When Nicola Adams became the first woman to box in the Olympics London 2012 for GB, she won a gold medal. At the same Olympics Ireland’s Katie Taylor made history by winning gold, making her the greatest sports woman ever in Ireland. 1 Olympic gold, 5 World Amateur championships gold, 6 European golds and 5 European Union Amateur golds.
Since then there has been a rise in women getting more involved in the sport.
The Aero Kick gym is affiliated to both England Boxing & The Malta Boxing Commission, opening the realms of both amateur and professional boxing.
"If you box you are a risk taker. If you are a woman and you box you are a risk taker and a rule breaker. Boxing is like a victorious repossession of strength for a woman, a more mature claim to womanhood. Who says high heels and a deadly left hook are contradictory?"
