Christina Hammer ready to take over as the best Female fighter in the world

Despite female boxing being an official part of the international Olympic Games and ever increasing amount of female professionals possessing in-ring skills that can rival their male counterparts ladies boxing is still struggling to maximize its potential. Blame it on lack of proper promotion, blame it on mismatched bouts or blame it on the fact that if and when a female fighter becomes a top draw their management team refuses to let them stray far from home. Only a select few ladies have been known to travel for their fights and become successful in doing so. Continue reading
