In the sport of boxing, you have many old school promoters, that just don't like the fact of women are boxing. There are those who think women shouldn't play basketball but hey they are, and why can't we display women boxing to the masses let the public decide if they don't like it or not, don't dictate to the public that they shouldn't like women boxing.
Here is a post made by boxing writer and fan of the sport, Vivek Wallace made about a promoter who didn't want to be named, about why they don't take chances with women boxers. "Many women boxers have issues with boyfriends and they can get pregnant" so that's the risk, that they believe keeps promoters from investing their money.
Kaliesha West is a two division world bantamweight champion of women boxing who is 16-1 as a pro, and had this to say about the promoters comments, "If a woman has a sceduled bout and winds up pregnant she is not a professional or a serious prize fighter, that risk is more on the female than the promoter, because no female fighter wants to be out 9 plus months, so we are careful about that. You don't see UFC's Dana White worrying about if Ronda Rousey is going to get pregnant. These are all excuses I have heard many times before.boxing needs to wake up."
