On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman focuses on the state of women's boxing.
We spoke with NABF strawweight champion Suszannah Warner (8-6, 2 KOs), who won a four-round unanimous decision in a non-title fight over the previously-unbeaten Becky Garcia (5-1, 3 KOs), Friday, Feb. 1, at the Fort McDowell Casino in Fountain Hills, Arizona.
There were two women's fights on Star Boxing's "Punchin' at the Paradise 8" card at the Utopia Paradise Theater in the Bronx, New York, which was held Thursday, Jan. 31. Right after her fight, we spoke with Alicia Ashley (14-7-1, 1 KO), who won an eight-round unanimous decision on that card over Brooke Dierdorff (4-2-1, 3 KOs) to win the vacant NABF women's super bantamweight title. We also spoke with former New York City Golden Gloves champion, super bantamweight Ronica Jeffrey, who won her pro debut, also on that card, with a four-round unanimous decision over Karen Dulin, also making her pro debut. And we spoke with Jill Diamond, NABF Women's Division Chair, a member of the WBC Championship Committee, and the World Boxing Cares Chair, about the state of women's boxing today.
