Ana Julaton - Filipino-American Female Boxer

Ana Julaton - Filipino-American Female BoxerThis beautiful young lady is Filipino-American female boxer Ana Julaton.
I've done wrestlers, female mma fighters and kickboxers here before, but I think Ana may be the first boxer I've done anything on.
I did do an entry about her a while back on my female boxing blog though.

Ana was born on July 5th, 1980 in San Francisco, California.
Her last fight was a win over Kelsey Jeffries at the HP Pavilion, San Jose, California on Sptember 12th, 2009.
In that bout, Ana made history by becoming the first Filipino-American female boxer to win the International Boxing Association super bantamweight title.
And get was only her fifth professional fight!

Asian Women Wrestlers

If you check out my profile you will see that I do a lot of fitness blogs and wrestling blogs.
Now I know that pro wrestling is scripted, but you take a lot of abuse in and outside of the squared circle. And to do that day in and day out, you have to be in shape.
So I thought today I would combine by love or wrestling and my love of fitness and profile some of today's asian women wrestlers that have made an impact on the industry.
Starting out with....

Gail Kim - asian wrestlers

Gail Kim
Gail has wrestled for the WWE, TNA and some Indy promotions before that.
Gail was always athletic and before wrestling she was into basketball, volleyball, soccer, baseball, and badminton.
She also studied kinesiology at the University of Toronto, and nutrition at Ryerson University.

Lena Yada - asian women wrestlers

Lena Yada
Another young lady that worked for the WWE is the lovely Lena Yada.
Before the WWE, Lena was the first runner-up in the 2002 Ms. Venus Swimwear International pageant, Miss Hawaiian Tropic Japan and she competed in the quarter finals of the 2007 World Title of Tandem Surfing.

angela fong - asian wrestlers

Angela Fong
Angela Fong currently works for the WWE using the ring name "Savannah".
Although Angela is currently working as an interviewer, she has made great progress with her wrestling skills.

Hamada - asian women wrestlers

Ayako Hamada
Now know as simply "Hamada" in TNA, Ayako is the daughter of the legendary Gran Hamada.
Hamada may look a bit out of shape now, but this young lady has been wrestling since her debut in 1998.
And most of that time was in Japan and Mexico, and if you know anything about Lucha Libre or Joshi, you know wrestling is a LOT tougher there.

Su Yung - asian wrestlers

Su Yung
Independent female wrestler Su Yung is making quite a name for herself in Memphis Ladies Wrestling where she is the MLW Champion and 2008 Rookie of the Year.

Sumie Sakai - asian women wrestlers

Sumie Sakai
Sumie is another Indy wrestler that has been around quite awhile and really paid her dues.
She debuted in 1997, and is not only a pro wrestler, but an MMA fighter as well.
Before wrestling, Sumie was into Judo.

Jade Chung - asian wrestlers

Jade Chung
Another Indy wrestler, Jade started out as a valet, but made her way into the ring.
She has worked for Border City Wrestling, IWA Mid-South, the National Wrestling Alliance, Ring of Honor and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla.
