Boxing, since the downfall of Mike Tyson, has declined to a niche sport, and women’s boxing is a niche within a niche. I’ve seen some advertise the Hammer vs. Shields fight as the most important fight in the history of women’s boxing. In my opinion, it isn’t, and pre-fight, it’s not in the top five.
