Ramla Ali reclaimed the WBA intercontinental title after overcoming “jelly legs” in her points win over Mexican Julissa Alejandra Guzman in Monte Carlo.
The 34-year-old said she got no sleep the night before and started her period on the morning of the fight so was feeling low on energy.
“It was very emotional because I didn’t sleep last night, zero hours basically and then I started my period so I was double down on the energy levels,” Ali said speaking to DAZN.
“I called for this rematch because I really wanted to prove something, that I’m the better boxer, and I feel like did that tonight.”
All three judges scored the fight 96-94 in Ali’s favour after 10 rounds.
