Originally, it was intended as an action movie, with Alicia Vergel, then the action-movie queen. When Susan Roces replaced her, it was turned into a comedy-action-drama. Dolphy and Panchito were added for the comedy. The producer changed the title to Boksingera daw.. since they were not sure that the then 14-year-old Susan could be an effective boxer on screen.

The producer, after watching the movie, stopped the release of the movie, fearing that it might not click with the audience. They instead released another Susan Roces movie, titled Miss Tilapia (1956) before this one. When this movie was later released, it flopped.
