The 28-year-old has helped pave the way for female boxing in Australia, winning gold at the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast and more recently representing her country at the Tokyo Olympics.
Nicolson narrowly missed out on becoming Australia’s first female boxing medallist since the 1988 Olympics when she lost to Great Britain’s Karriss Artingstall after three tightly contested rounds in the summer of 2021.
Managed by Paul Ready and STN Sports, slick southpaw Nicolson raced to 5-0 in her debut calendar year as a professional and remarkably boxed in four different countries and three different continents.
She closed off 2022 with a points win over Krystina Jacobs back in her homeland on Matchroom Boxing's debut show in Australia before starting 2023 with victory over the previously unbeaten Tania Alvarez in New York on the undercard of Amanda Serrano-Erika Cruz.
Closing in on a World Title shot, Nicolson extended her undefeated start to life as a professional with a points victory over former World Champion Linda Lecca to move to 7-0 before capturing the WBC Interim World Featherweight Title in Mexico against reigning holder Sabrina Perez in a career-best performance in September 2023.
Nicolson closed out the year with a successful defence of her Interim World Title, earning the first stoppage of her pro career in the process against Lucy Wildheart. With Amanda Serrano vacating the full title, Nicolson has now been mandated to face Sarah Mahfoud for the WBC World Featherweight Title in early 2024.
