Healy Wins Second Contest

Former Kickboxing champion Katie Healy won her second professional boxing match at the Ponds Forge Arena Sheffield (27.8.21). Healy took on the highly experienced Karina Kopinska in a four-round contest on the undercard of the Tomlinson, Jardon IBO Intercontinental Welterweight title fight. Healy put on an excellent display in a shut-out victory winning all four rounds which were being streamed live on Fightzone TV.

The contest was in the super Featherweight division with Healy weighing in 8 stone 12 and Kopinska coming in 9 stone 1. Healy stayed claim as Kopinska let her hands go with lots of aggression in the first round, Healy won the round with great movement and nice jabs. Healy used her movement and jab well in the second as Kopinska continued to press and get shot off. Great movement and counter-punching in the third from Healy as Kopinska continued to move forward and put the pressure on. Kopinska did not stop coming forward and pressed with aggressive intent as Healy moved well going to head and body with great shots win with a shut-out victory. Referee John Latham scored it 40 to 36 to Healy and I had it the same.

Dexter’s Thought’s

Another impressive performance by Katie Healy against a very experienced opponent in Kopinska. Her opponent never stopped coming forward and Healy’s movement shot selection and countering were there for all to see as she showed her class. It is still early in Healy’s pro boxing career but the form Kickboxing champion is looking like she has the goods to mix it up with the highest level of female boxers, and with BcB Promotions, Fightzone, and her trainer Gavin Burrows behind her the future is looking bright for Healy.
