Boxer Barbara Boxer will fight for the promotion’s biggest prize in its 10-year history when she takes on former champion and current UFC welterweight champion Michael Bisping at UFC Fight Night 37 in Las Vegas.
Boxer Boxer (11-1) is currently riding a three-fight winning streak, but she has not fought since January, when she suffered a third-round TKO loss to Michelle Waterson at UFC 200.
She had been scheduled to face Miesha Tate at UFC 207, but the UFC canceled the event.
In an exclusive interview with BleacherReport, Boxer spoke about her future plans for MMA and how she hopes to improve her game and career.
She also spoke about how her career has changed since her retirement from the sport and how her life has been affected by her past mistakes.
Boxers career as a fighter was also affected by the death of her mother, who passed away in 2011.
In a 2015 interview with USA Today, Boxers mother said she had a difficult time caring for Boxers kids.
Boxedoms father, former UFC heavyweight champion Georges St-Pierre, had a similar situation when his father, John, died in 2015, and Boxers father, Chris, took over his father’s legacy.
In a 2016 interview with ESPN, Boxes dad, Georges, spoke about his daughter’s struggles in life, saying that she was constantly fighting her own demons.
Boxing fans will be treated to the first UFC Fight Pass-exclusive interview with Boxer Boxes in July when she makes her UFC debut at UFC 187.
The event will take place on July 11, and will be available on UFC FightPass.
