Amy Lemenager set for first fight after hand injury
Amy Lemenager is the Northlands only professional female boxer. All the while being currently ranked eighth in the world, as a middleweight by the (WIBA) Women’s International Boxing Association.
Her next bout is set to be this Saturday April 23rd, at the MECCA XVIII event at Canterbury Park right here in Minnesota. The match will mark her first fight since coming back from a hand injury.
"I dislocated a bone up here, kind of closer to my wrist. No break, thank goodness but I could not fight unfortunately. So it’s just kind of been like a maintaining of training since then. It’s almost like I’ve been getting ready for a couple of months now," said Lemenager.
Amy "Hard Hands" Lemen-Ager is a former Proctor/Hermantown Mirage hockey goaltender, along with working long hours as a Duluth police officer.
She unfortunately suffered a knee injury back in the day that allowed boxing to take the forefront over hockey. An event she has used to get ready to fight Kaitlin Lavigne this Saturday at 6:00 p.m.
Lavigne has a record of 1-1, while Lemenager is undefeated at 2-0.
