Four-time world boxing champion, Alicia 'Slick' Ashley on Arise and Shine

I must admit to having never realised how little a female boxer was paid in the States till I watched this interview from last year with Alicia Ashley.
Another fact that had escaped me was her age,at 48 years and 81 days she became the oldest recorded champion female boxer.
A fact that dispels my thoughts about those fighters in Europe starting out in their thirties,as by my reckoning Alicia would have been around twenty eight when she first fought as a pro.
