 12 wins and two knockouts.
