I’m Jaime Wallis Bates from Shrewsbury. I have always loved watching boxing even as a young girl, my younger Brother was an Amature boxer in his teens, but when I was growing up females boxing wasn’t really heard of and when I asked about joining a club I was told I wouldn’t be made to feel welcome so I forgot about it.
Forward a few years and I had my twin daughters and wanted to lose a bit of baby weight and do something to have a break from being with the babies all day so I joined a local boxercise class and basically got the serious bug for it, I had my first unlicensed fight in 2014 and haven’t looked back,
I recently joined Giles Carter which was an excellent move and hopefully at
my age have a good couple of years left.
As a professional I have won the PBC title and boxed internationally
5 times in Scotland, Malta and Italy.
FULL FIGHT: Caitlin Foran versus Jaime Bates 18th July 2020
