'Black Angel' plays rough.
started boxing secretly so her family wouldn't know but now
she is winning championships in Turkey and internationally.
Her only problem is the marriage proposals coming to her from
near and far.
The 26 year-old Şengül's story is quite interesting. She played
on her high school handball team but the coach kept scolding
her for fouling too much. Ultimately, the coach threw her off
the team and told her 'forget about this and try boxing.' That
day changed the young girl's life. So far Şengül has won 3
Turkey championships, 1 international K1 championship,
and provincial and regional first places in the54 kilo division.
Şengül was last year's Turkey Champion at 54 kilos and 'Black
Angel' is now preparing for a tournament in Greece. But her
biggest problem is the marriage proposals, which come before
and after her matches. Şengül said about the her suitors, "they
send gifts and flowers. One time even a ring came."
