There’s a long history of accomplished women in the boxing world. You might think that women who choose to fight might not be the most feminine or attractive, but that is absolutely NOT the case.
I’ve rounded up the hottest female boxers of all time. These women consistently showed their talent, broke records, and are role models for other women looking to pursue a boxing career. Not only are they beautiful, but they are also deadly!
Lauryn is a huge figure in the Australian sports and television world. She participated in The Celebrity Apprentice Australia and was a Miss Teen International.

Alright, I know what you’re thinking – isn’t Paige an MMA fighter? Yes, and she’s one of the hottest to ever do it. BUT, she’s also a boxer. Most recently, she fought (lost) Britain Hart in her debut with the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship
She discovered boxing because she wanted to find a way to keep herself from being bullied in school. She’s a mixed martial artist and before fighting for the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship she had an up-and-down career with the UFC.
As her career progressed, Paige found herself signing other kinds of contracts; she appeared as a guest on Dancing with the Stars and Chopped. Her earnings outside of the cage have made her a very well compensated MMA fighter.

Cecilia’s career involves both boxing and kickboxing. From 2014 to 2020, she held the title of the female welterweight champion. As if that streak isn’t impressive enough, she is the only woman to date who held the WBA, WBC, IBF, and WBO titles at the same time.
Holding not one but three Guinness World Records for boxing in 2018, Cecilia is well-deserving of her spot among the hottest boxers. Of her 37 fights, she only lost once. It’s no wonder she is only one of eight boxers, both male and female, to take all four major world boxing titles simultaneously.

Also called “The Hurricane,” Ana is famous for winning a world title in a short amount of time. It took her only five professional fights to win the IBA Super Bantamweight title.
Not only is Ana a successful boxer, but she’s also an advocate for normalizing female boxing. In 2008, she participated in a campaign to open a female boxing category at the Beijing Olympics. The change didn’t happen then, but no doubt her efforts helped to open this opportunity for the 2012 London Olympics.
