Nanako Kikuchi Announces Her Retirement

of press release

(DEC 2) Former Straw-weight world champion, Nanako Kikuchi, of Japan, announced her retirement from the rings today; at 35, and after having fought professionally for seven years.

[According to the WBC] Kikuchi was the first female Japanese boxer who won a [WBC] world title, and in addition to that, one of the pioneers of female boxing in her country, reason for which she is leaving with great merits and recognition from everyone in the boxing scope.

[Our Correspondent  from Japan said: Kikuchi was the first female Japanese boxer who won "the WBC" world title. 
But we Japanese boxing fans remember our champions such as Suger Miyuki (IWBF 1997) and Raika (WIBA 2002) .Unfortunately, The Japanese Boxing Commission doesn't admit Kikuchi,  Suger Miyuki, and Raika were the world champions. They are thinking that the history of the women's boxing started in 2008.  They say the first female Japanese boxer who won a world title is Naomi Togashi.

This great fighter has gone down in history, together with other fighters of the recent past, such as: Christy Martin, Laila Ali, Mia Saint John and many more, in addition to many current ones, such as Ana Maria Torres and Anabel Ortiz, both Mexican.
