Another joke of a fight for this woman that hangs out in Europe a good fighter but she's in a very weak division she's really a super middleweight and now she's fighting a lightweight... she's ready to be taken claressa…

Should be a good scrap, they're both very good fighters. I sometimes prefer women's boxing to men's. At times the girls leave some of the technique at home and make it into a real fight that's more energetic and fun…

Those women look pretty happy in the face-off. I'm not sure if they're going to make love, fight, or both.
