So, today, I've been getting calls and posting topics on Facebook. Mainly the topic of me as a fighter being avoided. I feel, today, with all the images fighters have come to try to hold up, respect from other fighters are the cost. When a fighter calls themself the best, they must have fought the best, so you would think, not the fighters past their prime, on there way out, fighters with losing records, and so on.
I have always been the 'OPPONENT' and nothing more. I have never had my own promoter promote me as the home team, never had a home field advatage or even had a place where I can have my family come without travel. That has hindered my chances of making local fans and support.
I have a list of fighters that I could call out, but that doesn't make anything happen. We need the fans to bring it to the attention of promoters to make big fights with females happen. No offence to the ladies that brought it up and made it big in their time, but bringing back a fight like Mia St. John Versus Christy Martin is pointless and being so out of age and past their primes may hurt us as females to televise a fight like that, when bigger fights like Knight and West could be happening locally and on your television.
Food for thought...who do the people want to see me fight?? 110lbs to 118lbs?
