Specializing in boxing reporting, Michelle Joy Phelps has adopted a high energy, hard work attitude approach to each challenge with her flair for innovation and her hunger for success for her organization, Behind the Gloves. Ever since watching boxing since the age of 8 with her father and uncles who were avid boxing fans, her passion for the sport was evident. As well as modeling for Maxim and various other magazines Internationally, she eventually got her foot into the sport with her creative and pre-eminent boxing blogging for totalsportsblog.com which triggered other outlets to approach Miss Phelps to cover live events.
From her first one-on-one interview with Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin she has leapt bounds. The birth of Michelle Joy Phelps’ behindthegloves.com began in March 2013. Entering a predominantly male sport, Miss Phelps persevered and developed a hugely successful boxing website where pink is the dominant color. Through trust, building rapport with leading industry figures and brokering relationships thus fostering powerful business connections, while being a confident reporter with vast amounts of boxing knowledge, Michelle has expanded Behind the Gloves to the powerhouse boxing news website and channel it is currently.
With Michelle’s ethos to provide the boxing fight fan with the latest news and interviews, her hard work and dedication saw her cultivate within the boxing landscape and months after the launch of the Behind the Gloves channel, she was traveling all over the world interviewing the elite of boxing including Floyd Mayweather, Jr., Manny Pacquiao, Oscar de la Hoya, Miguel Cotto, Andre Ward, Amir Khan, Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder, Roy Jones, Jr., Anthony Joshua, Canelo Alvarez and many more.
