Her dad, Javier "Baby Face" Gutierrez, was a California Boxing Hall of Famer who didn't think girls should play sports, let alone box, but Blanca Gutierrez fell hard for the sport anyway.

Gutierrez became a national-level kickboxer at 32 -- she even fought Carina Moreno on ESPN once -- and opened her own gym when she felt unwelcome at most men's gyms.

Nowadays, she's the promoter of the Beautiful Brawlers all-female boxing shows in the San Francisco Bay area, trying to kick the door open for women's boxers in the U.S.

We spoke to Gutierrez about her life, her dad, and her passion for the Sweet Science on the Nov. 27 edition of The Ringside Boxing Show.

Before Blanca, we break down Lomachenko's stunning domination of Nicholas Walters -- what the win did for Lomachanko, and what the defeat did to Walters -- with expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti.

Her mother didn't think girls should participate in sports at all, but that plan didn't fly with Melissa McMorrow. She became an Division III All-America soccer star at Carnegie-Mellon University -- one of the nation's best academic schools -- then, entirely by chance, she became a boxer.

McMorrow did pretty well at that, too, beating Suzi Kentikian (29-0) for the WBO ad WIBF flyweight belts in 2012. She still holds the WBC crown four years later.

This lively conversation with "Mighty" Melissa is preceded by a postmortem of Canelo-Khan, and a look ahead to Canelo-Golovkin, by expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti.

 She was a Division III All-America soccer star who, literally by spur-of-the-moment decision, turned to boxing. Melissa McMorrow went on to win a Golden Gloves national championship, turned pro, and, a year ago, knocked off 29-0 Suzi Kentikian in Germany to win two flyweight title belts.

 "Mighty Melissa" joined us Oct. 13, 2013 on The Ringside Boxing Show to discuss her life, career, and the curiously quiet German boxing fans, among other topics.

  This is a lively, animated interview with one of female boxing's brightest stars.

 She was a martial artist until she turned 24, and didn't make her pro boxing debut until she was 27. But Ana Julaton was a world champion at the end of her eighth pro fight. Now 33, "The Hurricane" is hot on the trail of a fourth crown, while working hard to elevate women's boxing to another level.

  She joined us on July 28, 2013 to discuss her life, her career, the future of women's boxing, her passion for hamburgers, and whether she'd consider becoming a Hollywood action star like Gina Carano.

  Don't miss this lively interview with a charismatic star.

Claressa Shields grew up fighting (and beating) boys on the mean streets of Flint, a habit that led her from the basketball court to the boxing gym. At 16, Shields interrupted her senior year in high school for a trip to London, where she became America's first-ever Olympic gold medalist in women's boxing.

On October 14 -- a day after she won the National PAL Championship -- we asked Shields how her life has changed since she made history.

This is a great interview with the new face of women's boxing in America.

Kaliesha West and Ava Knight are world champions who usually have to leave the country to find a big fight, and might have to change genders someday to earn a big paycheck.

 Only 23, Rico Ramos appears poised to vault into boxing's limelight with an 18-0 record that includes 10 KOs. The former amateur star grew up in the Watts section of South L.A. -- one of America's most-infamous neightborhoods -- but stayed clean and now stands on the threshold of glory in the super bantamweight division.

 Alesia Graf, a native of Belarus, is a two-time super flyweight world champion from Stuttgart, Germany, who grew up in a Russian orphanage. The 30-year-old boxer, nicknamed "The Tigeress," currently is exploring the possibilities in the United States.
