Default Re: Katie Taylor/Nicola Adams & Women's Pro Boxing

well due to a good olympic system i think womens boxing will take off in a bit. the pro female fight game has always been a disadvantage of going pro due to the few serious fighters. and the mentality of learning on the job instead of a strong amateur career.



jaime clampitt was known as a good amatuer she only has a 25-5 record. i think more peopl on this site have had more am fights.

These girls have a kushti set up within the AM ranks going pro is a big step into a tough market really. I think likes of Taylor and Jonas are well looked after by there governing bodies so i can't see them rushing to go pro. When you go pro your out on your own in some ways.

If they were to go pro, turn over and have a short sharp career and get out then Taylor can make a family wit PK and Jonas wit Earl Hickey .

What do they do after they reach 34 though because you can't live on 40,000 a year and save a lot for retirement?

Suppose they will go into jobs within boxing with there country's, roles that are probably made for them to be ambassadors etc. Sure they won't struggle for the work when they retire.

Looks like Katie Taylor could be joining the pro female ranks .I was reading on the scene a while ago about a female flyweight as well from Germany training in Frankfurt.

Holly Holm is apparently sounding out a fight with Katie Taylor.

Is the transition from AM to pro shorter in women's boxing?
