Woman Crowned Cell Block Champ

Samson Sor Siriporn believe it or not is a girl with that name. But the name is correct in alluding to her strength as she dispatched the reigning WBC light flyweight champ in the women's division to claim the title. What is unusual about this situation is that Siriporn (talk about a porn name) is an inmate in a Thai prison, a convicted drug dealer. I wonder if she got so good at fighting by battling for her life in the showers. What's interesting is that her boxing career could result in an early release from prison. The moral of the story: Keep fighting. Fight guards, inmates, whoever you can. Just get that title shot.
