The scores were 98-92, 98-92 and 97-93.
Less than a year ago, Harper was competing at super featherweight.
Harper was proving to be too fast for Rankin, who was having trouble catching up to the smaller fighter. A right hand opened up a bad cut above Rankin’s left eye in the third.
As the fight played out, Rankin had her moments, but Harper was just too accurate and fast for Rankin.
