Price and Artingstall become pro

Boxxer has also made several waves in women’s boxing with the double signing of Lauren Price and Karriss Artingstall, which was announced Saturday night.

It was fitting that Price’s professional deal was announced on Marshall’s undercard, where the Hartlepool fighter had proved such an inspiration – and in fact, Price once beat her as an amateur.

However, asked by I if she ever wanted to meet Marshall again, the Welsh fighter said she was too “small to middleweight” on a professional level.

“When I started on the amateur stage, welterweight was not about and I was ranked in middleweight, so I won a few medals and became world No. 1, so it made sense to stay there,” she said.

“In the pros I will go down to welterweight.

“I’ve been on stage with Savannah and Claressa and what they’ve done and put it on the map, in 2012 and Rio, and now the standard is just getting better and better. Savannah headlines are not only great for women boxing, it’s great for women’s sports.

“Me and Sav are really moving forward, and right now we are in two different weight classes. It’s not something I’ve thought about. I just want to concentrate on my career. ”

Artingstall, a former soldier who won one bronze medal in Tokyo 2020 and has since bought a house with Price, her partner, will also change weight class, saying she will debut in featherweight but may move down to superbantam weight.

“I would say it’s a little busier on the super-drill than feathers for me, so I want to see where I fit in,” she said. “I see pretty much every boxing show that gets broadcast, so I know pretty much all the female fighters that are around.

“In my head I always went to the Commonwealth Games, but I did not realize how much women’s boxing is growing among the professionals. Of course, I took the medal, and then everyone jumped in a way for us, promoters, managers, people we had not even heard of before, just sent messages to us. ”
