I got dolled up for the event – an exhausting procedure that always makes me grateful to have a career in a profession where leggings, sports bras and runners are the expected norm. As a pro fighter, no one really expects me to look good and by good I mean stylish and put together with hair done nicely and makeup on. It’d be weird if I was all put together. As a coach I have to look presentable but as a pro fighter I get away with sweaty clothes and messy hair; it’s awesome and it’s definitely a perk of the job. I’m expected to put all my effort into training not into my looks. But attending live fights, it’s a night out to get dolled up for.
Toronto has a solid boxing community and I’m very proud to be a part of it.
