I’ll admit that I don’t typically watch women’s boxing, and it is seldom available on any cable subscription package in Canada. However, I watched 2 Canadian women with the Pan Am Gold a few months back and used to watch Christy Martin on Don King undercards. I had never seen you box while you were boxing, and though I’d heard her name, I watched my first videos of you as a mixed martial artist.
Holly, you demonstrated in your fights prior to last night’s MMA bout with Ronda Rousey a good sense of ring space and how to use it effectively. More importantly, you demonstrated an effective use of the southpaw position that, while seldom mentioned in MMA discussion, is a key combative variable in boxing.
