American Boxing Champion
Heather started boxing in 2010 when she was going through a rough patch in her life. Within three weeks of training, Hardy, a 28 year old rookie, had her first fight in front of an average sized audience in Long Island, and won. In 2013, shortly after women’s boxing was declared as a featured sport in the 2012 London Olympics, an independent film director named Natasha Verma tackled the subject of the gender wage gap in boxing through her film "Hardy". She interviewed Hardy on her experiences and talked about how she was changing the face of a generally male dominated sport.
