Eddie Hearn is already eying a unification clash for his newest world champion Ellie Scotney.

The 25-year-old from Catford won the IBF super bantamweight title by dethroning Cherneka Johnson at Wembley Arena on Saturday night.

Given that Scotney was the mandatory challenger for the title, there are no rematch obligations and Hearn told BoxingScene.com they will not be looking for easy defenses.

“I thought it was a brilliant performance from Scotney,” he said.

 “We don’t have to worry about a rematch so we are looking at unifications straight away.”

There are three other champions at super-bantamweight, which is one of the most wide open divisions in the women’s game right now. 

The WBC belt has been held by Yamileth Mercado for four years and six defenses while 17-0 Frenchwoman Segole Lefebvre won the WBO title in April.

But is it the WBA belt that Hearn believes Scotney will get a crack at next as the current holder, Mayerlin Rivas, is signed with Matchroom too.

A few hours after Scotney won her belt in London, Rivas held on to her title via a technical draw with Nazarena Romero, who was badly cut by an accidental clash of heads in the fifth round of their encounter in Buenos Aires.

Depending on how long Romero takes to heal, they may run it back but Hearn stated that he is hoping to make the unification between Rivas and Scotney.

He said: “We are still working out exactly what our next steps are with Scotney.

“But Rivas is with us and she is an exceptional fighter. That would be a great fight between the two of them and it should be a straightforward one to make.”
