The Tough Ladies of Sports: Boxing Divas

BY insidewo ON August 18th, 2013

The history of women’s boxing can be difficult to trace because there have been long periods of opposition and the inability for women to box professionally. The first traces of women’s boxing can be seen in London during the 1720′s. This sport did have women competing against each other but elbows, scratching, knees, and other forms of violence were allowed making it difficult to call this sport boxing like we know it today.
Even though you see traces of female boxing as far back as 1720, there really was only exhibition and scattered bouts until the 1950′s. However, the first notable bout to occur in the United States may have occurred in 1876, details might be a little More..

Talking Trash: Let Them Fight it Out in the Ring

BY insidewo ON June 13th, 2012

People have been talking about the Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight for decades so it seems and people are dying to see who the true pound for pound champion is. However, the trash talking from Mayweather’s side and the constant talks about how the fight “needs” to happen has really caused a problem in boxing. It seems as if the fighters only will fight those that they “want” to fight and this is mainly towards Mayweather’s side. He has constantly talked about how he wants to protect his health because he knows that it is a dangerous fight.
As a fighter, he will always be in danger and it makes no sense for him to say what he said. It virtually just showed that he is scar More..

BY insidewo ON August 24th, 2011

Female boxers have yet to catch up with their male counterparts in terms of pay. Since women’s boxing has been unsuccessful at reaching the masses on a saturated level the pay for female boxers varies greatly depending on weight class, record and match-ups.

Who Qualifies to Get Into the Women’s Boxing Ring?

BY insidewo ON August 20th, 2011

Boxing has always been a popular sport, throughout the world. However, it has, and still is, a sport that is primarily dominated by men. The theory is that higher testosterone levels in men are what drive them to be interested in fighting sports, such as boxing. However, women will find that boxing provides them with some excellent benefits.

BY insidewo ON June 20th, 2011

There are not a lot of differences between the boxing men’s and women’s boxing rules.
