WIBA President Ryan Wissow commented that, “Rock & Sock Productions has been an instrumental and positive force in the growth and improvement of women’s boxing. Their series provides the fighters with competitive fights and gives fighters the chance to further their careers.”
Rock & Sock promoters Arnie Rosenthal, Ken Weiss and Stuart Breslow issued this statement: “When we began ‘A Ring of Their Own,’ we never dreamed that the response would be so overwhelming. To receive the Promoter of the Year award from the preeminent governing body in women’s boxing caps an incredible year. However, we could never have done it without the fantastic women fighters throughout the world that helped make our shows what they were. And our staff of Wanda Bruce, Amy Green, and Jackie Kallen helped make it all possible. We look forward to next year and hope that we can out-do ourselves, and continue to work in tandem with the WIBA and Ryan Wissow.”
The WIBA was established in 2000 by Wissow, and is recognized internationally as one of the leading sanctioning bodies for women’s boxing. Rock & Sock Productions produces the only all-women’s boxing series, “A Ring of Their Own,” which is distributed on cable TV and via satellite to over 40 million homes in the US and Canada.
