“I was really happy with my last performance and I know I am continuing to progress constantly and that is the fire that is really driving me to become a champion. When I set out in boxing I just wanted to become an Australian Champion but I believe I am going to be presented with opportunities to win more titles, even on a world stage.”
Hutt continued, as she described her emotions when the news broke she had been listed in the WBC and IBF’s world ratings. “I was overcome, it’s something I only dreamt about when I started boxing and it’s now a reality. It is a massive motivation to keep improving and push myself to the next level and I believe I have the team around me that can do that.
“At my weight Claressa Shields is champion. She is a great champion and I massively respect her. Fighting someone such as Claressa has always been a dream but that dream is closer to being a reality now, so why not shoot for the stars, worst that can happen is you land in the clouds I guess.
“I feel I have some unfinished business in Australia, but the world is my oyster, and I am coming for world titles because why not!”
Hutt is guided by international managerial powerhouse Tony Tolj and Tolj also gave his take on Hutt’s potential assault on the world. He said, “I’m very proud of Kylie for breaking into the world ratings. She’s a great fighter and a great person so I’m really happy that she has managed to get into the world ratings.
“I always try to do my best for my fighters and give them the best opportunities. Kylie is on the brink of some fantastic opportunities in the near future, so I expect her to keep working hard and becoming successful off the back of that.”
Hutt was originally slated to be in action last weekend but the pandemic like other bouts have cause that to be rescheduled. We’ll see once that bout is back on how far she climbs the world rankings.
