Why women box? Courage, pure and simple.

Why women box?  Courage, pure and simple.

There have been some remarkable truths that have come out about the women who box.   I found the following video about the featherweight boxing powerhouse Tyrieshia Douglas to be particularly moving.

Please give this a view.  Her honesty and straight forward compassion for her family are overwhelming.  We need more people like Tyrieshia in the world.  Kudos to Andre Chung for this beautiful video essay.

Please also listen to the WNYC Radio‘s story on her as well:  Tyrieshia Douglas: Boxing is my Mother and My Father.
