It sounds like you boys are jealous of a pretty boxer getting more attention than the guys.

Don't forget there are many boxers that get easy fights handed to them early in their career, so what she's pretty and it got her on ppv I say well done to her...just hope she can box.

Respect to Erin and Sharon.

its pretty clear the hater here is female- and a jealous one at that!
neither did anyone say she will be world champ, she's just having a crack!
green put mostyn nieman on last card in his second pro fight? whats the difference?
dont even bring amateurs into it as generally pros have nothing to do with amateur PPV cards.

This is really a storm in a teacup.
It's entertainment, & promoters will opt for the most interesting people.

If they are targeting females, they prolly want a "glamour with a hammer" type.
ATM Lauren is more like the "skirt with no hurt" but teaching a woman to punch, let alone the rest, would take a lot longer than a bloke I think.

I'm not a fan of womens boxing but if she turns out anything like Sharon Anyos, I'll jump on her bandwagon.
Wait & see.

Not a great fan of women's boxing myself but...

1/ Eagle's had two fights only - where's the sense in throwing her in with seasoned fighters after 2 fights? Do we throw guys with 2 fights experience and no amateur career in against seasoned, or world class fighters FFS?

2/ A women getting PPV coverage is good for women's boxing - whoever it is that gets it. Yes, it should be Erin, but Eagle's coverage is still a positive for women's boxing.

3/ Twelve months isn't too long to wait to be able to say 'I told you so'. Be patient, and if she acheives nothing by then, bag her all you like.
