Diary of a Female Boxing Champ
Mar 29, 2016
Alicia "Slick" Ashley is a multiple-time world champion—and at 48-years-old, she holds the record for oldest female boxer to win a championship title. In a sport that consistently focuses on male fighters, this short documentary by Everything Relates gives us a glimpse into the realm of female boxing, and the particular challenges and advantages of being a woman in the ring. “I don't fight, I box,” Ashley asserts at the beginning of the film, as she takes us into her world of sweat and determination.
