The Private Collection didn't do too many boxing bouts and many of those featured girls with their breasts covered.

When wrestling was on our tv in the U.K.the bouts never seen were those involving the ladies which were only promoted on the independents.
This is where viewers in Wales were lucky as the Welsh Language Channel featured Reslo from promoter /wrestler the late Orig Williamswho featured many of the female stars of the day.
Interestingly Starr was the name used by the "blue eyes" tag team ofTina Starr,she of the superb body and her partner Bradford born Julie Starr
at only 5'3" and 126lbs almost cannon fodder for the bigger girls.
from Bournemouth whose father was a promoter and whose mother also wrestled,hardly a surprise then that she started in the business at seventeen and one of the long running fueds that ran and ran was with Tina.

I have mentioned before that Bethlehem Boxing Club in Leeds had made it's debut on local tv,but not being near to it's transmitting area I wasn't able to tell anything of the content.
My thanks go out to a fan who prefers to remain anon,but who as updated me.This Fridays edition featured a couple of girls bouts in the second half of the show in the first Carly MacKenzie of York a thirty six year old blonde outpointedMel Halstead from Bridlington over four rounds.Mel as the pic shows is a good all round sportswoman boxing,football and running only a few of her interests.
The second contest was a international championship match over six rounds,this saw local favourite Sophie Varleywin the European Boxing Federation title from Mandy Cortis from Malta.
My contact also believes that Sophie will be in action again in early October.

My thanks to the fan in West Yorkshire who supplied the info on the scene in Leeds recently.For his latest update he as a couple of diary dates for fans ofSam Smith.
On the 4th of October she is down to face Angel McKenzieover eight rounds at the Pryzm,Leeds.
It may be a little ambitious to schedule this for eight rounds as Angel doesn't have the most impressive record having lost thirty of her thirty four contests.
Moving on to the 29th of November she is to take on unbeaten Christina Linardatou Durancurrently fighting out of Greece.
Interestingly all of her wins seem to have been in the land of her birth the Dominican Republic.Again the fight takes place at Pryzm in Leeds.
Action from the Potteries area of the U.K.promoted by All Star Wrestling of Birkenhead reputed to be the longest serving promoter in the U.K.
All Star is after 45 years a family concern headed by Brian Dixon

I have mentioned a few times the newer girls and promotions in the U.K.so to hear that one of those mentioned as made the world of television is good news.
Sam smith is a young lady from Leeds who as been getting good ratings recently as the W.B.F.Lightweight Champ and the club she is involved with Bethlehem Boxing where she is a personal trainer and runs the Nutrition Shop.
Back to my initial point and a fan from the West Yorkshire area informs that those living in that general area can see a regular program from the club on a Friday evening's on a local tv station from Leeds which is on channel eight but is only available in that area and only through a Freeview Box.
Having never seen the show I have no idea if the girls feature,but it may be useful for updates on promotions.
