(NOV 26) Professional female
boxer Carrie Flock, of Charlotte, North Carolina who boxed from
2000 to 2005, having her last pro fight in June of 2005, when
she TKO'd Tristen Jones. AND...the good news is that Flock
On November 13, 2014, she entered
the squared circle again, winning by a four-round unanimous
decision over Natalie King, who was making her pro debut, of
Wilson, North Carolina.
JKN Sports wrote, "The crowd seem
to come electric when Carrie Flock of Charlotte made her way to
the ring; she was definitely the fan favorite."
WBAN was told that the fight was one of the best fights of the
night on the card. Christy Martin was also at the event.
WBAN asked Flock about why she
stopped boxing and has now decided to return to the ring.
Flock said, "I decided to take a break in 2005 because I was
getting frustrated with how boxing was Going for me. Bad
promoters, not getting fights to go through, training
everyday and nothing happening. So I started playing on an
"All Women's football team" called the Carolina Queens in
Charlotte and I played with them for five seasons."
"Time flew by playing with them because we traveled and was
always doing many things in the community and training. But I
eventually separated from that and just worked and would go to
the gym. I always did boxing workouts and other
activities. I even taught water aerobics' for a year," added
"Boxing has always been in my heart and I've always said I would
like to give it another round but only if I felt it was right
and worth it" said Flock.
WBAN asked her what she would
like to achieve in the sport, and she said, "My goal is to get a
title belt. My time is limited, I don't see myself
doing this after 40, I turn 38 in 2 weeks. But also
my age can fool some of the younger fighters," said Flock.
So what does Flock do outside the ring?
Flock told WBAN, "I do work seasonally at the Charlotte Hornets
games (basketball) as a server in a lounge. I also do freelance
photography. I've currently started getting my
photography name off the ground. 'Ravishing Memories
Photography' and between those two things I'm training. I like
running so I do any 5ks I can sign up for and participate in."
