Women Behind Boxing:  Up and Close with Jean Dancy
November 19, 2015
Photo Credits: Jean Dancy

(NOV 19) WBAN had the pleasure of meeting up with Jean Dancy, via Facebook just recently---and we were absolutely fascinated at her background in the sport outside the ring.  WBAN for many years have not only covered women boxers, both amateurs and pros----but women outside the ring, and behind Boxing."

About Jean Dancy:  Muhammad Ali fascinated a little girl with his fancy footwork in the ring and caused her to fall in love with the sport of boxing. Her biggest dream was to meet Ali. Though destiny had something even better in mind. That little girl was Jean Dancy.

Author of the poem "My Black King," the Alabama A&M University graduate is grateful to have worked as an actress, model, make-up artist, jazz singer, English teacher, sports-writer, motivational speaker, Life Skills teacher, Real Estate Broker, and certified mediator. However, her most outstanding accomplishment happened when she became the first female boxing manager to manage and later promote an athlete who was also her husband. Under Dancy's management, Marty Monroe soared to a #4 world ranking in the Heavyweight boxing division.

 "An Evening of Poetry" with Jean Dancy. Dancy said, "All of the poems were written by me. Ali and I used to share our poetry. I must thank Muhammad Ali because he suggested me to the owner of the Gallery."

Throughout her career, Dancy has received recognition for her achievements. She was named "Woman of the Year" in sports for her accomplishments in the boxing business. She was honored for being a member of the multi-million dollar circle of salespeople as a real estate broker.

What about Muhammad Ali?---and destiny?

Jean didn't just meet Ali, at one time she was the only female boxing manager in his Deer Lake training camp! Later she became a boxing promoter.

As a sports-writer, and boxing enthusiast, Dancy has connected with some of the most elite boxers, trainers, and promoters in the history of the sport. That list includes Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, George Foreman, Don King, Evander Holyfield, Thomas “Hit Man” Hearns, and the Mayweathers.

Dancy said, "The legendary "Smokin" Joe Frazier and me. My darling husband and I had some great, fun, times with Joe."

Jean Dancy, the mother of a lovely daughter named Ava, particularly enjoys helping people in relationships, motivational speaking, singing, and painting.

Dancy is also the author of Love Guide for Teens. The popular book with teens points out how to recognize and prevent abuse in relationships.

A magical night at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, in Los Angeles, California (her first boxing event she promoted.  Dancy added, "I loved him with every breathe and every cell of my being...and he loved me back---the same way. He lives in heaven now."
