Active meets intimates in several boxing-themed editorials leading up to the Olympics.

Apr 10, 2012


Is it too early to start getting excited about the Olympics? We were extremely riveted by NPR affiliate WNYC’s in-depth coverage of the U.S. women’s boxing trials, and boxer Sue Jaye Johnson’s compelling photo essay piqued our interest in the sport even further. Perhaps no other event is getting more pre-Games hype, and rightfully so– the London Olympics marks the first time women will step into the boxing ring.

Now, hot on the heels of Jennifer Lopez’s knock-out V Magazine spread, several publications are following suit with their own boxing-themed editorials. From depicting female fighters in their workout and essential supportive gear to the glamorous (lingerie-clad) women behind the scenes, these high-octane photo spreads show how sexy tough girls can be.

“…Our party has lost a number of races in recent years, both by so-called ‘establishment’ candidates and tea party candidates, not because of bad messages but bad messengers: undisciplined candidates with little local support and who lacked the fundraising prowess necessary to win campaigns,” Collegio continued. “To win more races, we need better candidates, and that’s what this group will support.”
