The Lady From Windsor: Female Lightweight Champion Kara Ro Interview
By Robert Brizel, Head Real Combat Media Boxing Correspondent
On Friday evening, February 8, 2019, at a Carlos Llinas promotions boxing card at Motor City Casino’s Sound Board venue in Detroit, Michigan, retired undefeated Women’s International World Lightweight champion Kara Ro sat down for an exclusive interview with Real Combat Media. Kara Ro, ‘The Lady From Windsor’, hails from Windsor, Canada, is married with two children, currently works as a professional boxing and MMA trainer in Detroit, Michigan, and has her own radio show.
Ro and Laila Ali are the only two retired undefeated female world boxing champions.
Roe posted a professional ring record of 17-0 between 2002 and 2011 in a championship boxing career interrupted off and on by injuries, and extended recovery periods.
Robert Brizel: “What are you doing now, Kara?”
Kara Ro: “I train 11-0 Michigan super middleweight Anthony Barnes, a 165 pounder. I also coach MMA, the UFC’s top fighters for Horizon Company. I train the fighters at Michigan top team, both types of fighters in Detroit.”
Robert Brizel: “Your pro boxing career ended in 2011. Why did you stop?”
Kara Ro: “I had a back injury which couldn’t be fixed. I couldn’t walk for a year and a half. Finally, a doctor did fix my back, with spinal compression.”
Robert Brizel: “And then?”
Kara Ro: “I had two world title fights which were cancelled (due to my ongoing injury issues). So, I retired, and had my two children. It was about time (to move onto the family stage of my life with my husband). My husband would support me if I want to make a comeback at any point, but I have opted not to. I (still) think about making a comeback every single day! I have 15 fighters I am now coaching, 12 of them professional. I also have my own radio show, The TKO Show, which is for talk radio and opinion (not boxing).”
