Father's Day is for daughters, too -- just ask current WBO women's bantamweight champion Kaliesha West. Also known as "Wild Wild," West credits one main man in her rise in the female boxing ranks -- father Juan West, who serves as her trainer and manager.
So on this special day, West shares with us the video above, a feature produced by Trans World Sport in the U.K., and these photos from the talented young boxer's Facebook page.
