Shannon Courtenay was delighted after picking up her fourth professional win last Saturday night, with a close-fought points victory over Jasmina Nad at the O2 Arena.

The Watford fighter described the bout as a "learning fight" and said she thinks she proved she is willing to work hard.

Speaking to iFL TV after winning the fight, Courtenay said she showed her class.

"If you keep putting me in with girls who are just going to bowl over, I'm not going to learn anything," she said.

"There are some people that would build their ego and think they don't have to train as much and think they will bowl everyone over. That tonight showed that even if you're a class above but you need to work at this. It's a very good learning fight for me and I feel like it was good entertainment.

"She was really really tough, she threw the kitchen sink at me from the off which is not what we predicted and not at all what we had seen from her previously in footage, so it took me by surprise a bit. I should have got started a lot sooner and then especially around round three or four I feel like I showed my class.

"I showed a little bit of what I can do and it shows I can fight and I can box, so it's a very good learning curve. It was a big step up for me after just four fights - she had a very good record and just came of the back of being four undefeated, I'm really happy, it was a good performance."
