  5’3”, 110-115 lb. Tonia “TNT” Cravens,  was born in Phoenix, Arizona on January 28, 1983 and now lives and trains in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She received an AA in Liberal Arts from Central New Mexico Community College and is now working towards a PhD in Counseling. When not training, Tonia loves her church, volunteers in the community and still finds time for entrepreneurship. She really does believe that the sky is the limit, and her discipline, honor, and faith are rooted in her heart and notable both in and out of the ring.

Tonia participated in gymnastics for many years before she began boxing in 2002. She is the first in her generation to participate in the sport, though she has a lifeline of family who performed various Martial Arts in Mexico many years ago. When asked about what prompted her to begin boxing and why she continues to do it she laughs,

“I’m not sure, it just popped in my head one day. I personally knew nothing about the sport, so I pulled out the phonebook and started driving around town looking for gyms. I call it the ‘temperamental boxing gene’, and at first it was just a passion, but now it’s a lifestyle. I have made many sacrifices and made boxing a daily part of my routine, like eating. You can only go some time without it before you get too hungry and that’s all you think about. It’s a challenge I put upon myself. I’m not trying to be the best in the world because there’ll always be someone better around the corner. I admit that. I am however, trying to be the best that I can be at everything and see how far it takes me. This is the only life we live and I want to live mine to my fullest potential. Not only do I want to make a difference in touching others lives, one person at a time – I want to push my mind and body as far as possible and boxing allows me to do that.”

Tonia took many years off to recover from a non-boxing related injury and she pursued a new trainer. She is coming in older, wiser, stronger and drastically improved. This girl is ready for round 2 and is guaranteed to turn heads!

Unlike many, Tonia’s amateur career was very short; with less than ten fights she made her pro debut on September 30, 2005 at the Taco Bell Arena, in Boise, Idaho. Tonia (117 ½) won a four-round unanimous decision in a Bantamweight fight against Kelly Vannan (118). Tonia improved to 1-0 with the win.

On December 9, 2005 at the Celebrity Theatre in Glendale, Arizona Tonia (119) lost by a four-round unanimous decision against Hondi Hernandez (122) in the only pro boxing bout of the show. Hernandez improved to 3-0 with the win.

On January 6, 2006 at the Santa Ana Star Casino in Bernalillo, New Mexico in what was voted by New Mexico Boxing as one of the best fights of 2006, Tonia (116 ¼) went toe-to-toe against Yvonne Chavez (121¾) in what was later called a “bloody slugfest”.
