Who is Suzanne Riccio-Major?
Riccio-Major was born in Pittsfield, Massachusetts in 1963. She began her career in professional boxing at the age of twenty-six, when she and Andrea Buchanan drew after five rounds on November 1, 1989, at Bristol, Tennessee. Riccio Major obtained her first victory, a five round decision win over Stacey Prestage, on her second bout, held on November 17, 1990 in Fort Myers, Florida.
Riccio then took five years away from boxing, deciding to return during the dawn of the often called "golden era of women's boxing", when she took on Sue Chase on June 3, 1996, at Warrensville Heights, Ohio. The then-thirty three-year-old Riccio won by a five round decision. On July 27, she lost to Theresa Arnold by an eight round decision at Rochester, Washington.
