What is it with friends of the fighters?They aren't interested in stepping in to stop the fight,but should a bare breast be exposed they instantly spring into action.

From Huxleys Neue Welt a concert venue dating back to the 1950's in Berlin action at Super Flyweight with 23 years old Aida Halac from Bosnia suffering her first loss to Plamena Dimova a 26 years old Bulgarian now resident in Leipzig,Germany in only her second bout.
I can only say I'm baffled with this,it appears to come from something called Box Gala in Leszno,Poland and featured on TVP Sport.
Not understanding the language and relying on translate it would appear a volunteer from the crowd stepped into the ring to take a beating.
Anyone know different?Please let us know!!!

This is becoming a little like the tour of the U.K.as today we take in the Highland Games at the Bridge of Allan just north of Sterling in Scotland.
In between the pipe band and a spot of caber tossing,that's large men tossing a large telegraph pole,not what you might be thinking,we have the wrestling where most of the men seem to want to take on the wee blonde lassie.

You have to give the girl credit even back in 1932 she looked the part.
The small amount of information still around suggests that Miss De Vesci was mostly a dancer,but also taught boxing for women as well as clocking up 29 wins,17 defeats and 4 draws herself.She is believed to have died in 1970.
Young ladies from the ten stone class in this short bout.The event took place in the English Lake District at Grasmere a great favourite for tourists in North West of England.
A well known technique in the wrestling world used in all classic style contests is the"cumberland throw"the origins of which lie in these style of contests.

I have to admit that this is one I was unaware of.Cumberland and Westmorland Wrestling is well known in the North of the U.K. and can be traced back in history.
It was a sport taken part in by burly farmers in times gone by but this is the first mention of girls I have heard.
Another resident of Germany is Hasna Tukicfrom Bosnia now at home in Regensberg and a record of 6 wins and 3 losses over the last couple of years.
Her opponent Arma Okugic is still residrnt in Bosnia and at twenty six as three losses in three bouts.
