So, at last nights boxing I was ringside for my first ever Womans Boxing Match ..... and I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised!
Having been a boxing fan for as long as I can remember, I have also been a bit dubious about the Female Boxing scene.
I had those perceptions cleared up yesterday - it was a great fight indeed! I never thought I'd enjoy it, but I really did. The fight was competitive, the fighters were very skillful, and there was pretty much no difference at all from the traditional male boxing I watch week in week out.
The two ladies boxing in this particular fight were Maxine McCarthy of the UK and Zsofia Zobeo from Belgium. McCarthy went on to win the bout on points - and it was a very competitive fight to watch. We need to see more of this kind of match up, and I for one am converted! Fantastic.
