Top Picks for Women’s boxing in 2016
January 26, 2017

Boxing is a very popular and in some cases one of the highest paying sports in the world. Women’s boxing first appeared in a demonstration bout of the Olympic Games in 1904. Women’s boxing has progressed to the point that there are literally thousands of amateur and professional boxers in the sport today. We had some of our favorite picks for 2016 for professional female boxers and top amateur boxers who turned pro in 2016.

Amanda Serrano. We start our list of top picks of female boxers in 2016, Serrano, 31-1-1 (23KO) has had quite a year in 2016, fighting four times, and winning all her bouts. She has not only pound-for-pound skills in the ring, but projects a stellar image outside the ring, and continues to do that in the sport. In 2016, Serrano became the WBO Featherweight Champion when won by a first round KO. She had the honor of being the first female to headline a card in Puerto Rico, where she won by a fourth round KO. Serrano was featured in every newspaper in Puerto Rico on every top TV program, with over 35 billboards throughout the island. In 2016, she was named “Fighter of the Year” in Puerto Rico.

Cecilia Braekhus. Next on our list of another top pick of the
Best Female Boxers  in 2016, is Braekhus, 29-0-0 (8KO) who made history in Norway in 2016, after she made a historical homecoming, who was the first boxer to fight on Norwegian soil since 1981. In one of her fights that took place in 2016, Braekhus had an impressive win over Anne Sophie Mathis, who was stopped in the second round of a ten round bout, where it was a unification title fight for the WBC, WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO Welterweight titles.

Zulina Munoz. The next boxer on our list of Top Picks in 2016 with Mexican banter weight Zulina ‘La Loba’ Munoz, who sports a professional boxing record of 48-1-2 (28 KO), and is a veteran boxer of 11 years thus far, and holds the WBC Super Flyweight World title. She made her professional boxing debut on March 11, 2005 at Salon Super Estrella in Ciudad, Mexico. Many websites,
like this great site, have been experiencing great traffic with people all over the world betting on Zulina Munoz whenever she was fighting.

Marcela Acuna. The next boxer on our list in 2016, Acuna, 45-6-1 (19KO), fought three times in 2016, winning two by ten-round unanimous decisions and one by KO. In December of 2016, she delivered Yesica Marcos her first loss in the sport after Marcos had won 27 straight professional bouts, where Acuna won the vacant IBF Super Bantamweight World Title.

Jessica Chavez. The next on our list, Chavez, 28-4-3 (4KO) fought three times in 2016, with all being in defense of her WBC Flyweight title, in which she won all three bouts. She is currently the WBC Flyweight world champion and has defended her title several times. Chavez first began to box when she had her pro debut on June 12, 2006, where she won her fight against Maribel Cruz by a TKO in the fourth round.

Claressa Shields. A history-making amateur boxer who turned pro who made our top-picks list, made her pro debut in November of 2016, and was the first female Olympian to turn pro in the sport. She also made her footprint in the sport when she fought in the history-first 2012 London Olympics, winning a Gold Medal, and then again competed in the 2016 Rio Olympics winning her second gold medal. Shields was only striving to win the Gold when she competed twice in the Olympics and never settled for less not even for a
Olympic Bronze Medal in Boxing.

Yessica Bopp. The next female boxer on our list, an Argentine women’s boxing champion in the light flyweight division. Nicknamed “Tuti,” Bopp stands 5’0″ tall and has a professional record of 27-1. Bopp is the top ranked female light flyweight fighter in the world. For

In 2016, Taylor turned pro, and quickly earned a 2-0-0 (1KO) boxing record as a pro. She first made Irish boxing history, at the age 15 in October of 2001 in the first officially sanctioned women's bout ever held in Ireland.
