Good for you Heather.

Years ago my heart wasn't into women's boxing. We were promoting in Hollywood, and Bridgett 'Baby Doll' Riley came in to plead her case. Basically, it came down to 'I'll fight anybody' as opposed to the previous dozen male boxers who came by to ask for a soft fight, then they'd fight anybody. You may not believe this and I don't now when it turned but today's females are the men fighters of the '40's and '50's.

Having had the opportunity to watch Hannah Gabriels train on a daily basis before she became a mom opened my eyes to 'no human should ever be allowed to dash the sporting dreams of another human', regardless of anything.

You go, girls.

If its a good fight, I want to see it. If a good fighter is being developed, I want to watch their career unfold before my eyes. I don't care if it men's or women's boxing.

I do think the statement above is true that today's female fighters are like the male fighters of the 40's and 50's. They want the opportunity to show what they can do and will face any available opponent.

I'll be honest i don't watch much female boxing. Nothing wrong with it though just never had cause to watch. Will give this one a watch though, so long as it's televised.

I don't know who Heather Hardy is and I don't care about women's boxing one way or the other. If there was a female boxer like Ronda Rousey that would start the ball rolling. A pretty girl who takes bitches out, flashes a winning smile, then talks some smack would go a long way.
When I turned on my TV this past Saturday to watch the Hopkinzzzz card the UFC on FOX card was on. Coming to the cage were two former Rousey victims, Liz Caramouche and Meisha Tate. Tate has a great rack and it looked like she might come busting out of her top at any moment. I was on the edge of my seat.
