Mickie James will face her toughest test yet as part of her "Last Rodeo" series as she is set to challenge Impact Knockouts Champion Jordynne Grace at January's Hard to Kill.
It will be Grace's title against James' career per the self-induced stipulation by James several months ago that her next loss would send her into retirement.
James defeated Deonna Purrazzo in Thursday's main event on AXS with Grace coming out afterward to congratulate James and offer up a challenge for the title at the January 13th pay-per-view.
James is a four-time Knockouts Champion and has never faced Grace before. Grace will be looking for the seventh defense of the title she won at June's Slammiversary.
The title match is the second made for the January show from Center Stage in Atlanta, Georgia.
Here's the current card:
- Impact World Champion Josh Alexander defends against Bully Ray
- Knockouts Champion Jordynne Grace defends against Mickie James in a title vs. career match
