Rhiannon Dixon v Terri Harper: World-title bout set for August

    Lightweight world champion Rhiannon Dixon will defend her WBO belt against fellow Briton Terri Harper at Manchester’s Co-op Live arena on Saturday, 24 August.

    Warrington’s Dixon, 29, is unbeaten in 10 professional fights and will make a first defence of the title she won against Karen Elizabeth Carabajal in April.

    Harper, 27, is the WBA light-middleweight champion and a former super-featherweight champion so will seek to become a three-weight champion in August’s fight.

    “Dixon is someone who I have a lot of respect for, she is very respectful and there’s no horrible ego with her,” Harper said.
