Shannon Courtenay next fight on April 20

'The Baby Face Assassin' Shannon Courtenay (1-0) will have her second professional contest at The O2 on April 20, live on Sky Sports.

The former Islington ABC boxer will appear on the David Allen (16-4-2) vs Lucas Browne (28-1) undercard, which also features Commonwealth lightweight champion Joe Cordina (8-0) as he challenges Andy Townend (22-4) for the vacant British belt.

The only female super-bantamweight in Britain defeated Romanian Cristina Busuioc (0-1-1) in her pro debut on March 23 at the Coper Box Arena, winning all four rounds on points.

The 24-year-old from Watford, trained by Adam Booth, was an ABA finalist, Haringey Box Cup gold medalist, and became the first ever non-elite boxer to win a Southern Area title.
