The International Olympic Committee voted yesterday to add women's boxing to the 2012 Olympics in London.
Women's boxing has boomed in Britain since 2005, with the number of registered female fighters rising from 50 to 600, PA reported.
Softball and baseball were considered for inclusion in the 2016 Games along with squash, karate, roller sports, golf and rugby, but the board decided to consider only the last two.
Kick some ass!
