AMANDA Coulson wants a fighting Finnish to her 2011 boxing programme.

The Olympic hopeful heads this week to Finland where she will meets Mira Potkonen.

Coulson will be in action at a specially-arranged international at the Tammer Cup, a prestigious tournament in Tampere, 100 miles north of Helsinki.

Following her success at the GB Championships at York Hall, Bethnal Green, where she defeated London 2012 rival Chantelle Cameron, Coulson is well aware she can’t take one step forward and one back by losing to Potkonen.

“It would feel more like one step forward and two back,” said the Catholic Club star.

Coulson really put herself in a strong position by outlasting and outclassing the young pretender in our capital’s eastend.
