First woman on International Kickboxer cover

It's all happening for women's boxing - and looks like the love is spreading. You might have read interviews here with Australian MuayThai fighter Caley Reece - a favourite fighter on this blog. 

I heard from Reece this week that the next edition of Aussie magazine International Kickboxer features her on the front cover. First time ever that this mag - best-selling martial arts magazine in Australia and New Zealand - has put a woman on the front. 

I started my journalism career with this magazine, my first-ever published story was an interview with pioneering promoter Lucy Tui. So I'm doubly excited to see a woman finally on the cover.
