Former World Champion Hannah Rankin LOSES to Naomi Mannes

Hannah Rankin vs Naomi Mannes headlined Warren Boxing Management’s show live on BoxNation. The 10-round bout for the WBA Continental Super Welterweight title headlined the event after Kaisy Khademi vs Ryan Farrag was cancelled.

Former World champion Hannah Rankin (13-7) lost to Naomi Mannes (6-2-1) over 10-rounds via Split Decision. Mannes started the contest off strongly but appeared to be gassing early into the contest, breathing heavily and leaving her gumshield hanging out. Rankin took control in the middle rounds, but Mannes was able to weather the storm and finished the contest on top.

After 10 rounds, the scorecards read 77-75 Mannes, 77-76 Rankin, 79-74 Mannes. Mannes captured the WBA Continental Super Welterweight title and Rankin succumbed to her second consecutive Split Decision defeat. The Classical Warrior also lost via Split Decision on Queensberry’s Magnificent Seven show last year too.
