Is it the numbers of female bouts taking place in recent times that confuse the record keepers?
A fan of Sam Smiththe Leeds boxer made the point when I mentioned to him that I had heard nothing of her recently despite going to the supposed bible of results BoxRec.
According to their records Sam's last bout was on the 28th of February this year against France's 39 year old Super Featherweight Taoussy L'Hadji in Leeds.
No mention of her bout at the York Hall,Bethnal Green on the 25th of June where she beatBilitis Gaucher a 27 year old French girl.
Also were BoxRec to be believed Sam made her debut in March 2015 and yet fought a bout against Carl Mcnaulat The Villager,Bramley at least a year earlier and my informant tells me this was the second meeting of the pair.
