    That is why I posted the Forbes list a couple of days ago. You know where the money is and you know where the top talent is going.

    Yikes. We’re not doing very good with our male’s boxing program it seems. Uzbekistan has emerged as a powerhouse for amateur boxing so I’m expecting to see a few gold medals for their country.

    I can live with that. They are fighting other women. Not comparing strength. From what I'm seeing women are shining at the world level. McCaskill is something else.

    I don't like unskilled women's fighting (slapping around and crap) but some of the elite women boxers have guts, skills, and special effects. If I try to make a list of my top 10 favorite current fighters, 4 or 5 women might show. Let's see.

    1. Gervonta Davis
    2. Saniesa Estrada
    3. Bud Crawford
    4. Jessica McCaskill
    5. Erickson Lubin
    6. Katie Taylor
    7. Luis Nery
    8. Mikaela Mayer (or Amanda Serrano)
    9. Juan F. Estrada
    10. Lomachenko or Nakatani

    I like many other fighters. These are a must-see for me.

    But men's boxing is more promoted as well and thus more chances to advance. Men enjoy luxuries most women boxers don't see.
    No ones "promoting" amateur boxing really. Its just about competing. Women generally don't like to compete & when they do its seldom involving hitting each other upside the head. Its not unlike the WNBA to the NBA. You could spend the same amount to advertise the WNBA as gets spent on the NBA & all you are doing is sitting money on fire. Even women don't give a fook about womens sports is the sad reality. Same goes for womens boxing.
