Lightbulb The Cockney Championess

In the Land of Pain..

What?..What's the matter?..The Mad Hatter..Yeah, the phone's off the hook..

Britain's first body to regulate boxing in Britain in the 1880s, refused to acknowledge women fighters..With no rules governing the sport, women's boxing in the 1800s had a reputation for being even fiercer than we know it today..Hattie Madders, winner of the Most Scary Woman in the UK title in 1883 was the only woman to hold the boxing heavyweight championship of the world title..In the US, the first women's championship match occurred in New York in 1888, when Hattie Leslie beat Alice Leary in a brutal fight..Round 5..

2 women box in an undisclosed location..

Charley Mitchell came from Birmingham, England and fought John L. Sullivan in 1883, knocking him down in the first round..Their second meeting took place in 1888 on the grounds of a chateau at Chantilly, France in driving rain.. It went on for more than two hours and the contest was considered a draw...He died in Hove, England of what was called tabes dorsalis, also known as locomotor ataxia, on 3 April 1918..Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author of the Sherlock Holmes stories, completed his doctorate on tabes dorsalis in 1885, also known as syphilitic myelopathy, is a slow degeneration of the neural tracts primarily in the dorsal columns of the spinal cord & dorsal roots..Left untreated, it can lead to paralysis, dementia, and blindness and is more frequent in males than in females... couldn't talk on the phone..I can't explain it..It's er, it's dangerous for everyone..I've been following him on my own time..You know, you're crazy if you think you've heard the last of this Guy...
