Women Boxers: Fighting In and Out of the Ring
Women Boxers: Fighting In and Out of the Ring

Listen
AIR DATE: August 22, 2011

The overwhelming majority of boxers and MMA fighters are men.  The daughters of pro greats like Laila Ali and Jacqui Frazier sometimes grab the spotlight.  But where are the other female fighters?  What do they have to do to get fights (and acceptance)?  Is there a glass ceiling in the boxing world?  And can they draw the big-ticket crowds?  Women fighters weigh in on what it's like to throw punches in a "man's world."

GUESTS
Layla McCarter, pro boxer
Jeri Sitzes, pro boxer/MMA fighter/muay thai fighter
Laura Serrano, boxer
