Super Bantamweight and previously undefeated boxer, Emily Klinefelter (9-1, 3KO) is reportedly out of danger after suffering a burst blood vessel this past Saturday night in Iowa City, Iowa in the third round of her bout with boxer Christina Ruiz (6-3-1, 4KO).   Klinefelter was knocked-out cold following repeated blows to the head over the course of the scheduled six-round bout.  The Daily Iowan, Klinefelter’s hometown paper, has the story here.  Fight News has the story here.

Girlboxing sends our best wishes for a speedy recovery to Emily and her family during this difficult time.

The Fighter an all-Male story?

"The Fighter"

Director Catherine Hardwicke, best known for directing 2008’s blockbuster movie, Twilight has  revealed that she was prevented “from pitching to direct The Figher because she’s a woman.”

“I couldn’t get an interview even though my last movie made $400 million. I was told it had to be directed by a man — am I crazy? It’s about action, it’s about boxing, so a man has to direct it … But they’ll let a man direct ‘Sex in the City’ or any girly movie you’ve ever heard of.”  Read the full story here and here.

2011 USA National Boxing Championships – June 20-June 25 in Colorado Springs

Queen Underwood and Patricia Manuel, 2010 USA Boxing Championships

The 2011 USA Boxing National Boxing Championships will be held in Colorado Springs, Colo., for the second year in a row.  The tournament will run from June 20 – 25, 2011.  As noted on USA Boxing’s website, “ the six days of tournament action will feature over 300 of the nation’s top male and female Olympic-style boxers, culminating in final round action on June 25.”   This year’s competition will be particularly important with one year to go before the qualifying bouts for the debut of women’s boxing in the 2012 Olympics.  With such nationally ranked fighters as Queen Underwood, Cashmere Jackson and Andrecia Wasson in contention for championship titles in their respective weight classes, this year’s bouts should be particularly exciting.
