Ellie Scotney Driven by Grandmother’s Memory in Super-Bantamweight Unification Bout


MANCHESTER, England – IBF Super-Bantamweight Champion Ellie Scotney (8-0) seeks to add to her legacy on Saturday, April 13th, as she faces undefeated WBO Champion Segolene Lefebvre (18-0, 1 KO) in a title unification bout at Manchester’s AO Arena. The fight, broadcast live worldwide on DAZN, marks Scotney’s first appearance in Manchester.

Scotney enters the ring fueled by the memory of her grandmother, Eileen, who passed away in August 2023 after witnessing Scotney capture the IBF title against Cherneka Johnson at Wembley Arena.

“My nan always told me to ‘finish the collection,'” Scotney said. “I know she’s watching, and I intend to deliver another championship for her.”

The London-born fighter faces her toughest test to date in Lefebvre, the French boxer who will be fighting outside her home country for the first time in her career.

“Lefebvre is a dangerous opponent, but I’m ready for the challenge,” Scotney stated. “I believe this fight is where I prove myself as one of the best in the division.”
