Rave Reviews


"Absorbing and brilliant! Over 22 years ago I shared the ring with Alicia Doyle...twice. Fighting Chance transported me back to relive those experiences from HER perspective. It was amazing! I highly recommend this book!" 

– "Amazing" Layla McCarter, 8 time, 5 division Boxing World Champion & California Boxing Hall of Fame Inductee

"No punches pulled by the hard hitting Ms Doyle in her true life  novelistic rendering of what it's like to punch her way to fame! A knockout!!" 

- Ivor Davis, Investigative Journalist & Best-Selling Author of "Manson Exposed: A Reporter's 50-Year Journey into Madness and Murder"


“Alicia Doyle is a shining example of an individual who continues to fight to save herself from the dark side of life by mentoring troubled young children at KID GLOVES. She is their guiding light, a light that doesn’t often shine for them. FIGHTING CHANCE is exactly that, a chance to survive in the ring and in life. A must read…”

– Rod Holcomb, Producer/Director

“Alicia instilled what Kid Gloves Boxing teaches – the A.B.C Backwards: Conceive, Believe, Achieve. Building CONFIDENCE in all she does, Round by Round. A true role model for all.”

– Robert Ortiz Sr., owner of Kid Gloves Boxing
