2014 was a hard year for Team Knight which we ended with one great win to add to the start of a new developing plan of female boxing in the United States. Ava Knight beat challenger Guadalupe Martinez November 13 of 2014 and was able to attend the WBC Convention in December of 2014 as an honorable Champion.
2015 We have new goals to gain back attention to women in boxing in the united states and hoping that it comes sooner than later. We are back in the gym and waiting for the next call to capture more titles this year.
Thank you for all of my fans and supporters!
