Catherine Phiri says the pressure is on her opponent and WBC female bantamweight champion Yazmin Rivas in their January 30 title fight in Baja, Mexico.

Catherine returns to the ring for the first time since May 2, 2015 when she lost her debut fight to relinquish her WBC interim title to Irish boxer Christina McMahon whose reign lasted just that fight before losing to Alicia Ashley of the USA in New York on October 29.

“Rivas is under pressure to win this fight because she is the champion. I have nothing to lose in this fight so I will take advantage of her pressure to win the fight,” Catherine said.

Rivas is unbeaten in her last six fights and the 28-year old has 34 wins, eight defeats for no losses.

Catherine’s record is at 10 wins and one defeat as she prepares for her first away bout.

Her team, who left for Mexico on Friday via the USA, will set-up a preliminary training base across the border en route to Mexico for next Saturdays fight.


  1. LT at it again. What do you mean when you say its her debut fight?
    Go Cathy Go. We can’t wait to receive that belt at KKIA. Soccer(ans) have just given us a ‘baby’ peaceful night with their travails against Uganda.
