About Sue TL Fox - The creation of WBAN
Sue TL Fox, the
creator of WBAN boxed from 1976 -
1979, and re-entered into training in 1996 to get in shape. She heard
about the infamous Christy Martin vs. Diedre Gogarty
bout that was featured on a Mike Tyson card, and decided
that she wanted to investigate what was on the net about
the past fighters. To her disappointment there was
very little information and that is what inspired Fox to
create Women Boxing Archive Network. More
WBAN would like to have the boxing community connect with
WBAN on Twitter.
We are going to put up flash news that goes on in the sport and
otherwise. Our Twitter is called "WBAN Buzz". When you
