Sports have become the savior of countries including the United States. We back our teams, and follow them to victory or sulk with them in loss.

Woman’s boxing has had its ups and downs, and names fly in and out of the news, but only a select few have been able to stay in the tabloids for their accomplishments. I would like to shed a light on a few women that have not had a lot of spotlight that I feel are some of the greatest role models and pioneers of boxing during the decade. The women whom have become great champions, and who are great examples for the rest of us to look up to who are trying to reach the same goal. The wome...Read Full Post »

Women’s Boxing has come a long way, from fighting for passbooks, to fighting for respect, money, and recognition. Respect has been a long time need from fans, matchmakers, promoters.

I have recently become aware of a local family with a two year old boy who has been diagnosed with Stage Four Neuroblastoma. This is a very serious, aggressive type of cancer and his chances of survival are currently at only about 20%.

Through out the years my main goals in boxing have been to win a world title. I had two unsucessful bouts until October of 2011. 2012 is a new year and new goals are on the horizon.
For one, I'd like to unify the flywieght titles and bring them all to a deserving champion. The fact that there are champions fighting pro-debuters, boxers with losing records, and girls that just look...Read Full Post »

On my long ten hour drive to Las Vegas, I had time to think of what to expect with the ladies on the card fighting for victory. I came up with every outcome of what was going to happen, which some I was right and others I was way off. Some things go to show that with boxing, nothing is certain. Any fighter or style can come out in a fight that can change how the opponent looks or fights.
