Highest-ranked female middleweight in the U.S. credits God for her physical and emotional strength
Our take: Tori "Sho Nuff" Nelson is currently the highest ranked female middleweight boxer in the United States. She is also a single mom who works three jobs in order to support her family and still finds time to make it to church and Bible study. Nelson credits her ability to juggle difficulties and her succeed in the boxing world to God, who she strongly feels led her to walk this path so she can help inspire and empower other women.
Tori "Sho Nuff" Nelson, like many single mothers, is a strong-willed woman who works multiple jobs in order to support her family. Unlike most mothers, however, she is a professional boxing champion who relies on God to give her strength both inside and outside the ring.
Although the 35-year-old Nelson holds two world titles and is the highest-ranked female middleweight in the United States, she has struggled to gain sponsors and has been forced to work other jobs as a result. In between training sessions, which take up nearly four hours of her day on average, she works as a school bus driver, school cafeteria manager and an IHOP waitress.
"I do get tired, and I do get stressed out, but I just pray, and I keep going," Nelson told The Christian Post on Thursday.
