Diva Cage Match 2018 (5).png
Diva Cage Match was an epic battle of the vocal cords that reshapes how the masses can experience opera. It’s shifting the operative narrative from stuffy and exclusive to fun, flamboyant, and feisty.

It’s really hard for me to explain why you should see world class opera singers strutting around a boxing ring competing to see who can hit the most glass shattering high note. But trust me – this one’s worth it.
— R. T. Rybak, Former Mayor of Minneapolis
Diva Cage Match was a sensational event! Stage, lights, celebrities, hair and makeup, costume, and above all, an enthusiastic audience...the elements of an opera performance, brought to a BOXING RING. This will go down in the books as THE COOLEST competition I’ve competed in AND won! A unique and entertaining experience NOT to be missed!

Special Thank You to Uppercut Boxing Gym

Unfortunately, women were rarely welcome in traditional gyms or in the ring. So in 1996 Lisa Bauch, calling on her background as a fitness instructor and small business manager, founded Uppercut Boxing Gym.

From its humble beginnings in a Lake Street storefront that consisted of 4,000 square feet, Uppercut has grown into the Midwest’s largest boxing gym consisting of 13,000 square feet and the only boxing gym in the United States solely owned and operated by a woman.
