We can all agree that 2020 has been challenging, but we can also say that it ignited a new fire for Women's Boxing that continued to burn bright throughout the year! 
Women's boxing finally received more television coverage and although there were a couple of shut outs, we saw GREAT, EXCITING and sometimes controversial fights that will be remembered as amazing displays of talent from women's boxing.

We hope you enjoy this month by month recap of women's professional bouts in 2020 that finally got the eyes  they deserve - even more so during all this quarantine madness!
Once again letting the world know that
