Aussie Women’s boxer Deanha Hobbs, now (8-2), has unfortunately come up short in her quest to become the IBF Female Super-Lightweight World Champion.
In her USA debut, Hobbs challenged first time defending champion Mary McGee (28-3)for McGee’s title. The fight was held at the Civic Centre in Hammond, Indiana and was apart of Lou DiBella promotions. McGee v Hobbs was the Mainevent of the fight card.
Hobbs was able to be competitive in the fight but would lose the fight, via an eighth round tko and give Brisbane based fighter who is now part of Glenn Rushton’s crew, her second professional loss.
Despite her second loss in as many fights, Hobbs in still ranked 13th on boxrec.com on the world rankings for the 140lbs Super-Lightweight division.
There is still plenty of time in 2020 for Hobbs to obtain a win and possibly another world title shot.
In the main undercard fight, former WBO Women’s Super-Light champ Christina Linardatou now (13-2) regained her title that she lost to Lightweight Queen Katie Taylor, in an unanimous decision over French born Brit fighter Prisca Vicot. Linardatou defeated Hobbs for the vacant title in June of last year and a possible Linardatou v Hobbs rematch could be on the cards for 2020.
Either way Hobbs has a big 2020 ahead of her.
