Jane Kavulani was born in Vihiga Western Kenya in 1976, to a humble family. She is the last born of seven children. Her parents are credited with managing to bring them up humbly.

Kavulani is the only child with boxing talent in the family. She was introduced to boxing upon arrival in the boxing favored estate of Pumwani in Nairobi. She had a short stint in the armature ranks which could not propel her beyond the zonal levels before she finally joined the paid ranks in the year 2002, under her Trainer Korky Ahenda (deceased)

Most significant part of her, she is credited with having the energy to withstand tough opponents with a zeal to resist knock-outs

Kavulani's pro debut was on June 12, 2002, in Dar-es-Salaam against Monica Mwakasanga. Amidst protest from her fans, she fought a six round bout contrary to the common four round belief for a debutant. To the amazement of her followers, she fought gallantly and jabbed her way to the least bell.

“She must have learned my game plan earlier in the fight. I expected to knock her out before my home fans, but she is a good fighter,” said Mwakasanga after she was declared the winner.

Kavulani returned to the on February 1, 2003, in Nairobi, Kenya, against Ann Wambui in a four round bout,  which she easily won. Wambui’s corner demanded for a rematch, that was set to take place on March 13, 2008, in which she won again in a convincing decision. 

On May 15, 2003, Kavulani then faced Conjestina Achieng in Nairobi. Kavulani experienced her first defeat by losing on points. .

She then met the then swift south pole Damaris Muthoni in a six round bout on July 31, 2004 at the Nyayo National Stadium, Nairobi, Kenya.  She won the bout on points.

On August 28, 2004, at the Jam Rescue 2 Club, Nairobi,  Kavulani fought Conjestna Achieng in a rematch.  The two fought six rounds, and the bout ended in a draw.

On December 19, 2004, at the Nyayo National Stadium, she was  pitted against undefeated boxer Fatuma Zarika, who came into the fight with a 6-0-0 record.  Kavulani lost by points.

Kavulani found herself embroiled in a rematch demand for her win against Damaris Muthoni.  The rematch took place on the May 28,  2005 at the Shark Palace Hotel, Nairobi, Kenya. She lost on points. She bitterly protested citing bias but as the judges made their verdict, the fans had long made up their minds that Kavulani was the winner.

Her next appearance was on the November 26, 2005,  at the Moi Sports Complex, Kasarani in Nairobi. She easily out punched the lanky Monique Chipeta of Kenya. This contest was evidently one sided in spite of Chipeta’s resistance to hit the canvas with her cleverly calculated ducks.

Kavulani secured her first contest out of Africa in South Korea against Ji-Hye Woo at the Hanlim Gymnasium, Jeju, South Korea on the March 11, 2006, and lost by points.

She managed to secure her second outing overseas to face Anita Christensen of Denmark in a six round fight, on the June 9th, at the Vejlby-Risskov Hallen, Aarhus. She again lost on points. Kavulani made good her promise of ensuring that she was not preyed upon by the tactful Anita, then 17-0-0. At the end the judge’s verdict was 53-60 on all score cards.

Judy Waguthi was next to soil her Denmark misery on the November 12,  2006, at the Grand Regency Hotel, Nairobi, Kenya. Kavulani lost on points.

Kavulani improved her record with three consecutive wins against Consolatta Awuor June 9, 2007, at the Deep West Restaurant Nairobi;  Rukia Nasirite on June 18, 2007 at Olkalau City, Kenya;  and through a rematch against Consolatta Awuor on the September 8, 2007.

Kavulani went again to Denmark on the March 23,  2008, as a late replacement for Galina Koleva Ivanova who was ill at the time she got matched up with Anita Christensen's WBC title defense. She lost on points having survived the 10th round. While she beat the count to her knee. Scores were 89-100 on all cards.

Back home, she had to console her ego with a win over Georgina Wambera at Eastliegh Social Hall, Nairobi, Kenya, on May 31,  2008. It was a tough encounter. The most controversial result in her boxing career as she admittedly expressed dissatisfaction when she lost to Rukia Nasirite in a four round contest at the Club Africa Nairobi. She immediately requested for a rematch, which Nasirite’s camp has since declined.

Kavulani cruised easily over Nantongo Mulinde of Uganda in a six round encounter at the Wab Hotel Nairobi with a sixth round Knock Out on the July 19, 2008.

Kavulani then met Evelyn Adero on August 30, 2008, and lost on points. Final judges scores were 57-59, 56-58, and 55-60.

Jane has revamped her tactics by switching to the new Coaching sensational, Joseph Miyumo. She has promised “SCUD” war in her future fights.
