The Best Women Boxers In History

For many centuries sports were divided between being for males and females. Most likely several decades ago people did not consider women could have been part of the sports such as boxing because it is considered to be the hard sport and there is no place for women in the men’s world.

For the past several years, the boxing industry has discovered many talented women who have debuted in sports and are one of the successful representatives of the industry. The history of boxing for women has not been as easy as for men as they had to fight not only in the ring but for the ring as well.

There is the list of some of the most prominent female boxers, who printed their own pages in the history:

Adams is the first female boxer to win Olympic gold medal at London 2012 and the first female boxer to become a double Olympic champion after winning a second gold medal in Rio 2016. Adams is also one of the most influential people in the UK as she is openly bisexual and was named as the most influential LGBT person in Britain. With this, she is also the first LGBT person to win the Olympic boxing Gold medal as well.
