This is Areti’s 7th fight as a professional boxer and she is about to chase another World Title.
All of Mastrodouka’s previous professional bouts were held at the famous York Hall in Bethal, London. Consequently, the southpaw Greek boxer has been traveling from her country in order to train under the guidance of Alec Wilkey alongside the rest of his team who are based at Lansbury ABC in Poplar.
Mastrodoukas won her first professional title back in November 2012, when she won the International Masters Title by beating Lana Cooper.
Areti’s nickname is “The Master.” A name she earned due to her illustrious amateur career.
