Female boxing sensation and multiple national champion, Kate Peters, is set to take her skills to an international level.

Peters, an indigene of Akwa Ibom who represented Lagos State in the 2017 National Boxing Championships which held in Lagos in February, effortlessly outclassed other boxers in the ring to emerge the winner in the Lightweight category.

“It is time to take my fight to a bigger level and fight foreign boxers,” said Peters who is expected to be called to the national boxing camp.

Her coach, Yinka Adeyeye of the Golden Weapon Boxing Club, Agege, also aligned that the time is right for Kate to tackle bigger challenges.

“Kate showed her superiority over all her opponents at the last competition,” he said.

 “She has dominated local fighters in her category and is ready to take on international boxers. She needs all the support and exposure she can get right now.”

Since Peters took to amateur boxing six years ago, she has won four national championships in her weight category – Gold in light welter-weight category at the 2011 National Sports Festival in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Gold in welter-weight category at the 2012 National Sports Festival in Lagos, Gold in the welterweight category at the Kenneth Minima National Open Boxing Championship in Lagos in 2015 and Gold in light-weight category at the just concluded National Boxing Championship which held in Lagos in February 2017.

This is aside several awards including best overall boxer in the Boxing Hall of Fame.
