Gaines gives WBAN a Bird's Eye View of the frustration of negotiating fights
by Sue TL Fox
February 20, 2013

(FEB 20) Just recently,  I met up with female boxing veteran Sharon Gaines, who fights out of Las Vegas, Nevada. She is just one of many boxers in this sport that "just" wants to fight---and with that said, to also be treated fairly in the sport.
Gaines is one of many female boxers who experience the frustration of getting fights, negotiating fights, and seeing fights fall through. She is among many others female boxers who experience even greater frustration when a fight has actually been negotiated, agreed upon, waiting for the contract---just to see the contract never arrive.  Full Story

Female Boxing that IS Televised on Cards
by Sue TL Fox
February 11, 2013

(FEB 11) WBAN at times is disappointed how the female boxers are treated differently, depending on the area in which they fight, in where they are not provided opportunities to be televised when they are on boxing cards. The sport is and continues to suffer from support of some of the sports networks, who will have a female bout on the card---but it will not be televised.   So WBAN  went on a cursory hunt today,  and dug up some (not all) of televised fights that are featuring females, to  demonstrate that women's boxing indeed is treated equally in certain parts of the world---not in the USA unfortunately. ..Full story with many Full-Fight Videos
