Where are they Now?  WBAN Gets the Latest News on Elena "Baby Doll" Reid!
by Sue TL Fox
November 3, 2015
     
   
   

(NOV 3) In our third series of stories on "Where are they Now",  WBAN has recently been in contact with Elena "Baby Doll" Reid" a flyweight who fought from 2000 to 2010 accumulating an impressive amount of pro fights over the 30 mark.  She fought such greats as Regina Halmich, Layla McCarter, Alicia Ashley, Ava Knight, Susi Kentikian, Nadia Hokmi...and the list goes on.  Reid told WBAN the following:

"I am so grateful to have spent my young life pursuing the sport of boxing. I feel so blessed to have been in some aspects. I made goals, worked hard and got to enjoy adventures and life in ways most people can only dream of. I will never forget how much and how many people helped me through the years to attain the goal of being a deserved champion. (A special thanks to Boza Edwards who helped me without ever expecting anything back. What a beautiful thing it was to love and be passionate about life.)

My passion now is being a mother and helping give back to my community. Being a mother has given me more joy than I have ever known. I had always been interested in helping but boxing gave me a unique tool to help. Boxing can do so much to help people in many aspects of life. It can be a stress reliever, confidence builder, help in cognitive function, general health, or a goal or means to a better life. I may not be competing, but boxing will always remain a huge part of who I am and what I do. This is where I have to thank my husband for having a real job, so I can once again pursue what I love.

I hope to see womens boxing in the USA,  take a note from Germany. Its not about a one woman show its about exciting competition. There are many women out there who are stellar athletes and exciting fighters. The UFC is an amazing machine and knows how to promote and sell.

Only promoting one woman and not showing or promoting competition among women only leads to 'women fighters as sideshows.'   The World should know about the Melinda Coopers', Kay S West, Ava Knight, Monica Lovato, Layla Mcarter, Ann Wolf, and countless others. There is such a deep pool around the world of competitive female boxers. The problem is the promoters not paying to promote these deserving athletes. I will continue to speak to anyone who will listen about the benefits of boxing and the amazing women in the sport."

Elena added, "Where I am now: Im happy, thankful, tired, surrounded by a beautiful family. I hope to be able to promote the sport I love."
