IBF women’s featherweight champion Dahiana Santana and her team recently stated that they would love to fight against the division’s number 1 fighter and WBC women’s featherweight champion Jelena Mrdjenovich in Edmonton for this September. Given Mrdjenovich’s reputation for not shying away from a fight it’s clear that she would take the fight as long as it is reasonable.
“I would absolutely fight her if her people and my people can come to a reasonable agreement,” said Mrdjenovich. “If not I would be all for going to the Dominican to make a fight there.”
Mrdjenovich’s has stated that her promoter, KO Promotions has previously offered Santana a fight but it did not go through due to a purse dispute on Santana’s part.
“We offered them a fight a while ago and they completely out priced themselves.”
Mrdjenovich will make her ring return on September 12th in Edmonton.
