The number of professional women boxers in the UK is small, making it a challenge to produce good matches.
However the bout between Areti Mastrodouka and Kristine Shergold, on Miranda Carter's 'Seize The Day' bill at York Hall, showed that women can fight with a skill and class that rates comparison with the men. Areti has now gone on to win her first belt, the International Masters Super Featherweight title (at York Hall, 18th November 2012).
Left Jab will continue to look for further opportunities to promote women's fights.
