Book Synopsis:
Based on a true story, Fighting Chance is written by Alicia Doyle, an award-winning journalist who discovered boxing at age twenty-eight in the late 1990s when she went on assignment at a
boxing gym for at-risk youth called Kid Gloves. 

For two years, she simultaneously worked as a newspaper reporter while training and competing as a boxer, making her one of only a few hundred women in America who infiltrated this male-dominated sport. During her boxing career, she won two Golden Gloves championship titles and earned three wins by knockout – and her pro debut at age thirty in the year 2000 was named The California Female Fight of the Year. 

Fighting Chance offers an inside look at what’s considered the toughest sport known to man.  


Biography: 
Alicia Doyle is an award-winning journalist who discovered boxing at age twenty-eight in the
late 1990s when she went on assignment at a boxing gym for at-risk youth called Kid Gloves. 

For two years, she simultaneously worked as a newspaper reporter while training and competing as a boxer, making her one of only a few hundred women in America at the time who infiltrated this male-dominated sport. During her boxing career, she won two Golden Gloves championship titles and earned three wins by knockout—and her pro debut at age thirty in the year 2000 was named The California Female Fight of the Year. 

A journalist for more than two decades, Alicia has earned a reputation as “The Writer

Reviews on Back Cover of Book:
"Absorbing and brilliant! Over 22 years ago I shared the ring with Alicia Doyle...twice. Fighting Chance transported me back to relive those experiences from HER perspective. It was amazing! I highly recommend this book!" – "Amazing" LAYLA MCCARTER, 8 time, 5 division Boxing World Champion & California Boxing Hall of Fame Inductee
"No punches pulled by the hard-hitting Ms. Doyle in her true life novelistic rendering of what it'slike to punch her way to fame! A knockout!!" – IVOR DAVIS, Investigative Journalist & Best-Selling Author of Manson Exposed: A Reporter's 50-Year Journey into Madness and Murder

"Alicia Doyle is a shining example of an individual who continues to fight to save herself from the dark side of life by mentoring troubled young children at Kid Gloves. She is their guiding light, a light that doesn't often shine for them. Fighting Chance is exactly that, a chance to survive in the ring and in life. A must read..."— ROD HOLCOMB, Producer/Director

"Alicia instilled what Kid Gloves Boxing teaches—the A.B.C. Backwards: Conceive, Believe,
Achieve. Building CONFIDENCE in all she does, round by round. A true role model for all."— ROBERT ORTIZ SR., owner of Kid Gloves Boxing
