|Daria "D' Hit Woman"
Hill, 6'1", born on January 7, 1979 in Camden, New Jersey. She
lived with her Mother and Father, Darrah and Peggy Porter.
Daria told WBAN, "My Mother and Father
taught me to believe in myself, because, if you believe, you can make it
happen. 'Just Believe'. My father Darrah and grandfather William James
Porter were both boxers."
Daria attended pre-school at the “Broadway Family Center” in Camden, New
Jersey. She later attended Whittier Elementary School and Morgan Village
Junior High. Daria graduated from Camden High School. She became
interested in rapping at an early age. She also started out writing
poetry. In time, Daria was able to convert her poetry into a song
During Daria's freshman year in high school, she joined the girl’s
basketball team. Daria won “the Rookie of the year trophy”.
Daria said, "That made me feel good. I have always felt I am a natural
born entertainer. So, with that in mind, I joined the school band and
the school choir, even though, I don’t think I can sing that well. I
became a member of the All City Dance Club, I acted in plays and I was
also a member of the Track and Field Team."
In her sophomore, junior and senior years she worked at the school.
Daria held a position as a part-time computer assistant/intern. She
worked as a receptionist for a small Newspaper “Times Publication”.
Graduating from High School was one of her biggest achievements.
Soon after graduation, Daria moved to Syracuse, New York. She
worked several jobs over a few years.
When she was 20 years of age, Daria gave
birth to a baby boy, her son, Caliph Perry. "He certainly
motivates me to do more than work a nine-to-five job. Soon after his
birth I began to concentrate more on my rapping career. I rapped at
parties, went to talent shows, open mic’s , also during the summer
months in Camden every year we would have, Unity and Fun Day, like
always I’d find a way to entertain everyone, either by dancing or rappin
or both", added Daria.
Daria said, "Presently I’m writing and producing my music, in addition I
have my own studio, and so I am constantly making, burning and selling
my own CD’s. I had my first single release party in Camden in 2002. The
party was a success. Camden showed mad love for a sister that night. I
went to a talent search in early March of 2002, American Music Search
(AMS). One of the representatives of AMS really liked my CD and as a
result, I was asked to come to a convention in Washington D.C., to
meet and let 35 Record Companies listen to my CD. However the trip was
not feasible, because the cost just was not in my budget."
Daria wanted to get into boxing, because she was always fighting and
knocking out guys in high school, so she met a young Preacher who was
also known as the “Rev”. He believed in her fighting spirit right away
so he took her to Philadelphia, PA to Champs Gym and introduced her to
her current boxing trainers, Wade and Randy Hinnant. Both are
ex-fighters. She strapped on the real gloves in April of 2000.
Daria has been in the ring with Jacqui Frazier Lyde….(“Sister Smoke”),
she is the daughter of former Heavyweight Boxing Champion “Smokin” Joe
Frazier. And in fact, was a sparring partner with Jacqui when she was
preparing to fight Laila Ali. Daria looked at it as a great
experience, and a small part of history. She also got compensated for
Daria said, "The bottom line is I truly enjoy boxing and rapping. I
always loved the response I’ve gotten from people. So, on that note…. I
am working as hard as I can in both professions to be the best. My plans
are conclusive. Like any up and coming talent I am seeking a reputable
and winning team to surround me and I look forward to a long and
prosperous career in both boxing and music. All I need is the time from
God and the rest shall be history."
Daria won her first amateur fight by way of a (TKO), 39 seconds of
the second round. She won a majority decision in her second fight. She
lost her third fight on a majority decision in a fight that she felt
that she won. Daria turned professional shortly after.
Fight #1: On December 11, 2002, at Hudson Theatre, Manhattan, New York
City, Anne Marie Saccurato won a controversial four-round majority
(38-37, 38-37, 38-38) decision over debut fighter Daria “D’ Hit Woman”
Hill of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. According to a report by Scott
Schaffer of Inside Women’s Boxing “Saccurato’s glove touched the canvas
in the first for a knockdown, and she appeared to lose the fourth
clearly, but somehow she managed to escape with a majority decision.” It
should have been a lesson learned” (don’t let them get up, be
Fight #2: On June 19, 2003, at Adam Mark Hotel, Philadelphia, PA, D’ Hit
Woman won her first professional match. She dropped Machelle Shedrick in
the first round on her way to a TKO 2 minutes into the 2nd round. Her
aggressiveness was the key. She displayed great power.
Fight #3: On May 30, 2003, at DC Tunnel, Washington, DC, D’ Hit Woman
once again displayed great power. She dropped Iris Griffin twice in the
first round and went on a relentless attack when griffin corner stooped
Fight #4: On January 29, 2005, at Silverton Hotel Casino, Las Vegas,
Nevada, D’ Hit Woman once again displayed great power and a will to win.
Unable to catch her breath and lift her arms from the first round on,
because of the altitude change, which plagued the east coast fighters,
she still managed to stop Angie Poe by way of TKO 1:54 into the 5th
round. She showed grit and determination and the only fight she felt she
Daria Hill vs. Shadina Pennybaker
Fight #5: On October 8, 2005, at Harrah’s in Laughlin, Nevada, D’ Hit
Woman” ranked #19 once again showed the boxing world what she is made
of. Fighting the feared Shadina Pennybaker ranked #1 by the WBAN in what
could have been the best fight of the night. D’ Hit Woman fought an
outright war for six rounds. Learning from her last fight in Las Vegas
D’ Hit Woman came prepared for the altitude change. According to a
report by Sue TL Fox of WBAN both fighters knocked down each other, with
Pennybaker taking two knockdowns, and Hill one knockdown. Hill was the
much taller opponent, and displayed a disciplined style of boxing.
Pennybaker more of the brawler. The combination made a dynamic duo. When
the referee announced that Pennybaker won by a unanimous decision it was
not without some of the crowd booing at the decision. Both fighters not
only displayed great skill, but very good sportsmanship. The final
judges scores were (57-55, 56-55, and 56-55).
Ready, Willing and Able Statement (RWA)
Daria “D’ Hit Woman” Hill is RWA to take on all challenges in her
weight class. She is currently fighting from 140-154 lbs. However, if
the right fighter comes along and makes an offer at a higher weight
class, let say, someone like, Laila Ali, she would be happy to step up
and take on the challenge. After all everyone deserves a shot at the
best to be the best and after all “D’ Hit Woman” is the best.
