Natasha Jonas Likely To Fight For Title On Khan-Lo Greco Card

By Elliot Foster

NATASHA JONAS could fight for a world title later this year.

The 33-year-old former Team GB star, who turned professional last June, heads into the new year with a record which remains unblemished –– and titles are on the agenda.

‘Miss GB’ was last in action in Manchester in December, making it 4-0 with all of them early.

And she is set for a step up in the next few months as the race to a showdown with WBA female lightweight champion Katie Taylor, who Jonas faced as an amateur but has said that she is sick of talking about, hots up.

Promoter Eddie Hearn, speaking at the press conference to announce his April 21 ‘Back To Business’ card at the ECHO Arena, topped by Amir Khan’s long-awaited return against Canada’s Phil Lo Greco, said that Jonas –– who missed the presser due to speaking about women in sport in parliament –– could be in luck sooner rather than later.

“I want her to fight for a world title on this card,” he told Boxing Scene. “She wants to fight for a world title on this bill and so does Joe Gallagher [Jonas’ manager and trainer].

“We’re looking to get her out at the end of February in a warm-up fight and then we hope that we can stick to the plan and deliver the world title shot she wants.”

Jonas will box alongside fellow former Team GB duo –– and Commonwealth Games gold medal-winning pair –– Anthony Fowler and Scott Fitzgerald.

Ryan Mulcahy will defend his Central Area title in a tasty Liverpool vs. Manchester super-lightweight battle against Bilal Rehman and Craig Glover is also expected to box.

Tom Farrell, providing he gets through his March 10 return at the BT Convention Centre unscathed, will make a comeback to the big shows, Conor Benn will fight for the first time this year and former IBF bantamweight champion Paul Butler, who –– provided he wins on Saturday night at the O2 Arena in London –– is expected to face Panama’s Liborio Solis for the vacant WBA ‘regular’ bantamweight world title.

Wow, is Khan Kardashian fighting Natasha Jonas? Should be a 50/50 fight.
