Women's boxing is finally getting exposure & it's only gonna get bigger from here. Right now it still lacks a little depth at the very elite level but time will change that. More and more women and girls are turning up at boxing gyms now of all different ages & abilities, I see that at my gym first hand. It's booming - give it time & let it grow.
This is true. Went to a show earlier and every young lady got matched. 4 of the 16 fights were girls!

Bone density is so apparent. Smaller gloves and 3mins rds would do more justice.

I suppose I should feel the same about them in MMA, but again, them laying on top of each other and whatnot gives it an extra layer not found in boxing, lol.
This wins the award for stupidest comment I've ever read.

Boxing for you is about how sexy the two fighters are? There are legitimate complaints about women's boxing but "they're not attractive enough" can not be a real one, what a joke. I can see how that would be a plus, but whether or not you enjoy their fights should not have anything to do with that.

It's probably about the same as men's boxing. I'd estimate that 75% of Men's headliners have odds of 3/1 or higher on the 'dog.... I put up the Pick 'Em threads (which include the odds at the time of posting) and if I only ever did fights where there wasn't a clear favourite the Pick 'ems would be real thin on the ground. Thing is only the real stars of female boxing ever get televised - and these ladies are either so much better than their competition that it's a mismatch or they're being set up to look good. You never get to see the more competitive filler fights that would usually make up the rest of a card in men's fights.

Good luck on your pro career. It looks like your 1-1.

I'd suggest an education to go with it. So if boxing doesn't work, you have something to fall back on. Like Juan Díaz
Still disagree with your thread, but appreciate the good luck. Had to take some time out the game so now back in the gym getting rid of the ring rust before making it 2-1.

But it fits into my point, it's easier to get different sparring now & there are more potential opponents even than there was a few years ago. Think becoming an Olympic sport was the first real boost & now it's the increased exposure for the pro game. Women's boxing is in a healthy spot & it's just gonna keep growing.

I think the only people who don't want 3 minute rounds are the WBC. It's gonna change eventually though, it has to. With 2 minute rounds you can just feel like you've hit your rhythm & then suddenly the round is over - it ain't enough time to do your work & show what you can do. Obviously you're gonna get a lot more stoppages once that change comes in & more fan friendly fights.

Okay I wish you well on your next bout. You failed to bring up one thing I mentioned.. That being education.. Have something to fall back on if boxing doesn't pan out for you. Peace
