Brazilian Boxing Sensation Beatriz Ferreira Beats the Odds for World Title Shot!

Brazilian boxing sensation Beatriz Ferreira, with an impressive 4-0 professional record, is gearing up to face Argentina's Yanina del Carmen Lescano for the vacant IBF Lightweight World Title. The bout is scheduled to take place at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool on Saturday, April 27, and will be broadcast live worldwide on DAZN.

Ferreira, known as 'The Beast,' made waves in the amateur circuit before turning professional, clinching a Silver medal in the Lightweight category at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Following her success, she signed a long-term promotional deal with Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing in July 2022 and made her professional debut at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland later that year.


The 31-year-old fighter from Sao Paulo is no stranger to the UK, having previously secured a victory over Karla Ramos Zamora at the Utilita Arena Sheffield in July 2023. Ferreira is now focused on capturing the World Title in just her fifth professional bout, with her sights set on claiming Gold at the Paris 2024 Olympics.


"I’m very excited to be fighting for a World Title in just my fifth pro fight," Ferreira said. "A few other opponents didn’t accept the challenge to fight me for the World Title. I don’t understand that attitude, but Lescano was brave enough to accept, and I know she will be a tough challenge."

Ferreira added, "I want to put on a great show in Liverpool next month and make sure I go to the Olympics in Paris as the reigning World Champion in both the professionals and amateurs. That would be very special. I won Silver at the last Olympics in Tokyo, and I am very focused and confident that I can upgrade that medal to Gold in Paris."
