ANOTHER FIRST FOR CIANTAR

Claire Ciantar, the first and only professional Maltese female boxer is set to box outside Malta for the first time in her career.

Ciantar already has two fights confirmed in 2018, the first in the beginning of February, she faces is Giulia 'Silver Cloud' Grenci in Rome.

Besides, this will be the first fight for her away from Malta after a fight scheduled in Aberdeen last November was cancelled. The latter was postponed to the end of February.

The 35-year old Maltese will fight against Kristen Fraser, the first and only Scottish female professional boxer, nicknamed 'TFE' - The First Ever.

Ciantar (2-1) and Fraser, who is undefeated, have sworn war on the ring back in November during the fight night at the Hilton Treetops.

The fight was called off as Ciantar did not have the required MRA scan to meet British Boxing Board of Control’s stringent criteria. An MRI and MRA pictures blood vessels in the brain and is required by the BBBofC.

The Maltese, who in early 2017 defeated the Hungarian Zsofia Bedo, is ranked 33 in the world and trains under Quendar Pena at their exclusive gym, Caribbean Boxing Club in Qormi.
