I found one of these fights and now a friend of mine in Germany as sent me this one.He did ask the waiter in the local Japanese eaterie if he could explain what is going on.To no avail,apparently the guy was born in Berlin and didn't speak Japanese.

I have mentioned before how Scotland as become the U.K.hotbed for fans of the ladies.How far some of these girls have come in a short time is amazing.Here you meet Fiona Fraser talking of an upcoming match,it's hard to believe that even now she is a relative newcomer to the pro ranks.
I don't know if the info is still up to date but Scotland's top daily the Daily Record reported she was still working in Tesco's phone shop last month.As her real self Fiona Harrison.

If you're squeamish look away now,this is one hell of a fight with plenty of blood spilled.
U.K.based fans will be pleased to note another venue in London,The Troxy.Situated on Commercial Road between the City and Canary Wharf,a few minutes walk from Limehouse Station.
One for fans in Germany this weekend,Saturday sees Elvira Alberti in her second pro fight against Hasna Turic in her first fight.Interesting here is that both girls come from a similar background to Susi Kentikian in that seventeen years old Miss Alberti was born in Kazakhstan and Miss Turic in Sarejova Bosnia.
You may have noticed that I have managed to increase my output recently,I should explain that recently while in Germany I met up with an old friend who is very much involved in the business and as great knowledge of the pro wrestling and boxing game in Europe.Not to mention a wife who as taken part at different levels.
So on different days he takes over the blog,sometimes completely and at others I add the wording.
The other plus being that his wife as promised to add info from her time in and out of the ring.
Fans in the U.S.will be familiar with the daughter of the wrestling Knight family from the U.K.Britani now known as Paige,but this Saturday sees her mother Sweet Saraya take on Mickie Knuckles for WSU in a promotion aptly named"Blood & Thunder".
Should be interesting this one as it's a no disqualification match and with Miss Knuckles love of blood who knows what could happen.

Probably from the mid 80s featuring two girls who earned their money before the days of posing and pouting Judy Martin(Judith Hardy) when she retired became a prison guard.
Little was known of Princess Victoria(Vickie Otis)after she retired,like many of the Indian females she probably returned to her reservation to live happily ever after with her Big Chief.

Which tv station gives the best coverage of female boxing?I always thought some of the best came from German tv,but this from Canal+ in France takes some beating.You could almost be ringside with the sweat and blood spraying down.
The bout comes from 2006 and after a battle like this it may be surprising that both girls have still been competing within the last year,despite both now being in their mid thirty's.

This is interesting for older fans in the U.K.from the Mildred Burke stable in the States this was probably filmed in the late fifty's or early sixties.Look at the amount of flesh showing on the wrestlers.
Older fans probably remember that even in the late seventies and early eighties most girls in the U.K.would still be wearing those sexless leotards.

Many fans around Europe will have visited the Canary Islands for their wonderful weather,be it summer or winter.
I doubt many would have expected to witness two lovely young ladies in a boxing bout.
Not too sure which island featured this bout though I am told there was mention of a bout in a March 2013 edition of the Tenerife News.
Angel McKenzie and Jennifer Retzke went the distance in their bout with Miss McKenzie winning on points.On the under card Marianne Marston made short work of a late substitute from Budapest in 68 seconds and two punches.Yet again everything that is wrong with the female fight game.
It may sound silly but I'm sure the promoter could have found a more worthy opponent outside a pub in Bethnal Green Road.
