The Hottest Female Boxers

Updated on January 22, 2017

Beautiful Women From The World Of Female Boxing

To put it mildly, boxing is a pretty rough sport.
It's hard to stay beautiful with other people constantly trying to re-arrange your face.

But with it's inclusion in the 2012 Olympics, you can expect to see more and more women become interested in "The Sweet Science".
Here are a few women that have gotten into, and out of, the ring with their looks intact.

Laila Ali

Mia St. John

Professional female boxer, model, businesswoman, and Tae Kwon Do champion Mia St. John
Her record is 47 wins (18 knockouts), 13 losses and 2 draws.
Her last fight was a win over Christy Martin on August 14th, 2012 in Friant, California in a match for the vacant WBC female light middleweight title.
This would be the last match for both Mia and Christy as they both announced their retirements after the bout, leaving the title vacant once again.

Update:
Evidently Mia decided to change her mind about the retirement thing, because now she is scheduled to defend her WBC female light middleweight title against Molly McConnell on November 10th, 2012 in Bakersfield, California.

Update 2:
Maybe Mia should have stayed retired because on November 10th, 2012, she lost the WBC female light middleweight title, not to Molly McConnell, but to Tiffany Junot

Update 3:
Mia faced undefeated female boxer Cecilia Braekhus (21-0-0) on April 13th, 2013 and Cecilia stayed undefeated.
Mia lost via TKO in the third round.

Mia St. John vs. Kristy Follmar, May 18th, 2002 in Choctaw, Mississippi

    I just love to watch girls sweat.

    I wrote a hub myself with a blurb about Laila entitled "What Guy Doesn't Love a Good Girlfight?" but that's mostly about MMA and Rowdy Ronda Rousey.

    Anyway, this hub was quite stimulating.

    I remember early in Laila's career she fought the daughters of two of her fathers nemesis, Joe Frazier and George Foreman. She beat both of them soundly. I think some of boxing skills are genetic. I enjoyed reading your Hub on these splendid female athletes.

    Many of these ladies actually became boxers out of the girls with beauty myth that looks were all they had to go on so they excelled in the area of knockin em out in the ring. great hub..

    Despite their feminine beauty, I have no desire to be on the receiving end of a punch from one of these gorgeous female Boxers. Possibly, their punch would have less Newtons than a punch from a similar mass male Boxer. But, a women's punch is still going to hurt.
