Tori "Sho-Nuff" Nelson

13-Time World Boxing Hall of Fame Multi-Weight Champion & devout mother of two. See more here: http://torishonuffnelson.com/

Tori Nelson, gives hope to single mothers. Her hard work, dedication and motto --"suck it up" -- seem to help her persevere in balancing her dream career in boxing as well as taking care of her two teenage children. Tori Nelson first started boxing at the age of 29, but in her pursuit for the championship Nelson's journey is not so easy. Nelson is a single mother working three jobs; she works as a school bus driver, cafeteria worker and an IHOP waitress, and maintains all three while taking care of her children. "It's hard," says Nelson, "Especially doing it by myself because I don't get enough time to raise my own kids, but I just suck it up... because I know I got two mouths I got to feed." Nelson squeezes her training time in between jobs. Craig Fladager, Nelson's professional coach and manager, says, "God does extraordinary things through ordinary people, and this is a prime example of that." July 29, 2011, in the fifth fight of her career, Nelson won the World Boxing Council (WBC) Women's Middle Weight title. On February 11, 2012 she went on to unanimously win the coveted WIBA Middleweight title belt. Tori β€œSho-Nuff” Nelson dropped to the Welterweight class to win the WIBA belt in September 2013. She feels that she will not be able to reach her full potential while balancing everything in her life. She says, "Until that time comes I just have to keep going, suck it up and keep going." Tori, alone, must work three minimum paying jobs (waitress, bus driver, cafeteria worker) to support her two children and to fulfill her dream to remain the #1 Women's Middleweight boxing champ in the world.

9ROUND Ashburn
Come πŸ‘€ me

[01/30/19]   9ROUND Ashburn Baby!😍πŸ’ͺ

[01/30/19]   Good morning blessed ones! Be very careful when you go out today. Very cold and slippery here for my local friends. Have a great blessed day and stay home and enjoy your best life if you don't have to come out.

[01/29/19]   Good morning blessed ones! I just need you all to know something. I see a lot of you are sharing my article and I am so Thankful for it. But for you to ask how I do it...smh shame on you. Don't you know with God anything is possible. I wouldn't have any of those accomplishments if Jesus didn't want me to. I am certainly Blessed and definitely know it. And you are also. I don't have anything that you can't have if you Pray Believe and then Receive it. So don't ask me how I did it. I DIDN'T!! Jesus heard my Prayer and I Believed that he heard it and as you see I Received my gifts from him. So with that said. Go today and pray for whatever anything nothing is to big or too small to ask for then believe it and watch you Receive it.(if that's what God has for you) sometimes he block you from what you think is good for you but really not. But anyway know that I am Thankful for all of my accomplishments and I'm more than happy to share them with you all and pray you do the same. Be Blessed and have a great blessed day

[01/28/19]   Good morning blessed ones!
Come to 9ROUND Ashburn and punch these bags like Monday had a face!😜πŸ€ͺ
