“You should become a model”. It’s a comment Kaye Scott has heard more than once throughout her amateur boxing career. But Kaye proved the doubters wrong by competing in the 2014 & 2018 Commonwealth Games, winning a silver medal at the 2016 Women’s World Championships and moving from the amateurs to the pros this year. Kaye sits down with host Sam Squiers to share about: How she went from doing boxercise at her local gym to competing on the world stage. Being part of the first women’s fight after female boxing was decriminalised in NSW in 2009. Why men are challenged by women’s boxing and how she responds to their comments. The Amateur Boxing Associations’ rule to mandate all female boxers to wear skirts (and then being told that she was distracting judges by wearing a skirt). Competing at the 2014 & 2018 Commonwealth Games and preparing the upcoming games in Birmingham . The decision to go pro. And why she hates people commenting on her age
