With The Nightmare pulling out Eagle will now be fighting Kiangsak Sithsaithong, a Thai boxer who has won all nine of her fights with 4 KOs. This will be a tough competition for Eagle as Sithsaithong has never lost a fight.
An explanation as to why The Nightmare pulled out was not given.

Eagle will be fighting Canadian boxer, Natasha "The Nightmare" Spence at The Melbourne Pavilion in Flemington, Victoria on Friday 13 July.
Eagle has had five professional fights with two wins (KO 1), two losses and a draw. After being undefeated for her first three fights, Eagle suffered two straight losses to Bronwyn Wylie and Malin Morgan in early 2011. This fight will be her first since April 2011 and her opponent will not be an easy one to bring down.
Spence earned the nickname "The Nightmare" during her fourteen-fight amateur career which included winning two Ontario Golden Gloves Championships. Spence has also had five professional fights with four wins (KO 3) and a draw. Spence is known for her fast hands, footwork, body punches and knockouts.
Eagle said her strengths for the fight are her fitness, endurance and speed. “My aim will be to wear her down and use my new and improved skills to outbox her,” stated Eagle.
"Sometimes fighters with good KO power lack speed and if you have skill you can see the KO coming. I hope to utilize this for our fight," said Eagle.
Eagle will need to survive 10 x 2 minute rounds with the formidable boxer. "I believe that this will be a tough fight that will go the distance," she said.
"You should expect to see more boxing skill from me as I have been working hard on my jab and range. But most of all I have been working on my defence and counter punches," shared Eagle.
