Natasha Jonas, Patricia Berghult to fight in unification bout Sept. 3 in Liverpool

WBO junior middleweight champion Natasha Jonas and WBC titleholder Patricia Berghult will fight in a unification title bout on Sept. 3 in Liverpool, England. Jonas (11-2-1, 8 KO) was the first British woman boxer to compete in the Olympics and will be making the first defense of her WBO belt, which she won by knocking out Chris Namus in the second round in February. Her February win had been her third world title fight in her past four fights, having had a draw with Terri Harper at junior lightweight and then losing to Katie Taylor by unanimous decision for Taylor's undisputed lightweight titles last year.
