Synopsis

World champion boxer, Michele Aboro, has never lost a fight. But her career was finished when her sponsors and the media decided she was no longer “sell able”. the force of her upper cut was unimportant. To succeed in the world of female boxing you had to be feminine, hetro, and pose nude. As well as a reflection on the place of lesbians and women in sport, this a fascinating documentary on sexuality and identity.
