"I don't want to hurt your feelings...but NO ONE cares about the past boxers"

(MAY 11)  It was in 1997, after doing extensive research for about a year on the history of female boxing of any and all women who participated in the sport, whether they had one fight or 20 plus fights.  I wanted to know about each and every one of them who played any part in the history of the sport.

I did not have a clue how to make a website at the time, and my earliest thoughts on making a website was to call website businesses and asked what it would cost to get a website up on the net.

I remember that after conferring with these companies, I knew that if I was going be able to make this historical website in what I was envisioning at the time, I would need to be able to do it myself. 

I knew in my heart that it would take massive amounts of time----not only the continuing research of the sport, but just learning how to get a website up on the net in the first place.

Something that sticks out in my mind, even as of today, who I know said this to me, to help me, not to criticize...

"I don't want to hurt your feelings...but NO ONE cares about the past fighters..."

I distinctly remember my response to that comment saying almost in defiance....

"I don't care if only ONE person visits the website....I want to give recognition to not only the females I fought in the past, but to all women boxers who had any participation in the sport."

So on May 19, 1998----- WBAN went live on the internet.

I say this with great happiness, that WBAN is now celebrating our 14th year on the net.

I cannot say it has been an easy road to go with WBAN. I have personally had some very high points throughout the years-----but have also had many low points as well.

I do want to express my sincere appreciation to any and everyone who has helped WBAN become "the monster" as I describe it as it has become today.

Without the great writers and photographers, and the boxing community throughout the world who has continued to send in stories, links, information-----the site WOULD NOT be what it is today on the net.

I have gained many close friends, worldwide, which is amazing to me in itself.

I cannot trade or sell the experiences that I have gotten from all of you, and there is no price tag that can attach to what WBAN has become---and what it has done for me personally.
