Former national amateur champion Enja Prest will make her highly anticipated professional debut when she travels to Sydney in January.
The Gunnedah fighter - who won the Australian super welterweight amateur title in 2019 - will fight Queenslander Connie Chan at super welterweight (69kg).
Prest said the January 16 bout at Wetherill Park would be the realisation of "a main goal".
"And the timing was just right after winning the Aussie title - our coach [David Syphers] thought it was the right time," she said.
The 29-year-old - who amassed 13 wins against four losses as an amateur - is feeling "pretty confident" about her chances against Chan.
"We've got a good team behind us," she said.
"And I've definitely got the experience of David [Syphers] to get me over the line.
"So, I'm feeling pretty confident fitness wise, and training's been pretty good ... I feel as though it's the right step at the right time."
Prest said winning a world title was the ultimate goal.
Getting in a position to do that, she continued, required her "earning her right" to get a world ranking by beating opponent in her "own backyard".
Prest has been in a long-term relationship with fellow Syphers-trained boxer Wade Ryan, who fights for the Australian super welterweight championship in Cessnock on Saturday week.
"I'm very bless to have him as a partner and have him as a motivator as well," she said of Ryan. "So, he's always got the knowledge - and he's a great training partner as well."
