It has been announced that former World Boxing Federation (WBF) Womens World Light Welterweight Champion Myriam Lamare from France is among the five retired boxers inducted into the International Womens Boxing Hall of Fame in 2018.

The other four 2018 boxer-honorees are fellow former world champions Belinda Laracuente, Jessica Rakoczy, Mary Joe Sanders and Vonda Ward.

Already inducted are some of the biggest female names the sport has to offer, such as Christy Martin, Regina Halmich, Anne Wolfe, Lucia Rijker and Laila Ali.

Myriam Lamare, 22-4 (10), won the WBF World Light Welterweight title in October of 2009, and made two successful defenses. She has also held WBA, IBF and WIBF world championships.

Lamare only lost to top fighters Anne Sophie Mathis (twice) and Holly Holm, both former WBF World Champions, as well as unified world welterweight champion Cecilia Breakhus in what was Lamare´s final fight in February of 2014.

In announcing her induction, the International Womens Boxing Hall of Fame writes the following about Lamare:

Myriam Lamare epitomized the noun "fighter." She had one gear, "all out" and knew only one direction, "straight ahead." It is not an overstatement to call her two bouts with Anne Sophie Mathis fights that served to ignite interest in the sport of female boxing in Europe.

Lamare fought 177 rounds over her career and was in the ring with every top boxer in the sport, ranging from Mathis to Holm to Braekus.

The World Boxing Federation (WBF) congratulates our former world champion on this deserved honor!
