Graciela Casillas, of Ventura County,  was a real pioneer for women's boxing. She made her pro debut at the first all-women's boxing card on July 13, 1979 at the Los Angeles Sports Arena. She was the only fighter (male or female) to hold both a boxing and kickboxing world title at the same time. She discusses all the difficulties she went through during those days to even be allowed to perform in competition. At the end she has a great message to all about self-defense. If you are a female fighter in boxing or MMA listen to Graciela's story!
