Every weekend, athletes lace up the gloves and entertain fans worldwide in the danger-filled fight business.
Now fans will have a chance to go behind the hype and meet the matriarchs behind the grind.
Web-based series Boxing Moms chronicles the pain and glory of the mothers of the sports world’s toughest athletes.
The series is created by boxing promoter, Michelle Rosado of Raging Babe who acts as the Executive Producer.
“Boxing moms juggle being counselors, punching bags, taxi drivers, nutritionists, life coaches, and business managers,” said Rosado. “We hear a lot about self-care. There aren’t enough spa days or meditation hours in the world that can balance the volatility of their everyday lives.”
Boxing Moms features a behind-the-scenes look as they balance the demands of motherhood and boxing. These mothers inspire while holding down jobs and caring for their families. These mothers have stood by their sons through it all.
“These stories need to be told. Every time I put on an event, it’s the mothers who are making things happen for their sons. It’s the moms who hustle tickets and act as de facto public relations reps. It’s the moms who are cooking for the fighters, and bear the brunt of their weight cut crankiness.”
Episode 1 is expected to be released on February 13th. Boxing Moms launches is available exclusively on YouTube and IGTV.
