Southpaw Marisol “2 Tuff” Miranda, born June 6, 1974, 5"2", 112 lbs., originally from the Bronx, New York was raised in Union City, New Jersey. At the age of 15, her family moved to South Florida.

Miranda knew early on that she was destined for the ring, but relied solely on guts, ambition, and raw talent. She grew up fast on the streets and served a brief prison stint but her incarceration did not deaden her spirit. Miranda recalls even no formal training she would visualize herself as a fighter and would shadow box in her cell. Upon her release that all changed.

At 28 years old, Miranda began training with Pete Browski. "Pete knew that there was something special in me," said Miranda. Browski felt that Miranda would be better served by someone who could bring out her skills and could relate to her as a woman and a fighter. She then began training with retired two-time world boxing and kickboxing champion, Bonnie Canino.

Miranda had an amateur career of 7 fights under Canino before she made her pro debut on August 28, 2004. She fought hometown boxer, Laura Norton at 115 lbs., in Boynton Beach, Florida. Miranda lost by a split decision.

On October 10, 2004, in Alpharetta, Georgia, at 112 lbs., Miranda fought Karen Davis, and won by a four-round unanimous decision. Miranda dedicated this bout to the memory of her late brother Juan Miranda Jr.

On February 26, 2005, Miranda, 110, in Baton Rouge won a unanimous decision over Terri Moss.

On July 9, 2005, Miranda went toe to toe with veteran fighter and world champion Shondel Alfred in Georgetown, Guyana. Alfred proved her dominance with cleaner shots but Miranda fought with heart and guts to go the distance in this six rounder. Alfred won by a unanimous decision.

Miranda, 115, also had fought the much more experienced Terri Lynn Cruz in Ignacio, Colorado where she was stopped by a devastating blow by Cruz, that resulted in a fractured eye. She also fought Heather Donahue, in fighting in an action-paced six round bout at Camp Pendleton, California. Donahue won by a majority decision.

On April 20, 2007, at the Community Center, in Port St. Lucie, Florida, Miranda,  114¼, won a four-round unanimous decision over Kimberly Tomes, 114¾.

Miranda is inspired by having such a strong support network comprised of her longtime steady boyfriend Mark and her four children, her friends and fellow boxers, Tina hooks, Kathy Rivers, and boxer in training and best friend, Diana Blue.

Miranda advises that to be the best you must learn from the best. She said that was why she did a lot of sparring with the likes of multi-world champion Bonnie "the Cobra" Canino, Ada "Ace" Valdez, Kathy Rivers, and others.

Miranda boxes out of the House of Champions in Vero Beach, Florida, under the direction of trainer Gus Curren where she indeed intends to live up to the namesake of her "house" and become a champion.

Miranda is inspired by having such a strong support network comprised of her longtime steady boyfriend Mark, her friends and fellow boxers, Evonne Reis, Ria Ramnarine, and the whole Canino’s fighting family.

Miranda advises that to be the best you must learn from the best. She said that was why she did a lot of sparring with the likes of multi-world champion Bonnie "the Cobra" Canino, Ria Ramnarine, Ada "Ace" Velez, Melissa Hernandez and others.

Miranda quotes Tom Krause “Courage is the discovery that you may not win, and trying when you know you can lose.”
