Who is Alicia Ashley?

Alicia Ashley is a women's boxing participant who is the current WBC female world super bantamweight champion. Ashley is a Jamaican-American. Born in Jamaica, she moved to the United States at a young age.

Ashley began her professional boxing career on January 29, 1999, defeating Lisa Howarth by a six round split decision, at Atlantic City, New Jersey. On her second professional boxing fight, held at Halifax, Canada, she suffered her first defeat, when she was outpointed over six rounds by Doris Hackl on June 20 of that year.

Ashley rebounded from that defeat with an eight round decision win over Bonnie Canino June 27 at Tunica, Mississippi.

After her first three fights, she took a seven-month hiatus from boxing, but on February 11, 2000, she returned, losing by an eight round decision to Mexico's Laura Serrano, also in Tunica. After splitting her two next fights, she met "Downtown Leona Brown": on June 29, she beat Brown on points over eight rounds at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Next, she fought Kelsey Jeffries, who, until that bout had lost only one of her nine fights. On September 3, Ashley beat Jeffries by a six round unanimous decision in Nevada.

Ashley had only one fight in 2001, a decision victory, and then, on January 13, 2002, she made her Las Vegas debut, drawing in six rounds with Layla McCarter.
