So how exactly do two amazing women with awesome blogs meet up as the Main Event for the Atlanta Corporate Fight Night 2?

Main Event Tale of the tape:
Lisa: Professional online media, writer of the popular The Glowing Edge blog where boxing, rock & laundry meet in a perfect harmony!
Mischa: Journalist for the Melbourne Herald & the Herald Sun, author of the boxing memoir Bruising, and soon to be published, The Sweetest Thing (and for those of you in New York City, come check out her book signing event at Gleason’s Gym on April 12th from 6:00 – 8:00 PM).
Boxing or how I found myself in the ring!
Lisa: “I stumbled into boxing entirely by accident.” A happy accident for Lisa and her many fans who read her stories about life in an out of the ring as a 40-something amateur. More to the point, Lisa writes, “the single biggest catalyst in my transformation into an amateur boxer was watching my trainer Bonnie ‘Queen B’ Mann.” In working with Bonnie, Lisa came to understand the kinds of commitment, heart and soul it takes to get into the ring, and in crossing the ropes has never looked back.
Mischa: Mischa started boxing in the mid-1990’s at around the same time she returned to University to study creative writing. As Mischa writes, “I started boxing and that was when all my activities began to converge and I began writing about my experiences.” Along the way, Mischa published her first book, Bruising, and picked up some serious boxing chops, winning national championships in her native Australia, and more recently participating in USA Boxing Master’s Division competitions, winning the National Women’s Golden Gloves in her weight class.
Lisa: “I will be deeply honored to step into the ring with Mischa. I’ve seen her box and I think she’s incredible. The match is a privilege I have worked hard for, and am very much looking forward to.”
Mischa: “Lisa is a true warrior and I love her ‘can do attitude. That’s the ingredient you can’t teach anyone in the gym. You’re born with it and it’s called character. It will be an absolute honour to fight Lisa.”
