JACKSONVILLE BEACH -  A Jacksonville Beach female boxer has her eyes set on the Summer Olympic Games next year in London, England.  "I should be competing for the United States. That's the plan. USA team number one!" says 32 year old Ishika "Isis" Lay. She wants to be one of three U-S women to head to London next year where, for the first time, women's boxing will be an Olympic event. 

Lay is getting ready for an October tournament in Ohio.  If she wins in her 132 pound weight class, then she'll go to the Olympic Box-offs in February. A win there will send her to the Games.

"People who know me know I'm an intelligent woman and wonder why boxing of all sports," says Lay.  She says amateur boxing is more like an art.  "You don't have three months to prepare for a fight like in the pros.  It's alot more challenging."
