Holly Holm Slams Boxing Media

Published On March 6, 2016 | By Niall Doran | Boxing News

Former UFC female champion Holly Holm lost her title last night at UFC 196, but not before having some strong words for the boxing media establishment earlier this week.


Holm, a former multiple world boxing champion in her own right prior to her mixed martial arts exploits, said in an interview with Ariel Helwani on the MMA Hour this week:

“There’s probably been more articles written in boxing now that I’m doing MMA. In a way, that’s great. Thank you guys for supporting me. But where were you my whole boxing career? I’ll call them out on it. I’m not trying to be sweet about it.”

Holly Holm was also a two time Ring Magazine female boxer of the year prior to getting involved with the UFC. She added further:

“I love that they’re supporting, the fact that it brings any attention to boxing, great. Because I want there to be more attention on women’s boxing, because I always wished it was there.”

Holm lost her title last night to new UFC women’s champion Miesha Tate.
