Angie "The Assassin" Woolum, 26, 5' 4 1/2" , 125
lbs., and from West Virginia, is a new up-and-coming fighter to be
on the lookout as she is already making her mark in professional
boxing. To look at Woolum, one would never guess what she does for a
living. She is a young, attractive college student during the day, but
after hours---she trains everyday and already is ranked #9 in the world as
a featherweight contender with the IFBA (International
Female Boxers Association).
Angie took a break from boxing to go to school,
but has been back in training in the year 2004!
Woolum is a natural athlete, who has
excelled in basketball, softball, kickboxing, weightlifting and
skiing. She is one of six children, and has always been naturally
competitive--- and tough she is, as she usually comes out the winner in
anything she puts her mind to compete in.
Woolum is a former Homecoming
Queen, and is presently a student at Marshall University. She is
very devoted to her family and enjoys working with kids.
TL Fox spoke with Woolum
on many times, and was impressed with her determination, and
commitment to continue to grow as a professional athletic.
As Woolum signs off when contacting WBAN
through emails: Angie "The Future Champion" Woolum.
Woolum believes in herself, and with her positive attitude and hard work,
she may achieve that goal of wearing a world belt.
Woolum takes pride in the fact that she is
highly spiritual. She has never been into drinking, smoking, or
drugs and has always felt very strongly about not doing those types of
things. One of her stronger passions is doing motivational
speaking in schools.
As Woolum said in an interview--It's her
goal to become a positive role model for young people. She hopes to take
the sport of female boxing to the next level, showing the public what it
takes to be a champion in this new, challenging arena. Her amateur record
is 13-0 (8KO's), and pro record is currently 3-1 (1KO).
Highlights of Woolum's boxing career:
3/8/00 Woolum defeated Linda Tenberg
with a 4-round Majority Decision in Mt. Pleasant, MI. Featherweight
10/14/99 Woolum (125) defeated Brenda
Rodriguez (128) in a 4-round unanimous decision in Columbus, Ohio.
6/3/99 Beverly Szymanski (127 1/2) defeated
Woolum (127 1/2) in a four-round unanimous decision. WBAN would
consider this fight a possible mismatch as Szymanski had much more
experience than Woolum who was just beginning to box. WBAN would
like to see a rematch since Woolum has gained more experience and skill.
