She won her first five fights before losing her sixth fight in 2001.

Shortly after this loss she retired to focus on being a mum and other passions, including boxing promotion.

Former heavyweight champion George reportedly did not like her being in the ring and pleaded with her to end her career.

“This is not what I wanted for you,” she says her father pleaded when she told of her dream about following in his footsteps.
