Maybe I have missed it somewhere on here, but I am just wondering if there is any place on here to discuss women boxers as I believe they are becoming a larger part of the sport. Or is no one here interested in the women?

I like women's boxing, I just think we have seen the best of it. Christy Martin was right there in the middle of the height of it, and I think for the most part society is over it. Besides, female sports are not as much fun for me to watch. I prefer the male version of any sports over the female version, aside from gymnastics and maybe soccer.

I'd have to agree with LadyViper

Just like women's soccer, much of the country's fascination with women's boxing has come and passed. Women's soccer around the last world cup was huge and now, even their league is gone. Take women's boxing, celebrity boxing probably got more attention and ratings than serious female boxers. Celebrity boxing itself was just detrimental to taking female boxing serious.

I just have to say that I really hate how women's sports don't get the same attention as men's. Another example is the WNBA, but at least it's still around. Women work just as hard and deserve to get the same amount of respect.

womens boxing gets far more traffic into my site. I know generally speaking that female boxers are cool and easier to interview with a couple execeptions pro wise and are more fun period I know many boxers who try to pose there are excpetions ofcourse.
:dunno:

I post more female boxing because I need people visiting my site and its advertisers. The hits show it.

The problem with woman boxing is that they need more of a hook to get attetnion. Some of the very best boxers, as far as talent go, are female. They simply don't get the exposure and the ones that do get lost in the politics. Promotors make boxing now and if you can't make them money it doesn't matter how good you are. A boxer has to be able to put fans in the seats and have them pay for those PPV tickets. How many people can name more than 5 female boxers that are active off the top of thier heads?

judging from some of these posts and the media womens boxing is still not taken seriously really..I don't see the difference between men/womens boxing. It'd two people punching whatever gender they are.

Most of the fighters I have trained that fought pro were female. They are more trainable in my opinion. They listen better and there is almost never a clash of egos between fighter and trainer. Female boxers don't do it for the money, they are in it or get into it because of what it is. If enough female fighters could get together, I think a traveling road show would bring more attention to them. Kind of like the Fighting Angels tour did back in the late
90s. They put on 5 and 6 fight shows at different colleges. It died off because of a change in adminastration staff.

That could be a great idea. I don't see why women are still not taken seriously by so many people when it comes to boxing. It's ridiculous.

I'm just curious. How many of you can name (off the top of your heads without ANY help) 10 active female boxers or 3 current world female champions.

OK, I knew when I posted it that it was not a fair question to ask. My point was that the people that claim woman shouldn't be or aren't good fighters are misinformed or not informed at all. Later in the week I will start a new thread about current champions and rankings and fights with some good links. not all so called female boxing sites are worth looking at.

Sorry, I am swamped with work, I will get the woman's boxing info up monday or tuesday to included up coming fights. Be prepared on the fights schedule to have never heard of any of the fighters on it. By the way, if you want look up the future or woman's boxing, look up Melinda Cooper.
