Donna Biggers

Donna Biggers is a professional boxer, 5'2" featherweight/junior lightweight Donna Lee "Nature Girl" Biggers was born in Shelby, North Carolina on November 21, 1973 and is trained at Headhunter's Gym in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

She says that she got into boxing by accident. "I just kind of fell into it," she told Shelby Star reporter Randy Capp. "I've always been into staying in shape and working out, and I ran into Billy Mitchem one day. I went to his gym, tried boxing out and really liked it."

Donna in the ringDonna made her pro debut on July 19, 2003 at the National Guard Armory in Crossville, Tennessee, USA. She weighed in at 132 lbs and won a four-round unanimous decision over Helen Shari Penson (135 lbs) of Spartanburg, South Carolina, who was also making her pro debut. Biggers had been training for her first fight since November, 2002.

On September 6, 2004 at the Showplace in Richmond, Virginia, Donna faced Penson again, this time TKO'ing her at 1:17 into the first round.

On September 16, 2007 at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, Jackie Nava (122 lbs) of Tijuana, Mexico won a 10-round unanimous (100-90) decision over Donna (122 lbs) for the WBC interim Super Bantamweight title. According to boxing photographer and WBAN contributor Mary Ann Owen, "Nava 's combinations were explosive and precise landing hard blows to Bigger's face and body. In the middle rounds Bigger's was rocked, at one point I thought the referee Robert Byrd was going to stop the fight, Biggers (left) eye was black and the right side of her head was very swollen. The middle and later rounds Biggers was in a survival mode, with Nava continuing to hammer Biggers, landing body and head shots. Biggers has a lot of heart and hung in the ten rounds, she definitely came to fight." Nava improved to 15-2-2 (9 KOs) while Biggers fell to 19-7-1 (15 KO's).
