Hearn Sets the Stage for Jonas vs. Ryan

On March 23 in Sheffield, United Kingdom, a bout took place between British boxers Sandy Ryan (7-1-1, 3 KOs) and Terri Harper (14-2-2, 6 KOs) for the WBO light middleweight title (up to 66.67 kg).

Ryan emerged victorious via corner retirement after the fourth round. Following the fight, Sandy's promoter Eddie Hearn announced his readiness to arrange a match for his fighter against IBF champion Natasha Jonas (15-2-1, 9 KOs).
