An all-female amateur boxing card took place at Rosecroft Raceway in Ft. Washington, Md. on Sat., June 20. €We are getting these girls prepared to fight in the Olympics [in 2012 in London] because we really feel that it€s going to be yes,€ said €The Fight Lady€ Wanda Bruce, the promoter of the card. The International Olympic Committee has not yet confirmed if female boxing will be an event at the 2012 Summer Games.

€We are giving them a place to come and spotlight their talent every other month at Rosecroft. If we get a €yes€ for 2012, I see women€s boxing becoming bigger and better than it€s ever been,€ Bruce said.
