About Holly Lawson

Welterweight Holly “Lil Bear” Lawson was born in British Columbia, Canada. Her early years were spent on a reservation with children from the Coast Salish Tribe. Given the middle name Miesha from her mother, her famous fighting name was established, since Miesha means “Little Bear.” After graduating high school, she decided to travel and lived in Mexico, England and Saint Lucia.

In 2005, after attending a boxing class for personal exercise, Holly fell in love with the sport. She had her first amateur fight for the California State Golden Gloves in 2010 and won by unanimous decision. Since that first win, Holly “Lil Bear” Lawson has established a large local fan base and has some notable fans such as World Champion Bernard Hopkins, and as well as gym mates Manny Pacqiauo, Amir Khan, Peter Quillin, Jorge Linares, and Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini. One of Holly’s inspirations is boxing champ Lucia Rijker, who also fought out of the same world famous Wildcard Boxing Club that Holly has trained at since 2007.
