TORONTO -- Steve Molitor is not a just a world-ranked fighter. He's a huge advocate for women.

In his own unique sort of way.

Molitor credited his wife, Tiffany, with helping establish what turned out to be his best training camp ever. The Sarnia boxer prepared for this Saturday's IBF junior featherweight title bout against South African Takalani Ndlovu, by literally having his trainer, Chris Johnson, stay over at his home in Mississauga five, six nights a week. And on many of those nights, various sparring partners and training staff also hung out. It was one big happy family and Molitor heaped praise on his wife for her contributions.

"She cooked our food, did our laundry and left us alone," he said.

Molitor is about as politically correct as a mud slide.

Still, he was sincere in his praise for his wife and the camp.

"We got up every morning at 6 a.m. and went to the gym, and worked out again at night. And then we'd go to my house and watch boxing and play poker. We had that team atmosphere," he said.
