I watched Torres vs. Nava II and I have to say that it was the best fight that I have seen since Vasquez/ Marquez III. Are we at a point as fans, society, etc. to give props were props are due. It was a great scrap and came down to one point on each scorecard. Will there ever be a time where the female fighters with take top nods?

or maybe a fight between Viper and EAlban would be a fight of the year in boxing of women..good fight there...

Negative. Unless they was fighting in a tub of KY butt-ass-naked.

Female boxers will unlikely ever become more popular than the WNBA in the USA. World wide it seems to be getting better traction.

I still wouldn't watch it, but maybe that's generational.

BTW, I had dinner last night with a beautiful hulk of a woman who apparently decked Kirk Gibson in Detroit back in the 1970s. She was the biggest and most visually imposing person at the table but she is still attractive as hell.

How damn old is this woman? Would have already been mature in the 70's. Was she born in the 50's or 60's? lol. Could be looking at a 60+ year old woman.

Do you even know who Kirk Gibson is?

Yeah, she's no spring troll but beauty entails more than perfect proportions at our age. You'll understand in 20 or 30 years. Don't get me wrong, she's not my type (no Mrs. Beardo) but she could carry you home if you got over the line (and kick your young ass clean and proper if you didn't do her right). laugh.gif

No I don't, but that part wasn't the thing that intrigued me about that post.

No, I understand what you're saying, I'm soon to be considered in my late 20's, and I seen women in there 50's-60's where I think they look great for their age and think to myself "I would be going alright if my woman looked like that at her age".

But she does sound old, so I was curious to how old this woman was, lol. It was in the 70's.

I think it was 78 or 79. Gibson was known to be a hard partying womanizer. He was drunk and started groping the wrong young women. When my brother told the story I was skeptical because I thought she was considerably younger than she would have to be in the story. I don't know specifically but I narrowed her age down to around 50. Her younger sister was just flat out smoke for her mid 40s.

I mean it was like Gatti/Ward IV. All of the boxing sites that mentioned said it was a war, so I gave it a go. It's weird seeing women fighting like that, but it was boxing match we would be talking about for ages if they were dudes. HBO would do that bullshit "New Years" line up and it would have made the cut. Just wondering. Women are about to box in the Olympics and I can see a bunch of the U.S. Women becoming stars. No De La Hoya, but Carano famous.
