After watching Holly Holm get completely out-boxed by a muay thai fighter, I'm curious as to how female boxing stacks up. I don't watch WMMA usually and never watch women's boxing, but I thought the outcome was interesting. I remember boxers like Laila Ali and Ann Wolfe and assumed that although obviously the purses were much lower, there would be enough of a talent pool and enough interest to ensure some level of quality. But a male muay thai champion would get destroyed if a fight primarily involved boxing vs a legit boxing world champion, so clearly the difference between female boxing professionals and their muay thai/WMMA counterparts is a lot narrower than the men. Curious as to why that is. Is women's boxing not much more popular than women's kickboxing?
