Women’s flyweight Katy Collins screams and darts her way across the cage in fights. She’s not doing it to pump herself up; it’s simply what happens naturally.
“It’s not necessarily that I need it; I just feel that’s me,” Collins (7-2) told AXS TV Fights, which carries her fight tonight against Shannon Sinn (2-4) at LFA 21. “I’m just very aggressive. That’s what I do. I’m just mean in there, and that’s fine.
“I feel like it’s really an advantage to me. A lot of people just don’t have that.”
LFA 21 takes place at Branson Convention Center in Branson, Mo., and the main card – including Collins vs. Sinn – airs on AXS TV.
Collins favors the ground game and the “very personal” contact between her and opponents. She tries to overwhelm them with aggression until they capitulate.
For tonight’s fight, Collins will use that energy in hopes of putting away Sinn, a short-notice replacement after Collins’ original opponent backed out with a knee injury.
Collins has had only three weeks to prepare for the fight, but she’s confident her training will lead her to a winning performance.
“We know that she’s a boxer and is most likely going to keep it standing, so I’m going to have to close the distance to get to her,” she said.
