Denning Boxing Gym could have another champion in their ranks, with professional boxer Kylie Hutt to fight for the vacant Australia Women’s Welterweight Title in Northbridge tomorrow night.

Hutt, 27, will fight Sarah Dwyer at the Thunderdome 24 event, which will also feature Denning’s Alex Hanan on the same card.

Known as the Ice Queen, Hutt has fought professionally three times for two wins and a loss since debuting in 2016.

Hutt, who lives in Busselton and began training at Denning last year, will look to gain victory against the Perth boxer who has two wins from six fights.

“I am focused, motivated and cannot wait,” she said.

“I just have to put my chin down and keep my guard up.”

Hutt said she moved to Denning Boxing Gym to train under the late Peter Stokes.

“I wanted to advance my career further,” she said.

“My goal was to go for the Australian title and Peter and I sat down for a chat and he motivated me to keep going.”

Hanan, 19, is still undefeated from his three fights and is coming off a first round win in Sydney last month.

The New Zealander will take on MMA fighter and former Bunbury resident Harlem Ottaway, who will make his professional boxing debut.

Hanan said he was feeling great and ready for “another big show” tomorrow night.
