Stacked Sheffield card of women’s boxing as Tysie Gallagher faces Gemma Ruegg in headline bout

Written by James Wilson

An exhilarating night of boxing awaits Doubletree Hilton in Sheffield tonight, with a stacked card of primarily female fighters putting it all on the line.

With three women’s bouts and two male contests, it is the meeting of Luton’s finest Tysie Gallagher and Gemma Ruegg from Bournemouth that leads the billing for promotional newcomers ‘Unified Promotions’.

Both undefeated fighters have motherhood in common, and much is expected of the pair in their fledgling boxing careers.

Renowned boxing journalist and broadcaster Gareth A Davies will be a keen spectator at tonight’s sporting showpiece.

He said: “I’m really looking forward to the main event. They’re both young in their career, undefeated and already headlining a card.”

Inspired by the likes of Katie Taylor, Claressa Shields and Natasha Jonas, 23-year-old Gallagher has had 30 amateur bouts and is a former junior ABA champion.

Gemma Ruegg, 36, also boasts an impressive boxing pedigree. Having secured two regional titles as an amateur, Ruegg’s son Mace is also a promising boxer signed to MTK Global.

Ex-world champion boxer Anthony Crolla is also excited to take in Unified Promotions’ first hosted event.

Crolla said: “I cannot wait for the debut show. It promises to be a belter.”
