WBAN's Top Ten  "Pet Peeves" in the Sport!
By Sue TL Fox
Updated: February 4, 2013
Original/May 28, 2003

(FEB 4) WBAN can see the progress that women’s boxing has made since 1998 when first being published on the Internet….BUT WBAN has listed its Top 10  “Pet Peeves” that continues to raise its ugly head in the sport!


Television Networks that continue to discriminate against women boxers.  These networks can give all of the excuses they care to about the "reasons" of why they do not put women on their televised segment on their cards----BUT in the opinion of  WBAN it is no more than a sleazy disguise for discrimination.  WBAN originally wrote this in 2003...Has anything  changed?  Unfortunately not really.  Even after the women were included in the 2012 Olympics and the sport has significantly grown with many skillful boxers---they still yet to include women on their networks. 


Promoters continuing to find “soft” opponents for “their” fighters, and ignoring the fact that boxing fans pay good money to see a competitive match----not to see a superior opponent have a walk-through with an inept opponent.  As of 2013, with this originally been written in 2003, we still see this practice going on.


Fighters that ARE the best not getting opportunities---especially on television, and seeing these boxers retire out of frustration.  Update as of October 2013:  No change.  There are so many great female boxers in the sport that just cannot get active enough on cards.


Fighters ducking fighters….and getting away with ducking and being able to fight lamer than lame opponents---AND defrauding the public by phoney hype, etc. that they are the best in the sport, which in many cases is far from the truth. [Written in 2003]

I believe in 2013 we are seeing many more quality fights, whereas in 2003, it was much more prevalent for fighters ducking fighters.  We have come a long way in 10 years, and I believe that the strength of the amateurs is what is making the sport finally reach new and higher levels of skillful female boxers in the sport.


(2003) Promoters offering fights to women, just to cancel their events, or not fulfill their offer to that particular boxer.

Update as of October 2006: We are also seeing boxers take fights, just to cancel out with short notice.


(2003) Hometown decisions.  Making it nearly impossible many times  for a boxer from another area to win a fight without a knockout, and is lucky to get a way with a draw when they clearly won.

Update as of October 2013: NO CHANGE in 2013! These decisions continue to be as controversial as usual.


Low purses for women boxers, especially for high-profile fights, including world title fights.  In 2013, the purses are SO low for the females, and it does not seem to be improving.   


Legal binding contracts not being worth the paper they are written on for women boxers.


Boxers and Boxers teams who declare to news media sources that “No one will fight them” and in reality, they are the very ones ducking competent competition, but they continue to buffalo the public.  


(2003) World Champions/former world champions and or top world contenders, fighting boxers that do not have even one win on their record. 

Update 2013:  Little change, although the quality of fights have improved 10 years later.
