Watch Heather Hardy: It's ok to be a fighter, it's ok to be tough

I started watching this short, listening out for a quote to use in the post which would draw you in. But the whole script narrated in that wonderful New York accent by boxer Heather 'The Heat' Hardy is something you need to hear.

A mother, a boxer, a survivor of Hurricane Sandy but above all a fighter (WBC international super bantamweight champion) and a super-hero to her little girl.

Take five minutes and three seconds out of your Friday, and be inspired to hit the road, hit the gym and hit those pads.

She fights out of the famous Gleason's Gym , founded 1937 and now home to so many of America's women fighters. Find Gleason's on Facebook.

Gleason's is also home to Malissa Smith who's written the definitive history of women's boxing if you want to know more. Order it on Amazon or through her website Girlboxing.
