Tough Girl Daily - 11th April - Special Guest Stacey Copeland!

April 11, 2017

Stacey was brought up at her family boxing gym and spent many happy hours down there from a young age learning how to box, and she would happily spar with the boys not knowing any different.

 

It was only as she got older, she was made aware how unusual her passion for boxing was. She’d wanted to take boxing to the next level, but because boxing was illegal for women, she had to put her dream on hold and instead decided to follow her other passion, football.

 

In 2017 Stacey has had the opportunity to turn professional and she has decided to go for it. You can learn more about her reasons why, her motivations and who she wants to inspire.
