When we think about female boxers, the list gets pretty narrow compared to the men’s list. In the United States, the first women’s world championship match occurred in 1888 in New York. Fighters Hattie Leslie and Alice Leary endured a brutal fight that ended in black eyes.
More recently, a young boxer made the front page of British press; her name is Nicola Adams. She became the first female boxer to win an Olympic gold medal at London 2012, and the first female boxer to become a double Olympic champion after winning a second gold medal at Rio 2016, both in the flyweight division.
