Stefy Bull, manager and trainer of WBC, IBO super featherweight champion Terri Harper, believes his boxer can become undisputed in her weight class within two fights.
Harper was in action back in November, when she stopped mandatory challenger Katharina Thanderz at Matchroom’s Fight Camp in Brentwood.
Bull reveals that terms have been agreed for Harper to face WBA titleholder Hyun-Mi Choi in a unification showdown.
Should Harper win against Choi, Bull hopes to match her against the winner of a potential unification between WBO champion Mikaela Mayer and IBF champion Maiva Hamadouche – which is rumored for May.
“We need to see these unifications on the road to undisputed. Eddie has made it vocal that’s the goal, to make female champions undisputed. The goal now is to fight the other champions. If Terri is fighting Choi next, then there is talk that Mikaela Mayer and her team are in talks with Hamadouche for a unification,” Bull said to Sky Sports.
“An undisputed fight is literally two fights away. It can happen. If Hamadouche is willing to travel over to America to fight Mayer and Terri is fighting Choi, you’ve basically got the semi-finals and then the winners for all the marbles. That’s how close it is. I think potentially we are two fights away from an undisputed championship of the world.”
Hamadouche’s co-promoter, Christian Cherchi, confirmed that there are ongoing negotiations for his boxer to face Mayer – but also cautions that nothing has been finalized.
“We are in talks with Matchroom, with Top Rank, for a possible unification fight for next May in the United States,” Cherchi told Sky Sports. “But nothing is set for the moment, we are in negotiations.
“Hamadouche, she wants a unification fight. She was ready to fight the WBA champion and Terri Harper as well. It is the natural fight (undisputed), we have to do it. It only makes sense to do these two fights to have an undisputed champion.”
