Women’s boxing in UK

Women’s boxing in UK

Britain’s BBC has started airing Women’s boxing as a run-up to the debut of the sport in the 2012 Olympics.  Broadcasting a fight this past weekend with Britain’s Nicola Adams, a buzz has started to filter through the British press about the viability of the sport as one that is professional and exciting.

The matches included Amanda Coulson versus Natasha Jonas, and Nicola Adams versus Lyndsey Holdaway.

We might all say, well “duh,” but as an acknowledgment of how far Women’s boxing has come since the early 1990’s it is exciting to see.

The BBC reported the story here.

Meanwhile, The Women’s International Dual Series is starting today in Oxnard, California.  In this series, a total of 18 boxers coming from five nations around the world will compete.  The event will have nine bouts of exciting boxing per night and its promoters hope that it will continue to elevate the visibility of the sport.   Boxing News 24 has a story about it here.
