Female Boxer Barbara Butterick

Original caption: A shorthand typist by day, Barbara Buttrick is a short jab artist by night when she takes her lessons. Blonde 19 year old Barbara came to London from Hull, full of the ambition to be a boxer. She went to Wally May, famed trainer of professionals, and told him her problem. He was skeptical, but he tried her out with the mitts. Now he's enthusiastic about the "lady leather-pusher." She intends to start a boxing club for women and is drawing up a special set of rules. You see her in action here.
