Or is Rousey the first?
ali's daughter was pretty famous
and KID's two sisters were pretty big in japan for their wrestling
More people knew Ali's daughter than Rousey. Hard to call either a superstar though.
Up until Rousey it was Gina (Maxim, movies, etc....).
Laila Ali was far bigger than Rousey is now. That is almost completely because she was Ali's daughter, though.
I can't name one female boxer, so no..
I'm a big boxing fan, and the only current female boxer I can name is Katie Taylor.
Cynthia Rothrock -making B movies in the 80's was basically a combat sport
There was 1 chick wh was knockin ppl out in the 90s but i cant remember her name. Laila but her up in one of her last fights. I wana say christie martin or sumthin
Ali's fame had much to do with her old man though. Rousey took some Olympic hardware home first.
I Dont consider none of them superstars though.
oh yeah, rihanna became a bigger star after her back and forth fight with chris brown
Not sure what that has to do with who is more popular. She was still a good boxer. Nobody knew who Rousey was from the Olympics anyway, or cared anything about female judo.
Leila Ali, Lucia Rijker and Christy Martin were all really big in the boxing community during their primes.
Let's not also forget that Gina was a certified star, although that star has fizzled drastically since losing to Cyborg, shooting that flick and subsequently vanishing.
Germaine de randamie in Kickboxing.
Not really, but I'll take any opportunity to post this KO.
