BY: Richard Quiñones (Journeymen Boxing) As Noemie “La Rebelde” Bosques gets set to take on Heather “The Heat” Hardy in a scheduled eight-round super bantamweight affair Friday May 29th at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, New York, she knows that she will have a lot going against her.
Bosques (8-2-2, 2 ko’s) is coming off a split-decision loss at the hands of Nydia Feliciano back in March and that loss at the time most likely took her out of a possible UBF title fight.
She is currently ranked No. 3 in the U.S., and could have had a shot against Shelly Vincent at 118 down the road for a title. Vincent would defeat Christina Ruiz for the UBF and vacant IBA super bantamweight title in March, but a win by either boxer could set up a bout against Vincent.
Hardy is coming off a short fight against Renata Domsodi after an accidental head but in the second round caused an eye injury to Domsodi prompting the bout to be ruled a no contest. The fight was for the WBC International female super bantamweight title.
The 33-year-old Hardy (12-0) and Brooklyn, New York native, is the No. 2 ranked super bantamweight in the U.S. and eighth in the world.
Despite there being no title on the line, Bosques without hesitation believes this is the biggest fight of her career.
“Hardy is a tremendous fighter, and she always comes in great shape and she is a non-stop puncher,” Bosques said.
