Which one do you mean? Her loss to Halmich was clear (Dunaway was a lot less experienced that time) and the bout with Sahin was very close. A draw would have been ok for both, but it wasn't a "robbery" ... no way.

I don't have a lot of interest to see women fight each other.

Yes, she's succeeded admirably in living off her Daddy's name. She's terrible though, I hope she never embarasses the sport with another "fight" again.

Unwatchable in such an amateuresque way that it is painfully dull; not unlike the WNBA. If I had an interest in watching no talent athletes put me to sleep, I'd be over at the local park at this very moment watching a bunch of fat guys play bar league softball.

Well said. I can enjoy a women's fight for the same reason I can enjoy a man's fight: If they are skilled and it's a good fight. I have watched Mary Jo Sanders in person three or four times; she usually puts on a good show.

I wouldn't say see was terrible. Her competition may be but not her. As far as women's boxing is concerned Ali is one of the best of the worst.

and the girls who do fight are as flatlander sayed butch 40 year crisised women. give it a few years and i'm sure we will have some good fights

Holly Holm isnt too girly. She's a good fighter that actually has a fighters mentality. She trains with my brother and when she gets hit, she gets pissed and wants to hit back. She's a fighter.

I've only seen her a few times myself but she's a good fighter and I'm guessing with the relatively poor quality in the majority of womens boxing that Katie would do very well for herself .

The women are getting better all the time. Baby Doll Reid schooled Shin-Hee Choi for the WIBA and IFBA flyweight titles last month. She looked damned good doing it - a slick, smart short southpaw who knows how to outbox a taller opponent from the outside with jabs and straight lefts. If she had the advantages of a man's musculature, physique and coordination, she'd be a top notch flyweight in men's boxing. (And Baby Doll is cute as a bug if that matters.)

My favorite is Alejandra Marina Oliveras, the WBC women's super bantamweight champ. She's a short buzzsaw with pretty good pop for a small gal, especially in her left hook. She blasted Jackie Nava with that hook to take the title last year. Locomotora is fighting with a disadvantage too - her enormous boobies much weigh 10 lbs, so she's really a flyweight in the super banty division. During her first fight against Nava, halfway through the match Alejandra's boobies kept threatening to pop outta her sweat soaked top, and she wasn't wearing a chest protector. She spent half her time ad******g her top for modesty, the other half throwing bombs. I've noticed that since then she wears a more effective restraining device.

So, tell me again, what's not to like about women's boxing? They've got the heart, some of 'em got the talent and most of 'em are better looking than Carlos Baldomir.
