There are no shortcuts in boxing

(JULY 15) WBAN continues to speak with women boxers who seem to think that they can take a “shortcut” in the sport, by fighting professionally, with little or no experience, fighting title fights, with insignificant records or experience, and/or continue to take fights where they are overmatched.

One boxer I spoke to recently had one fight (1-0-0) on her record, and yet she spoke about possibly fighting a world title fight, and mentioned that she was world-ranked with boxrec.com. (Unfortunately,  boxrec will rank female boxers in the top ten that have never won a fight...)  

I have spoken to women boxers, who stake claim that they have had amateur bouts on their records. BUT, when push came to shove, they did not have sanctioned amateur fights, but it was some other form of contact fighting—not boxing. 

Maybe a while back, a woman boxer could enter the sport without solid boxing experience in the sport---and with the “help” of some well-orchestrated matchmaking, gain her experience.  But most of the women who enter the sport without the proper skills and experience, do not have those “get a gift” tomato can matches,  and end up being  disappointed, and/or disillusioned.

TODAY, the sport has a tremendous amount of very talented boxers---not only in the pro ranks who have come from the amateurs, but amateurs who will blossom into pros.

A great example of one of these amateurs, is Vanessa Juarez, who is not even 18 years old, and yet has had over 55 plus amateur fights!

Examples of amateurs who have turned pro---Jeannine Garside, a boxer out of Windsor, Canada, who won her pro debut against a very good undefeated boxer.  Garside comes into the sport with over 40 plus amateur fights.  Another boxing sensation that comes to mind is Melinda Cooper, who began boxing at an early age, and had an extensive amateur background before turning pro at 17 years old.  Cooper is already a world champion.   So you see---if you are a female boxer, this is just a sample of some of your potential current and future competition.

It is sometimes baffling to say the least,  to talk with women boxers who seem to think that they can “short-circuit” the system.  That somehow they will get that “big punch” in and beat some of these skillful boxers in the sport. As they say, “Ain’t gonna happen.” You just cannot take shortcuts in this sport.
