She went on: ‘Grateful for the opportunity to get out of my comfort zone, to be taught so much by so many amazing individuals in America, and to be able to prove what I’m made of. I can’t wait to see where this chapter takes myself next but I’m ready and willing to put in the work.’

Arabella also thanked her coach, as well as tagging the Coltivare Fruit and Vegetable Store which presumably fueled her training.

It comes months after Arabella denied claims she was ‘dropped’ from her previous debut match on December 22 over ‘severe backlash’ to her ‘dodgy past’.

‘Unfortunately that’s far from the truth,’ she said of claims that she’s been dropped, adding that the women did not each reach the required 65 kilo weight target to match up in the ring.

Arabella revealed that her team were concerned a about her ‘health and well-being’ as she has not boxed before, while Kate is experienced. 

Speaking ahead of her fight on Sunday, Arabella told Daily Mail Australia: ‘I’m really looking forward to it, and have been dedicated and training five times a week. 

‘It’s something I have always wanted to do, and this is a great opportunity for myself. I have received such great support and have a lot of people behind me, and what better than to put a show in front of my own city of Melbourne?’
