Post Comments Thread For: Chevelle Hallback: Internal Fire is Still Burning, Literally

By Lyle Fitzsimmons - It’s three days before a fight… and Chevelle Hallback is a portrait of calm.

Her muscles are toned. Her technique is refined. Her conditioning is perfected.

But on the inside things are not nearly as, errr… settled.

“It’s crazy,” she said. “Every time I eat, I can’t hold anything on my stomach. Three or four times a day, I have to run to the bathroom. And when I do sit down to eat, I don’t have an appetite.

“Everything I eat comes right out of me.”

The affable Floridian has fought 39 times in 10 states and five countries over a decade-and-a-half as a pro, but concedes each ring approach at least temporarily shapes up to be the last.

This Friday, when she’ll perform for just the second time in front of fans, family and friends in her Tampa hometown… those ever-present butterflies are even larger and more fluttery.

“From now until I get in there is when I question myself,” she said. “It gets so bad that I always insist to myself, ‘This is my last fight. This is my last fight. This is my last fight.’

“I say it every single time. But once I get through the ropes, as soon as I step in, I’m OK.”

Assuming she indeed completes the trip from locker room to corner, Hallback will encounter a familiar foe – 36-year-old Kentuckian Terri Blair – whom she beat by unanimous decision on a women’s card at the Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, Calif.

And while six fights, three failed title shots and five years have passed since that competitive eight-rounder, the personal stakes have rarely been higher for the tattooed slugger known as “Fists of Steel.”

Not only is it Hallback’s first appearance in Tampa since a three-round no-decision with Melissa Del Valle in 2005, it’s also billed as the first show with an all-female main event in Florida history. [Click Here To Read More]

Props to Chevelle. She has come very close to being top dog in her sport a couple times, but she just can't get over that hump (mainly because Holly Holm was dominating for so long). She can continue to hold out hope for women's boxing on HBO, but I doubt that happens for many decades, if ever.

She has a stellar digestive system. Believe it or not, doctors say we all should have 3 or 4 bowel movements per day (ideally after each meal) like we did when we were babies. That requires a lot of fiber, water, veggies, and easy-to-digest proteins.

I share your pessimism regarding HBO broadcasting women's boxing, but "decades" is a long time. One can dream....

I really like the last quote from the article: "I'm praying and I'm hopeful, but if not this year or early next year then it's time to leave it for the next generation." I like her attitude. I didn't sense any resentment or frustration regarding the lack of attention to her (or the sport).

Good luck to you, Chevelle.

If having a stellar digestive system means feeling like I'm about to get into a potentially life-threatening fight every day, I'd rather have disappointingly infrequent bowel movements, thank you.

I must comment on the poorly worded title of the article: "Chevelle Hallback: Internal Fire is Still Burning, Literally".

Is Ms. Hallback in flames, internally? Who set her on fire? Did she swallow a lit match after drinking gasoline? Should we call the fire department? Should we have her swallow sand, if a fire extinguisher is not readily available?

Or, more likely, is the word "literally" in the title not meant to be taken literally? If this is the case, then what does "literally" mean, literally? I know, some people couldn't--or is it "could"--care less about words and their proper meanings, but I do, so here we are, figuratively.

Sorry about the burning baby. The Doctor said it wasn't contagious. Should clear up in a couple of days or so.
