NORTH ADAMS, Mass., June 15, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- A woman struggles to find equality in predominantly male sport, boxing. In this male-dominated empire of boxing, can a woman rise above discrimination to find her own place in the sport she loves? Author and Women's Boxing History Champion Gail A. Grandchamp shares her true story and contributions in women's boxing in her autobiographical book, Gail Grandchamp: A Fighter With Heart.

Grandchamp knew that she had a tough fight ahead when she decided to fight for women's rights in boxing. It took her eight hefty, uncompensated years in court before she experienced victory for women's right to box as amateurs under the United States Amateur Boxing Federation ABF, now known as USA Boxing. Gail Grandchamp: A Fighter With Heart tells the untold truth about the lawsuit that officially lifted the ban on woman's boxing to become amateur. The landmark case made history for Dallas Malloy and any other female boxer to walk right through it.

Boxing is not just about power but also about technique. For Grandchamp, it is the truest form of competition. Gaining women's rights was never about the male, female thing. According to the author, people need to know the truth and that this is the real deal -- a real story that should not perish. Grandchamp's passion and heart for boxing ran so deep that she became her own attorney. She has contributed every dime she had into court costs and has repeatedly turned down offers to relocate her talent in pursuit of the Olympic Dream, hoping that Women's Boxing being part of the Olympics will soon become a reality.

Any real male or female boxer who wants to know the truth of Woman's amateur boxing and its real founders will find this a fascinating read. Grandchamp is the real founder of women's boxing, and is The Real Women's History Champion.
