Womens fights in germany - same deal

Also in pro boxing because there is so few competitors , there can be huge weight differences and wide open categories.
Apart from Katie there is no one else anyone really knows of or would be interested in.

Lets get real people dont care for womens boxing, Katie has had the best moment she can live through this.

Didnt she box on pro shows as a amateur anyway before ? Another Olympics is the best bet if she is to continue, the womens pro route sux in my humble opinion

no pal thats not how it works. in countries where female boxing is appriciated its big buissiness. just look at marianna juarez in mexico, ogleidis suarez in venezuela and regina halmich susi kentiken in germany. when these girls fight its a big deal sold out arena's big tv network coverage the whole works.

i garuntee you regina hallmich is just as popular in germany as felix sturm or arthur abraham. and katie taylor would have just as much success here as halmich does there cause lets face it sporting wise we've got **** all to cheer about which is ridiculous when you consider how sporting mad we are

I like how the writer of this article highlights the likes of Keith duffy and Barack Obama's 8th cousin as people who have congratulated Katie. Totally neglecting the congratulations she received from lennox Lewis, Oscar De La Hoya, Wayne McCullough, The President, Amir Khan, and Evander Holyfield!!

If your looking for papers that are gonna be filled with articles filled with glowing write ups about Taylor I suggest you start by looking in Ireland and not with the host nation who's sports pages are filled up with their own successes, including 3 golds yesterday.
