Description

The Miami Herald revealed "rampant corruption in men and women's professional boxing, including the fixing of major prize fights. The Herald found that more than 30 men's matches have been fixed or tainted with fraud since 1988, ... Matchmakers and promoters exploit many women fighters, pulling opponents from street prostitution and strip clubs with little of no boxing experience."
