In Kinshasa, women are fighting for survival. In the literal sense. In a country where finding a job is a feat and receiving a miracle wage, they go into the ring to earn a living, or try to... Since the mythical M. Ali versus G. Forrman boxing match took place here in 1974, Kinshasa has been the city of boxing, first for men and then for women since the creation of a club in 1995.
