Research Strategy

To provide the requested information, we leveraged the most reputable sources available in the public domain. This was accomplished by combing through boxing news sources, sports analyses, athlete and women boxing archives. Sites ranking the greatest fighters of all time provided us with top female boxers and kickboxers' names. These sites included ESPN, Ranker, Sportsshow, BOXREC, Tapology, Bolavip, and other websites. We then used sites like Awakening Fighters and Boxerlist to identify specific detail about the fighters. Details collected included their age, place of origin, weight class, and titles won, including the years the championships were won. Since most of the female champions won various titles in different years, we thought it best to arrange the list from the youngest to the oldest champion instead of arranging it based on the year a title was won. We also limited our list to only fighters who had won a title. We excluded famous fighters who are globally known but had not won a championship.
