McConnell to fight in Tacoma
by Lori Steinhorst
September 12, 2010

     
   
   
   
   

(SEPT 12) When Molly McConnell first entered the gym in 1999 she really had no idea the journey her life would take or the sacrifices she would endure in the name of women’s boxing. When the boxing bug bit Molly it sank its teeth in so deep that it would never let loose. In a year that brought out the most famous daughters in the fight game such as Laila Ali, Jackie Frazier and Freeda Foreman, Molly had just entered the arena.

Struggling to master the sport, she paid close attention to those that would instruct her, absorbing every vital detail. Her jack hammer jab, precision like skill and natural ability for boxing fueled her desire to be a champion….and a champion she became. In the world of amateur boxing Molly garnished win after win competing in the National arena. Making Oregon proud, Molly won the 2002 Women’s National Golden Gloves, bringing home Oregon’s first winning medal in 18 years.

Winning amateur events was only the flint that sparked the fire filled passion within Molly to become a World Champion. Molly became a professional fighter. With a quest to climb a mountain of personal achievement, she had a dream to secure a world title.

What Molly didn’t know or understand when she took this road, was the opposition she would face….the real fight, the fight of her boxing life. Her fight, trying endlessly to have a promoter put her on a fight card. This has not been a struggle Molly has undertaken alone. All women in boxing have run head first into this obstacle. The promoter that will put you on their card based on your skill and not your sex appeal are few and far between.

The good news is…..Molly has found that promoter. Not only will it be the main event, it will be 10 round World Title Fight for the WIBF and GBU Jr Welterweight belts.

Joseph A. Cintron of Cintron-Fizer-Shocks Promotions says “Molly has earned this opportunity and I am proud to be the one to bring it to you. Women have a place in boxing right along side the men. My intention is to make that happen.”

So, on September 25th, 2010, at The Soccer Center in Tacoma, Washington, Molly will enter the ring with one thing on her mind…..to realize the dream she has chased on every run, every day for 11 years. The stubborn, fiery Irish fighter that never gave up on her dream will no doubt pour her heart into this one.
