Amanda Galle is Canada’s top Professional Bantamweight boxer, ranked #1 with an undefeated record of 7-0.  Prior to turning pro, Amanda dominated the amateur circuit, collecting numerous decorative titles: 3x Canadian National Champion, Team Canada Rep 2014, 2018. 4x Ringside World Boxing Champion, & Boxing Ontario’s 2012 Female Athlete of the Year.

Amanda is the embodiment of perseverance in the face of unthinkable obstacles.  She achieved her status as an indominable Champion in 2022, the same year that she suffered the most profound personal loss, the loss of her mother.

Nine years earlier, in October 2013, Amanda’s beloved mother, Nicolina, had been diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer.  Within months of that diagnosis, Nicolina had a mastectomy and 20 lymph nodes removed from her right breast.  After surgery, a serious of debilitating chemotherapy treatments followed.   Nicolina faced them all with courage, and unrelenting hope.  Yet her battle with cancer persisted, making even day-to-day activities such as walking  was a real challenge for her.  Every day, Amanda chanelled her mother’s tenacity into her training, and her unbroken reign of matches inside the ring.  But tragically, in March 2022, Amanda’s mother’s 8 year battle with cancer came to an end.

What kept Amanda going throughout 2022? Her mother!

“My incentive to continue fighting was that my mother was my life, I put her first always, that was part of how I lived!  I needed to continue to have life after her death!”

2022 was Amanda’s most active year in her fighting career, with 4 fights in 13 Months.  Her wins launched her toward becoming the #1 ranked Professional in Canada, and claiming the Canadian super bantamweight title!

“2022 I was truly tested inside and outside the ring, but if I can carry on my mother’s legacy, she was all grit no quit, that is more than enough, so here I am still standing and ready to be more triumphant in 2023. It’s all winning from here!”

Beyond being an incredibly strong individual fighter, Amanda Galle is a proud ambassador of the Fight To End Cancer. She has taken up the collective fight for all those who have suffered from this horrible disease, including her own mother, Nicolina Galle. Amanda has never fallen short in her efforts to raise funds towards cancer research and to advocate for awareness and support for cancer patients.

“When I am asked what the term cancer means to me, I say to you it is responsible for the loss of my loved ones, including my mother.

The term cancer has caused opponents that I have faced to take recognition in defeating me in that ring, but it was not my opponents that beat me, it was the cancer around me.  The support I have extended to my family over and over has consumed so much of me.

The term cancer is the reason I train physically 2- 4 hours every day, to better myself mentally!  I physically fight with my two hands.  Everything my mother had to go through physically, emotionally, and spiritually, that I cannot overcome and fight for her, i put into my fight to end cancer.

So, I do this in honour of her.  I do this to execute the rage I feel.  I do this to be stable enough to endure it all, and most of all I do this in honour of those that it has defeated.”
