I just finished the book “The Boxer’s Heart” by Kate Sekules (former pro boxer). This was an excellent read and it really hit home on a lot of things. I would recommend this book to every female fighter and to any man who trains women. It’s on Amazon, though my copy has a different subtitle – How I Fell In Love With the Ring instead of Lessons From the Ring.
Here’s the description from Amazon
The Boxer’s Heart is a brilliantly candid memoir and the first-ever guide to the world of women’s boxing. Written by Food and Wine editor Kate Sekules, it tells the story of how an average athlete converted her visceral dislike of violence into a short but eventful career as a professional boxer makes irresistible reading for both fans and foes of what used to be “The Manly Art.” Sekules’s account unfolds with the pace and depth of a great novel, crammed with larger-than-life characters and piercing observations. Any woman who has grappled with anger and trust, been nagged by insecurity at the gym, or wondered what it feels like to throw a punch will identify with this witty and honest account of the “sweet science of bruising.”
Check it out! 😀
