Undefeated Terri Harper, 24, looked sensational as she stopped Norway's Katharina Thanderz in nine rounds to retain her WBC and IBO 130lbs crowns last time out in November at The SSE Arena, Wembley on the undercard of Katie Taylor’s win over Miriam Gutierrez.
‘Belter’ clung onto her belts after a thrilling draw with Natasha Jonas at Matchroom Fight Camp back in August, but the 24-year-old produced a far more composed performance to ruthlessly halt her mandatory challenger Thanderz in just her 12th fight.
30-year-old Choi is the longest-reigning world ruler in women’s boxing. She beat China’s Chunyan Xu on her professional debut in October 2008 to claim the vacant WBA Featherweight crown before making seven defences of her World Title in the following five years.
The South Korean became a two-weight World Champion when she landed the WBA Super-Featherweight Title against Thailand’s Siriwan Thongmanit in May 2014, and most recently defended it against Calista Silgado on her Matchroom debut at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
Terri Harper: “It’s exciting that our dream of becoming Undisputed Super-Featherweight World Champion is taking a step closer to reality with my first unification fight. I’m looking forward to the step-up and fighting an undefeated champion.
“Choi is the longest-reigning female World Champion and it will be an honour to share the ring with her. I’m more than ready. I’ve been training for this fight since the new year, even with my broken hand. I don’t just want to win; I want to win in style and make a statement.”
Hyun-Mi Choi: “I have waited a very long time for the opportunity to fight for the WBC belt. I am so excited and looking forward to it. My goal has been to unify my weight division for many years and now the time has finally come.
“I know this fight in England will not be easy. Fighting in another country is extremely difficult but I am prepared for this adventure and challenge. I truly hope the best fighter will win. I have prepared for this opportunity my whole boxing career.”
Tim Rickson, BBN Editor: “I think this wll be a huge task for both females. I believe that Harper has had the harder world title fights than Choi, so I think the Brit will have an advantage due to the recent level of opposition she has overcome. I think it will be a good battle that Harper will edge on points."
