Anneliese Riedl was a founding member of the original incarnation of the Liberal Girls International SportClub - otherwise known as LGIS (Old) - a female boxing and wrestling organisation founded in Munich, Germany in 1976. It promoted a ground-breaking vision - that girls who were enthusiastic about female combat, and who wanted to fight semi-professionally in public settings, could do so topless in properly arranged events and tournaments.
The company was formed in 1976 by Fred Strothmann and Erich Klinger together with Angie who was the nominated club captain and one of the core membership of ten or so who were regular performers throughout the lifetime of the club. The initial group of fighters began several months of wrestling and boxing training in 1976, and on January 31st 1977 eight active members of the group entered the ring in the centre of the "Donauhalle" of Ingolstadt (about 60km north of Munich) in front of 700 spectators to take part in the inaugural event which launched the organisation. Anneliese did not feature in this first event, making her first appearance in June 1977.
When she made her LGIS debut aged 27 she was somewhat older than most of the other girls in the group, and at that time she was noticeably slimmer than in her later matches. Her debut ended with a resounding KO loss at the hands of Heidi Ranke, and this was followed by other defeats that year, with comments made that she possessed a "glass jaw". However she was not discouraged, and she seemed to gain power as her weight increased - together with greater ring experience she developed into a formidable opponent, gaining revenge wins over boxers who had previously beaten her and concluding her boxing career in May 1979 in style with a notable second round KO win over Heidi in her home town of Munich.
Like nearly all the group members, she retired completely from the female fighting scene with the demise of the LGIS organisation.
