Nguyen Thi Thu Nhi wins the Asia-Oceania WBO belt in February 2020.

In late 2020, Etsuko defeated Miyao to claim the world WBO belt. Nhi was supposed to fight Etsuko in April but the Covid-19 pandemic continued and the match was moved to October.

Etsuko, 32, is a four-time world champion. In her career, Etsuko fought 26 matches with 20 wins, three draws and three losses. Nhi has only competed in four professional matches so far, winning all.

To prepare for this important title fight, Nhi went to Uzbekistan to train and boost her form, determined to achieve the goal she has been chasing this past year.
