McMahon: I am not going into this title fight in the dark

IT might seem a risk, taking a win or bust fight at nigh on a weeks notice, but Christina McMahon explains she knows more about her opponent in an International WBC title fight, that could act as World title eliminator, than her foe’s team know about her.

Aniya Seki, who the Monaghan lady fights in Germany this weekend for the right to be crowned WBC International bantamweight champion , has been on McMahon’s radar for some time now.

She has followed the Japanese former  WBC Sliver champion’s career for some time and is adamant she isn’t going into Saturday’s clash blind.

“I’ve known about this girl for two years when she fought for a world title. I offered to fight her then but it didn’t happen so she’s been on my radar for quite a while,” McMahon 42.ie.

“The thing is though, you’ll see a lot of footage of her on YouTube but you won’t see any of my fights up there. We — my coaches and I — don’t want to give anything away.”

McMahon has indicated that she will hang up her gloves if she manages to buckle a World title around her waist, may get the opportunity to become Ireland’s first professional female World champ.

Win on Saturday the Carrickmacross native will be in pole position to fight Yazmín Rivas for the WBC World Bantamweight title.
