    WBC ranks female boxers for first time; WBA to follow

    The World Boxing Council ranked female boxers for the first time Tuesday, and the World Boxing Association said it will soon do the same.

    I just read this article. I think this is a good thing. It will get the other women boxers' names out there. That will help market the industry more.

    I expect to see more female boxing matches. Hopefully, they will continue putting on these fights along with the men like this weekend with Laila Ali and Mike Tyson this weekend.

    The backing of the WBC & WBA add legitimacy for women's boxing.

    I hope this helps get rid of phonies like Laila Ali so that the real female fighters can get some recognition.
