VERONICA "Frisco" DOYLE PRESS CONFERENCE
At a recent press conference before the fight, Veronica Doyle, longtime member of DWBL
and one time champion, announced that her January 31st bout will be her last.
<<It was a difficult decision to make,>> she said, standing next to her manager
<<Audrey and the DWBL have been wonderful to me. It’s been a great five years and I’ve had
some terrific fights with some of the best boxers around. But it’s time to move on to the next stage
of my life, and make room for others to move up in the DWBL>>
Her manager, Audrey, went on to add: <<Veronica is a good fighter and a good friend.
She’ll be missed but I respect her decision to move on, and I wish her nothing but the best>>
Veronica joined the DWBL in August of 2004 and after 114 fights, “Frisco” Doyle leaves with 49 wins
(8 by knockout), 50 losses and 15 draws, including a short stint as DWBL champion.
Although she’s leaving the fight game, she’s not leaving boxing behind.
<<I’m moving back to San Francisco to be near my parents, but I’m also opening up a women’s gym
for boxing and MMA. With the popularity of mixed martial arts, and women’s boxing finally in the Olympics,
I think the time is right. And who knows, one day you might see some of my students in the DWBL>>
<<With me as their manager, of course>> joked Audrey.
At the same press conference Audrey took the opportunity to announce she has signed on Nadira Gul,
a promising young fighter she discovered on a visit back home in Trinidad.
<<I see a lot of promise in Nadira,>> Audrey said <<She’s fast and has a natural instinct. I learned a lot
taking Veronica to the top of the DWBL, and Nadira has the potential to reach the same heights>>
