Rebecca set for rematch?

There is the possibility of a rematch between Rebecca Dillon and Camilla Johansen in Oslo this Saturday (8 May).

Johansen expressed her desire to meet Rebecca again this weekend immediately after the Norwegian lost to the Black Panther world champion at the Green Isle Hotel in Dublin on Sunday (2 May).

As things stand, however, Rebecca (pictured left, with Camilla, far left) is scheduled to fight Johansen’s Norwegian compatriot Marielle Hansen in the 52kg category. Johansen is down to fight Christine McMahon. But all that could yet change.

Richard Kiely, meanwhile, has an 86-kg contest against Kai Fordelsen.

The six-strong AKAI Irish team will be hoping that the cloud of volcanic ash dies down before they are due to travel to Norway at the weekend.

The outlook for Friday and Saturday is reasonably good, so hopefully their travel plans won’t be disrupted.
