Best Female Boxer

And in this corner, hailing from Baltimore by way of Germany, the welterweight terror... Claudia Nau. She is a true scrapper and trains like there's no tomorrow. Her weekly regime is 20 miles of road work, five days in the gym hitting the heavy bags and sparring with male boxers who she has to encourage to really hit her and not to pull any punches. After boxing for years as a hobby, she fought her first sanctioned fight in September, winning by decision after a fight her manager, Jake "the Snake" Smith, described as a "real war." If you bump into her on the street, just to be safe, say "Excuse me."
