Melissa St. Vil is in Helsinki, and will look to come back to NYC with a new strap to show off.
The 10-2-4 boxer, who trains at the famed and fabled Gleason’s Gym,  is looking relaxed, and ready to rumble in this pic off her Twitter, as she sits next to trainer Leon Taylor:
Here is the release which went out which tells us the particulars:
World Boxing Council super featherweight  champion Eva Wahlstrom will defend her crown against the rugged  Melissa St. Vil (10-2-4) in Kulttuuritalo, Helsinki, on April 6.

For Wahlstrom (21-0-1), this will be the fourth defense of her title,  since she was crowned in 2015, by defeating Argentina’s Natalia Del Valle.

St. Vil, 34, currently holds the Silver title of the WBC in the super featherweight division and is originally from Haiti.

Both warriors, showing their great commitment and professionalism, sent to the offices of the WBC all their weigh ins  plus the medical examinations required by the body.

We appreciate and admire the work of William Boodhoo, who is responsible for following up on all the requirements, which are specifically created to protect the safety and integrity of the fighters.
