boxing. Making history as the biggest womenís boxing match
in history is just incredible. This is all of the sacrifice
that I have been working for, for sure.

watch right now, male or female.

good fight. I fully believe I will take over.

foot out the door. I will give him his other foot. I will
give him his exit.

turned boxer. Iíve been boxing for over half of my life. I
ainít gonna lose to no half town boxer. And itís all gonna
go down on April 30.
