  DIANE SYVERSON, a roller derby queen decided to try her hand at boxing in 1977.  She was a 26-year-old, 5''7" weighing 147 lbs.  SYVERSON had a good reach and used that  advantage when fighting her opponents.  SYVERSON was very popular in California due to her looking more like a double for television star, Dinah Shore,  than a boxer.
 
SYVERSON quickly became one of the top attractions among female boxers in California.  The same promoters that were pessimistic about female boxing just a year earlier were quickly starting to sing praise for the newly found athletics.

Although SYVERSON enjoyed boxing, she was a versatile woman who not only boxed, 

but was also interested in law enforcement and attended   criminal justice classes at an East Los Angeles College while working as a bricklayer.

In her first Los Angeles ring appearance in 1977, SYVERSON scored a close four-round decision over Theresa "Princess Red Star' Kibby-- the two had boxed a draw in Fresno just three weeks  prior to that bout.

SYVERSON's most impressive win in her brief pro career was a fourth-round knockout over Kim Maybee in Fresno, as Diane spotted her middleweight opponent almost 20 pounds.  

Diane's highlights:  She has also fought Lady Tyger Trimiar, was from comments of past fans of hers who have seen her fight, she was known to be one of the toughest fighters in the 70's and 80's.  (WBAN has numerous photos, one video of Syverson when she was doing some real amateur - type boxing for Judell Long, in a makeshift ring, that were sent in by fans.) Syverson didn't box that long, but the time she did, she became known by many.) These are not on the site any longer. (Inset photo: Syverson vs. Lady Tyger Trimiar - Los Angeles)
