Layla McCarter Training in Las Vegas at the Hit Factory Gym

(NOV 18) Amazing Layla McCarter training at the Hit Factory Gym in Las Vegas, Nevada as she prepares for her upcoming fight against Melissa "Huracan" Hernandez, November 21 at the Orleans Hotel & Casino.

 


Layla McCarter / Mary Ann Owen

This is the third fight for Hernandez & McCarter, the first fight McCarter won because Hernandez failed to come out for the 9th round. McCarter won the Global Boxing Union (GBU) Female World lightweight title



A few months later they had a rematch once again with the GBU World lightweight title on the line. This time McCarter lost a Majority Decision. Both fights were full of action in every round. Now seven years later, the two meet again at the Orleans Hotel and Casino to dance the third time. Both of these fighters are veterans in the game, they train hard and bring their best to give the fans an exciting evening of boxing. Unfortunately this fight is only scheduled for eight rounds with no title on the line, which is to bad because both these fighters deserve a ten round title fight.


Women's Boxing has lost a lot of their fan base in North America and especially in Las Vegas due to the lack of activity. Women like Layla McCarter and Melissa Hernandez, like many of the women boxers have given their all to the sport but yet they struggle looking for fights.

Major promoters do not use women on their cards and HBO & Showtime do not televise women's boxing either. McCarter & Hernandez and the rest of the Professional Women Boxers are cheated out of being able to showcase the sport they dearly love. They lace up the gloves, head to the gym and put in many hours of grueling training just like the men. In the History of women's professional sports this has been the case, you're a Women so you don't get the same opportunity as the men.

March 16,1996 , Christy Martin vs. Deidre Gogarty was on the Tyson vs Bruno undercard.

Martin & Gogarty had fans on their feet cheering, that fight was the best women's fight of the 20th Century because of the tremendous impact it had on so many women inspiring them to box.
In 2014 you would think after all the success with women's boxing in the early 1990s that this sport would be better today. Women don't get the pay they deserve, they are not on any major undercards, their fights are not on Television.

Women are born fighters , I know they will not quit the sport they love, they will continue to lace up the gloves, train & hope there will be a fight somewhere for them..
