Amateur career
Robinson was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1980. She began boxing at age 14 to survive in Cabrini Green public housing projects. She was involved with numerous street fights growing up, and would often beat up large men in these encounters.
Robinson won her first Golden Gloves competition in 1995. She repeated the performance in 1996, 1997 and 1998, also winning the 1996 Citywide Tournament in Chicago.

Professional career
She made her pro debut on March 23, 2001 in Rosemont, Illinois, winning by a first-round TKO over Aicheria Bell in a scheduled 4 rounder. Bell's pro record fell to 1-4.
On December 14, 2002 in Dorchester, Massachusetts, in a battle of former US amateur champions, Robinson TKO'd Dakota Stone in the sixth round to win the vacant IWBF Middleweight title.

On February 11, 2005 at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, Robinson knocked out Mónica Núñez with only the second punch she threw in the fight, to earn a shockingly easy 36-second win and successfully defend her WIBA Middleweight Title.
Robinson is planning to challenge fighters like Ann Wolfe and Laila Ali over another eight or nine years as a pro boxer. Her goal is to be recognized as an undisputed female champion and then to pursue her professional and personal goals by moving into a law enforcement career while running her own boxing gym.
