Final Part: interview with Nicola Mimnagh
Michelle Joy Phelps: hey guys, this is another addition of my I guess you could say talk show on the Real View.
Today I have the stunning former Miss Scotland Nicola Mimnagh sitting with me for a cup of coffee after a hard work out together.
Nicola: (laughs) thanks for having me on the show.
Michelle: it is certainly my pleasure and the pleasure of our viewers to see such a beauty like yourself in the BBU.
Nicola: if you are trying to butter me up for the personal questions, it's working.
Michelle: OK time to get somewhat serious, what made you leap into the world of celeb boxing after being a successful beauty pageant winner?
Nicola: I absolutely love the sport, growing up as a kid, I would watch it with my parents and admire the Joe Calzaghe's of the world.
Now we have Ricky Burns as a national hero, so I have boxed myself for training for years.
A jump into the ring to actually fight for real was the next logical step to take and boy did I love my debut against Su-Elise Nash.
Michelle: yes as you have said, you debuted against Su and won your debut fight, were you happy with the way the fight went?
Nicola: yes and no, I started slowly as I admit nerves bit me and I let Su take the early lead in the fight.
But I never felt in danger at any point and I powered through her when I needed to for the knock out.
I can admit though that I was straight in the house that night and rewatching that bout to learn from my mistakes and I hope my second bout is better.
Michelle: that's dedication!
Nicola: you have to remember I am a perfectionist, being in beauty pageants, you need to know that every detail is covered or the judges notice the smallest blemish and the next thing you know, you're sobbing in the dressing room.
It's a lot harder life then people give us credit for and it has helped make me who I am today.
Michelle: so on that subject, would you fight this years miss Scotland Lucy Kerr?
Nicola: for the record, Lucy is a fitting winner, it's been a few years since a red head won and she definitely deserved to win.
Would I fight her, well we are both proud women from when I met her so the answer would be with or without gloves?
Seriously though, she is a good kid and a little small to actually fight in a sanctioned bout.
But I would be happy to spar with her if she did decide to join us beauty pageant girls in the BBU.
I am already picturing her and Laury Thileman fighting on the French Riviera, Lucy standing tall over her rival but maybe I'm getting a head of myself. (Laughs)
Michelle:final question, you and Karen Gillan, going to happen or is it too much a stretch?
Nicola: I don't know what you mean by that but I wish Karen the best of luck in the welterweight title tournament.
The dream scenario for me is that me and her fight for that title in Scotland with the world watching us.
But I came into boxing to be the best, so while I think me and her would get along under different circumstances.
If we ever get put together nose to nose, I will come out swinging and looking to put my foot on her body as I stand with my arms raised in front of our country.
Michelle: thank you for being such a wonderful guest, I wish you the best of luck in your future and we will be watching for your fights keenly.
