Descrizione

When Jane Couch won the women’s boxing world title, it wasn’t even legal for her to box at home in Britain. The struggle to get her sport recognised would become her most gruelling fight, as she faced scepticism and sexism from many quarters. She told Jo Fidgen about the physical and mental strain she endured during her career, and how she had to rebuild her life after boxing.
