Danyelle Wolf is a three time United States boxing champion and the current face of the US Women's Boxing Team. A blur on the jab, Danyelle overwhelms her opponents with her graceful yet attacking style, landing huge hits and bringing fans to their feet.
Danyelle is a proven winner at all levels. Advocate, artist, athlete, businesswoman, marketing icon, social media phenom - she is all this and more, proof that Danyelle's ability to inspire and excite fans stretches far beyond the ring.
A lifelong athlete, Danyelle's journey towards the Olympics has been marked with multiple championships, disappointment, and second chances.
Growing up, Danyelle competed and was successful at nearly every sport under the sun from basketball to field hockey. Her mix of tenacity, instinct, and unapologetic drive to be the best, set Danyelle apart from many of the competitors she faced through her high school and college sports career.
After graduating college and experiencing success as a professional life coach, Danyelle set out to accomplish one of her childhood dreams - to become a professional athlete.
Unlike many in the pugilist world, Danyelle was not trained in boxing or mixed martial arts. At the time she did not know it, but the world of boxing would lead her towards her dream of one day competing in the Olympics.
Two years after picking up her first boxing glove, Wolf began fighting with team USA and traveling around the world, competing in South Korea, Guadalajara and Venezuela. Wolf has won ring-side world championships, Jiu Jitsu World League championships, national Golden Gloves and had opportunities to be in ESPN’s 2014 Body Issue and go to the ESPY Awards, walking the red carpet with The Rock.
The next step in Danyelle's journey to compete in the Olympics comes in December, when Wolf will face seven other women in the final stage of the U.S. Olympic trials to earn a spot on Team USA.
