Amber Stautzenberger To Face Lacey Schuckman At XKO 20Strawweight prospect Amber “The Apex Predator” Stautzenberger faces her most experienced opponent to date on November 23rd at Xtreme Knockout 20 in Arlington, Texas. Stautzenberger is set to face off against Invicta FC veteran Lacey “The Ladie” Schuckman in a 115-pound bout on the card.

Both fighters announced the matchup on Friday. Stautzenberger has won three straight fights this year and she most recently scored a Unanimous Decision victory over Glena “Heartless” Avila in April. Schuckman is 2-0 in 2013 and she is coming off of a 28-second submission victory in June.

Stautzenberger (3-1-0) dropped down to the 115-pound strawweight division in July 2012 and concluded her amateur career with a competitive three-round fight against current Invicta FC rising star Tecia “The Tiny Tornado” Torres. She turned pro two months later and dropped a razor-thin decision to “12 Gauge” Paige VanZant. Since then, however, Stautzenberger has racked up three impressive wins including a Unanimous Decision victory in her Xtreme Knockout debut in March. The Texan now looks to score her biggest win to date in two weeks’ time.

Schuckman (9-6-0) has battled many of the sport’s top female fighters in multiple weight classes. At just 25 years of age, the Colorado native has already fought 15 times as a professional including bouts against reigning Invicta FC champs Carla “Cookie Monster” Esparza and Michelle “The Karate Hottie” Waterson. In February, Schuckman scored a Unanimous Decision win over Darla “Train Wreck” Harris. She came in overweight for her most recent atomweight fight in June and submitted an overmatched Jody Lynn Reicher. Schuckman returns to 115 pounds and steps into this fight on short notice.
