FILIPINA Charimae Salvador guns for the vacant World Boxing Association (WBA) Oceania Women’s light flyweight belt against Aussie Sarah Higginson at the Metro City in Northbridge, Australia.

The 23-year-old Salvador is fighting the biggest fight of her career, which could earn her a spot in the world rankings.

After a four fight slump, Salvador successfully returned to the winning column with a first round technical knockout of rival Marichu Semillano.

Salvador has fought the likes of former world title challengers Jessebelle Pagaduan and Shione Ogata.

Higginson is attempting to return to her winning ways after losing her last two fights.

She lost to promising young fighter Tylah Robertson by unanimous decision and to Shannon O’Connell via a first round technical knockout.

Salvador is 5-4 with two knockouts, while Higginson is 3-2-1 with a knockout.
