The game was evenly ready for the first three rounds before Harris delivered the killing blow in the fourth round.

After two right hooks had sent Harding to the floor, a flurry of left-right combinations followed by a final knockout hit made the result without a doubt.

Referees stopped the fight after a second knockdown and gave the win to Harris, who triumphed in the hands.

It was her second win over her Kiwi opponent.

Harris's latest award comes after a 3.3-meter bronzed statue was recently unveiled at Melbourne & # 39; s Federation Square immortalize the famous kick in the air of the 22-year-old Carlton star, which caused a storm in social media and saw her become a target for online trolling in March.

The statue led to outrage for many who believed that a statue was not justified for a footballer who played only 22 AFLW matches and kicked 17 goals.

AFL's great Malcolm Blight was one of the hardest critics before Harris hit back on the kickback.

& # 39; This statue represents #morethanakick, symbolizing a moment in time that can be remembered as a catalyst for change, a position against online intimidation and a reminder to women and girls that we deserve these opportunities, & # 39; tweeted Harris at the time.

Docklands eventually becomes the permanent home of the statue.

The AFLW 2020 season starts on 7 February.
