Barbara Buttrick was one of the first professional women boxers, starting her career in the late 1940’s Hull and boxing her way to being the World Champion of her weight division in the 50’s. Buttrick, now 87, puts her gloves on once again for this Start Your Impossible advert by Toyota. In it we see her testing out her old moves, as well as talking about her career, what pushed her to be the best of the best and the obstacles she had to overcome in what was seen as a males-only sport when she first started.
