Shahidah's biggest date
Country's first female pro boxer set for Kiwi test on home soil
She will face her most experienced opponent, yet.
And Singapore's first woman professional boxer Nurshahidah Roslie, is not leaving anything to chance.
The 29-year-old will take on New Zealand's Gentiane Lupi, 40, at the Singapore Fighting Championship (SFC) 4 event at the Foo Chow Building on Nov 12.
The fight will be for the World Boxing Association Oceania super featherweight title.
Among Lupi's scalp is compatriot Daniella Smith, a former International Boxing Federation (IBF) world welterweight champion.
Shahidah, nicknamed "The Sniper", has been preparing for the test with a more all-rounded training programme.
"There are always things you don't do so well in previous fights, but I try not to dwell on them," she told The New Paper.
"We're stepping up my training this time round, and also focusing more in terms of my nutrition, to make sure I have enough energy in training.
"In fact, 90 per cent of my preparation for this match is outside the ring."
Shahidah, who has won all four of her fights since turning professional in February, is looking forward to pitting her skills against Lupi.
"I am excited," she said.
"I'm up against an opponent who is so much more experienced and this is a very good opportunity to test myself."
Apart from Shahidah's fight with Lupi, several other matches have been confirmed for SFC 4.
Alexandrew David, from Vanda Boxing Club, will be making his pro boxing debut against Indonesia's Budi Kalbar.
And three-time SEA Games bronze medallist Ridhwan Ahmad will take on Filipino Nathan Bolcio, who boasts 13 wins from 27 professional fights.
"From his fight record, I can say that he is going to be a tough challenge," said Ridhwan, who has won all four of his pro fights, with three knockouts.
"But I will only know for sure once we are in the ring trying to knock one other out.
"I am motivated to do well and show the crowd that I can step up to the plate and deliver.
"I like my fights tough. Victory will be much sweeter."
