Terri Harper v Alycia Baumgardner Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions

Terri Harper has finally recovered her hand injury and will be looking to make up for lost time when she puts her WBC and IBO female super featherweight titles on the line.

The 25-year-old was scheduled to fight WBA super featherweight champion Hyun Mi Choi back in May at the Manchester Arena, but she injured her hand in training.

She is now back to full fitness and will be looking to send a message to the likes of Choi and WBO & IBF super featherweight champion Mikaela Mayer that she runs the super featherweight division.

Harper is a pocket rocket. She has no quit in her. The Doncaster boxer can be tactical and fight the perfect fight, or she can get involved in a dogfight and she will probably come out on top in that.

Her trainer Stefy Bull knows what he is doing in terms of her progression. We all want to see her go up a against Mayer, but Bull will make sure she keeps ticking over and will only face the American when she is 100% ready.

Harper has a professional record of 12 fights, 11 wins and one draw. Her only draw was against Natasha Jonas in one of the best female fights ever. A lot of people thought Harper lost that fight, but she showed plenty of heart and that is what got her hand raised at the end.

She takes on Alycia Baumgardner on Saturday evening, and no offence to the American, but I cannot see her causing Harper many problems.

Baumgardner has only been beaten once in her professional career – a points loss against Christina Linardatou. She has won her last four fights.

This will be Baumgardner’s toughest fight yet, and Harper will be looking to shine brightly and prove she is the woman to beat.

A convincing win will certainly get the attention of Mayer. I am backing Harper to be too strong and quick for Baumgardner and I expect her to stop this one late. I am tipping Harper to get an eighth-round stoppage.

Terri Harper v Alycia Baumgardner Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions: Fighter’s Predictions

Terri Harper: “The unification fight is going to come around a lot sooner than everyone thinks. I’ve got my mandatory screaming Elhem Mekhaled out that she wants the fight, but when she was offered the fight for November 13th, she came back saying she wanted more time. As soon as I’ve had this fight, I’m going to have a week off and straight back to it. Christmas is cancelled and I’m looking to be back out January/February time. I want to get back on track, I’ve had plenty of time off, I’m fully focused on what needs to be done. We were told the Choi fight was still there for when I came back, but Choi recently had a fight, and they said they wanted more time which was understandable. She wanted a full training camp in America, it was too quick of a turnaround for her, so she said next year. When that fell through, we wanted to get the mandatory out the way, so we offered the fight. That’s when we were left with looking for a respectable opponent, Andrew had put a few names forward, a few offers were made, a couple had declined. I respect Alycia for agreeing to fight at six weeks’ notice.”
