Terri Harper retained her WBC women’s world super-featherweight title in a thrilling and controversial draw with fellow Briton Natasha Jonas.
In a bout that showed women’s boxing at its finest, Jonas was cut early on but quickly found her composure.
In the eighth round Jonas hurt her rival with a left-right combination and looked on the brink of winning a first world title at the age of 36.
But the judges scored it 96-94 for Harper, 96-95 for Jonas and 95-95.
“I’m gutted I’m not coming home with the belts,” said Liverpool’s Jonas, adding she would jump at a rematch.
Promoter Eddie Hearn said: “We have to do that again. It was absolutely incredible. We are trying to push the women’s game but you can’t do it without the product. Women’s boxing is right up there and what a fight.”
