5'3" Trisha "TNT" Hill was born on March 18, 1975 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. She fights between 125 and 130 lbs, out of Kennesaw, Georgia. She is managed and trained by Kelly Leo.

Trisha is one of the most active fighters in professional women's contact sports. She is one of the few who have competed successfully at the world class level both as a pro boxer and as a pro kickboxer, under Full Contact, International Rules and Muay Thai rules. Trisha also has earned a 1st Degree Black Belt Sho Dan.

"I like them all, each style brings a different type of fighter. and I think that is good for the sport", she says.

Trisha HillTrisha began kickboxing mainly to get in shape. Her life changed when Marshell Davis, who is now her husband, asked her to fight an exhibition bout. She was hooked by the experience and says she has been ''in love with it ever since.'' Her first competitive bout was in 1999.

On August 28, 1999 at Mountains Arena in Gainesville, Georgia, in "Battle Brigade 8" Trisha pounded Erin Cantrell for a three-round unanimous decision. A ringside report said "Hill is tremendously entertaining to watch, never tiring and continuing to dominate her opponent even after suffering what her coach thought was a broken toe midway through the second round".

On October 17th, 1999 in Denver, Colorado, USA in a scheduled three- round IKF International Rules non-title bout, Trisha TKO'd Tracy Kuschel of Omaha, Nebraska at 1:25 of the second round. She overwhelmed Kuschel with punches and the fight was stopped by referee Tom Yoshida after a flurry of her punches went unanswered. 

On March 10, 2000 at Memorial Auditorium in Dalton, Georgia, Trisha again knocked out Tracy Kuschel in the second round in a bout for the IKF US Amateur Bantamweight International Rules title. Kuschel started out throwing hard combinations, powerful kicks, and spinning backfists but Hill replied with leg kicks, strong punches, and kicks to the inner thighs. Hill caught Kuschel with a series of kicks in the second round, attacking the inner thighs and dropping Kuschel once. Halfway through the second round, Hill threw a spinning side kick to the ribs that dropped Kuschel. The fight was stopped as it was clear that Tracy was unable to continue.

On May 27, 2000 in the East District/Georgia Games Womens-Girls-Men's Boxing Tournament at Goshen Elementary School in Augusta, Georgia, Trisha defeated Heather Stevens of Virginia by a 5-0 score in the main event.

On July 31, 2000 in Merraitt, Georgia, Trisha fought IKF #1 ranked featherweight Jackie Chavez of Los Lunas, New Mexico, USA for the vacant IKF US Amateur International Rules Featherweight Title. After a tough fight in which both showed excellent kicking skills, Trisha won a close unanimous decision.

On August 11, 2000 in the Open Division 132-lb Semi-Final of the 2000 US National/international Golden Gloves boxing competition in Augusta, Georgia, Melissa Fiorentino of Cranston, Rhode Island defeated Trisha by a 5-0 score. Trisha had previously defeated Jennie Puga of San Antonio, Texas by RSC-1 in a preliminary bout.  Fiorentino and Hill would meet again as pro boxers (see below).

On September 3, 2000 at Harvey's Casino Hotel in Council Bluffs, Iowa, at the IKF/Ringside USA National Amateur Tournament, Trisha (127 lbs) won the 132-lb Full Contact Rules Division with a spectacular spinning crescent kick KO at 1:09 of the third round over Katie Ehrhardt (5'9", 128 lbs) of Lake Zurich, Illinois. This fight was voted "The Women's Bout of the Tournament". Ehrhardt fell to 7-2 (1 KO).

Trisha celebrates win over RiveraOn December 2, 2000 at the Price Fitness Center, Monterey, California, Trisha defeated 1999 IKF National Champion Angela Rivera of Las Vegas, Nevada for the IKF U.S. Featherweight Muay Thai Title by split decision. The scorecards were 49-46 for Rivera, 49-47 and 50-45 for Hill. This was Hill's first Muay Thai bout and was a battle for the full five rounds. Rivera scored frequently with her front kick to Hill's face. Some knocked Hill back, while Trisha shook others off and moved forward using her boxing skills to attack on the inside. Rivera started to use her front kick more in the second but Hill continued to counter with powerful punches. Both scored equally with leg kicks but the keys throughout this exciting bout were Hill's boxing skills and punching and Rivera's repeated front kicks to Hill's face.

The IKF title belt was presented to Trisha by five-time World Kickboxing Champion and movie star Kathy Long, who Trisha says is the female fighter who she most admires ... "(Kathy) was never afraid to fight anybody, she made the way for women's kickboxing. She proved that women can fight."

On December 15, 2000 in the Open finals of the 2000 Police Athletic League amateur boxing championships in New Orleans, Louisiana, Trisha won the 125-lb division over Travante Williams of New Orleans on a disqualification.

On February 24, 2001 at Fort Gordon's Gym in Augusta, Georgia, Trisha won a majority decision over PKC National Champion Summer Miller of Augusta, in the IKF Featherweight division. From the start, both fighters exchanged bows at a furious pace. While Trisha was able to execute her game plan, Miller landed a couple of good hurting shots, including a strong round kick to Trisha's head.

On May 5, 2001 at Mirage Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, Angela Rivera exacted some revenge for her December 2000 loss to Trisha by winning a five-round majority decision over her for the vacant ISKA US Lightweight Muay Thai amateur title. Rivera fought more aggressively and dropped Hill in the final round. Nevertheless, it was still close on the scorecards ... one judge had it even at 48.5 to 48.5 while the others had it 48.5 to 46.5 and 49 to 46.5 for Rivera.

On June 30, 2001 at Westwood Recreation Center in Dayton, Ohio, Trisha won a 132-lb amateur boxing bout over Terri Blair of Kentucky.

Trisha Hill vs. Angela LoboscoTrisha fought in the 125-lb Open Division at the US National Golden Gloves in Augusta, Georgia from  August 8 to 11, 2001. She defeated Sylvia Guanajuato of Eloy, Arizona and Angela LoBosco of West Babylon, NY by 5-0 scores in the preliminaries, then Christy Slone of Valdosta, Georgia 4-1 in the semifinal. Trisha then lost to Nora Reyes of Chicago's Windy City Boxing Club by a 3-2 decision in the final.

On September 19-22, 2001 in the 125-lb division at the USA Boxing National Championships at the Marine Corps Base at Camp LeJeune, North Carolina Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, Trisha defeated Alison Fasano of Camp Lejeune, 27-6 in her preliminary bout, and then lost to Anju Reejhsinghani of Seattle, Washington 14-8 in the semifinal. (The division winner was Jennifer Han of El Paso, Texas.)

Trisha's final amateur boxing record was an impressive 32-4-0 (9 KOs) while her amateur kickboxing record was 6-1 (3 KO).

On May 17, 2002 at Argosy Atrium in Baton Rouge, Louisiana Trisha won her pro boxing debut with a unanimous (40-36) four- round decision over Sue Bennett of Slidell, Louisiana who fell to 1-2-0 (0 KO). Hill scored constantly with left and right hooks and did a lot of headhunting but Bennett stood tough until the end (although she hasn't fought as a pro boxer since this fight).

On June 28, 2002 at the Coca-Cola Roxy in Atlanta, Georgia, Trisha (130 lbs) won by a first-round TKO of Lakeisha Waters (131 lbs). Hill had controlled the action with a steady stream of rights to the head of Waters in an exhibition bout that had been scheduled for four rounds. (This bout was fought in headgear).

On October 4, 2002 at Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island Melissa Fiorentino (127 lbs) of Cranston, Rhode Island advanced to 5-0-0 (4 KO) with a unanimous (40-36) four-round decision over Trisha (125 lbs). Fiorentino was too aggressive for Trisha, constantly moving forward to take away her height and reach advantage. Fiorentino was able to work Hill's head and body with Hill against the ropes and her constant pressure seemed more than Hill knew how to handle. Hill did land one hard right to Fiorentino's head in the third but "Missy" shook the punch off and stuck with her fight plan.

On November 21, 2002 at Sheraton Argosy Atrium in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Trisha won a third-round TKO over Isabel Manyseng of San Antonio, Texas in a scheduled four-rounder that Hill dominated. Manyseng fell to 1-3-0 (0 KO).

On December 14, 2002 at National Guard Armory in Dorchester, Massachusetts, former 2000 and 1997 Canadian national amateur 54-kg champion Danielle Bouchard (124 lbs) of Laval, Quebec, won a four-round split (40-36,40-37,36-40) decision over Trisha (123½ lbs). Bouchard moved to 2-0 as a professional with this win.

Trisha attacks Liz DrewOn February 21, 2003 at Coca-Cola Roxy Theater in Atlanta, Georgia, Trisha (132 lbs) won a six-round unanimous (60-53,60-54,60-54) decision over Liz Drew (130 lbs) of Jefferson City, Missouri, who fell to 3-2-0 (1 KO). Hill dominated the bout by finding a home for hard rights to Drew's face, and Drew took a standing eight count in the final round. Hill's right that raised a big bruise above Drew's left eye but Drew hung tough throughout the fight. The match was the first six-rounder for both fighters.

On March 8, 2003 at Lincoln Theater in Washington, DC, Trisha (126 lbs) stunned local fighter Lisa Foster (130 lbs) with a TKO at 1:55 in the second round. Foster controlled the first round with her jab but Hill stunned Foster with a hard punch, then drove her into the ropes and administered a barrage of unanswered shots that had Foster dazed and wobbly when the fight was stopped. Hill advanced to 5-2-0 (3 KO). Foster, who won the IFBA Junior Featherweight belt in 2002 and sometimes fought as a bantamweight, fell to 5-5-1 (2 KO).

Trisha staggers Holly HolmOn April 5, 2003 at Cowboy's Bar and Grill in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, Trisha knocked out previously undefeated Holly Holm of Albuquerque in the fourth round of a scheduled five-round 139-lb Muay Thai bout. As reported by Chris Cozzone of New Mexico Boxing, "Keeping the shorter Hill at bay, Holly managed to take the first two rounds with her kicks. Hill won the exchanges at close quarters but Holm scored the damaging blows with her feet. The tide changed in the second part of Round Three when Hill landed a bomb of a right hook that had Holm staggering. After tying up and then using kicks to fight back, Holm showed a big heart trying to win back the round. Hill was relentless in closing the distance and suckering Holm into brawling. Early into the fourth, she landed a picture perfect right hand that flattened Holm to the canvas. While Holly continued to throw a half-hearted left right while horizontal, the ref jumped in and immediately stopped the contest after seeing Holm's eyes roll dangerously back."

On April 26, 2003 at The Vanderbilt, Long Island, New York, Trisha won a five-round decision over undefeated Kattlin "Kat" Diaz of New York in a 130-lb WKA USA Professional Eastern Regional Muay Thai title bout. (Diaz was a former NY Golden Gloves amateur boxing competitor). Trisha showed her experience by mixing up her techniques and scoring an early knockdown using good boxing skills as well as low and high kicks and some spinning kicks. Trisha was cut in round three but she stayed calm and appeared to get stronger with every round while Diaz showed tremendous heart and good skills. 

On May 10, 2003 at DC Armory in Washington, DC, USA, Trisha (125 lbs) won a four-round unanimous (40-33,40-34,39-36) decision over LaKeysha Williams (123 lbs) of Philadelphia. After an evenly fought opening round Trisha seized the initiative in the second round when she landed a solid right that staggered Williams. Things got wild in the third as Williams body-slammed Trisha to the canvas to break a clinch, drawing a rare double point deduction that added to the already one-sided score with two judges awarding Trisha a shutout. Hill told reporters “I had to be calm, pick my shots and not let her suck me into her game. I'm a boxer, a professional fighter, I’ve had a lot of fights so I just had to fight my way.” Hill wasn't fazed by Williams's rough tactics, noting that she (Hill) is a world Muay Thai champion and adding, "she’s lucky she didn’t get kneed in the face.” Williams complimented Hill, saying "She was very strong. My hat goes off to her. She’s a good fighter." Williams slipped to 6-5-1 (1 KO).

On July 11, 2003 at Resorts Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, Isra Girgrah of Hyattsville, Maryland barely held off Trisha for a narrow eight-round unanimous (77-75,76-75,76-75) decision in a non-title bout. Trisha knocked Girgrah down in the second round but Girgrah came on strong to control the later rounds. Hill thought she had done enough to win the fight, as did some of the crowd, who booed the decision. Girgrah, who holds four world titles, progressed to 25-3-2 (11 KO) after winning thirteen in a row (though not without some controversy). 

On August 29, 2003 at Riders Ranch, County Expo Center, Waukesha, Wisconsin, Trisha (130 lbs) won a five-round unanimous decision over Keri Crothers (136 lbs) of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada in a Muay Thai bout.

On September 6, 2003 at Greensboro Coliseum, Greensboro, North Carolina, unbeaten Kelli Cofer (127 lbs) of Willard, Ohio fought to a six-round majority draw with Trisha (128 lbs), moving her own record moved to 10-0-3 (4 KO).

Trisha takes a kick from Karen OuseyOn October 19, 2003 at Riviera International Center in Torquay, England, a sellout crowd of 800 saw 32-year-old Karen Ousey of Paignton, England win a five round unanimous decision over Tricia for the vacant WIKBA world lightweight title. In the early going, Hill used her boxing movement and powerful head and body punches while Ousey countered with push kicks and knees. Trisha needed to work at close quarters to use her punches but Ousey found that she could keep her at bay with strong front kicks. Trisha was knocked down by a low sweep kick in the third and began to use her own kicks more in the fourth. Ousey went on the attack in the fifth and kept Trisha off balance with strong kicks and knee strikes. Ousey won despite being hurt by Hill's potent body punching. "Karen obviously didn't let it show at the time, but she admitted afterwards that some of the blows had winded her," said her trainer Howard Hughes. "The first round was even, but Karen was getting on top as the fight went on and she had the better all-round technique with her punching, kicking and kneeing."

Trisha Hill lands to Silke WeickenmeierOn February 14, 2004 at Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle in Stuttgart, Germany, Trisha TKO'd Silke Weickenmeier of Speyer, Germany in the seventh round to win the WIBF Featherweight Title. As described  by Women's Boxing Page correspondent Ewan Whyte, "Trisha Hill broke Silke Weickenmeier’s nose (and with it, her will) with a right that had the full power of her chunky body behind it. The young German was thrown backwards as though she’d been hit in the chest by a shotgun blast. When the bell sounded for the start of the seventh round, Weickenmeier remained on her stool, and the American claimed the world title," Weickenmeier fell to 15-5-3 (1 KO) with the loss.

On May 5, 2004, WIBF president Barbara Buttrick issued the following press release:  "The WIBF has received, from the BDB., an analysis report of urine samples, which showed Trisha Hill as having a substance in her system Norandrosterone - 5 ng/ml.  Upon receiving this report we did an extensive research, also confirmed with the World Anti Doping Association that this is an offence against the anti doping rules.   We therefore have no other option than to strip Trisha Hill of the World Featherweight Title and return it to Silke Weickenmeier.  Although we accept that Trisha Hill did not knowingly take anything illegal, we would warn boxers to thoroughly investigate the probable repercussions of any supplements or medications they may be using."

On May 18, 2004, Trisha responded with a press release stating (in part) "Today I have sent an appeal of the decision stripping me of my title to the W.I.B.F world headquarters in Miami, Florida. At such hearing I intend to have my medical experts give testimony about this substance and how the concentration level could have exceeded the 5ng/ml limit. The one thing of which I am certain is I did not knowingly take any supplements or medications to enhance my performance. My performance is based on training and conditioning and not based on any prohibited substances."

On May 30, 2004 at the Tunnel Events Center in Washington, D.C., Melissa Del Valle of Miami won a 10-round unanimous (98-91,97-92,99-90) decision over Trisha for the vacant Universal Boxing Association Featherweight Title. Del Valle dominated this fight with superior ring generalship and experience, and took the action to Hill in every round. Hill attempted to come forward more as the fight progressed but was often caught by Del Valle on the way in. Del Valle was deducted a point for holding in the fourth round, but still dominated the contest and the scorecards. The bout was the main event of the all-female 'Fight For Pride' card. Del Valle improved to 29-4-1 (11 KO) while Hill fell to 7-4-1 (4 KO).

On September 24th, 2004 at the Phillips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, Trisha (130 lbs) won by a decision over Lisa Pederson of Las Vegas, dropping Pederson's to 2-2-1.

On November 6, 2004 at the Sevens Feathers Hotel and Casino Resort, in Canyonville, Oregon, Kelsey Jeffries (125 lbs) of Gilroy, California won her fifth title defense of her IFBA Featherweight World title belt with a ten-round unanimous (100-90,99-91,99-91) decision over Trish (126 lbs) of Atlanta in the card's main event.  According to Katherine Dunn of Cyberboxingzone.com, "Jeffries attacked from the first bell on, took control with fast, intense combos to head and body, and never allowed Hill to come out of her defensive posture.  The fight ended with a standing ovation, and both Jeffries and Hill were extremely impressive."  Hill took a lot of punishment but kept rallying as she fell to 8-5-1 (4 KOs), while Jeffries improved to 30-8-0 (2 KOs)
 

 

Trisha's approach to professional fighting is clear. "I love to fight", she says, "It is my life so I always give 100 percent."
