Alejandra Ayala continues in her recovery after going through a dramatic episode following her fight in Scotland against Hannah Rankin last May 13, in which she lost by knockout in 10 rounds.
The following days were of uncertainty, as she was in a coma and needed 10 days to wake up, but finally she has been able to recover from such a complicated moment.
The Mexican gave her first interview after the incident and it was for the YouTube channel of ” You Can’ t Play Boxing” “No Puedes Jugar Boxeo”, in which she talked about how she is currently feeling and how she has been improving as the days go by.
“I don’t remember so much when I woke up, but I remember I was happy to see my parents and say ‘I have another life ahead of me’, when I woke up I couldn’t walk, I couldn’t talk, I couldn’t do a thousand things that I do now and the doctors had told me I couldn’t do in a year and a half, they are surprised,” Ayala assured in the interview.
The Mexico City native said she felt she could beat Rankin because her preparation was excellent. Although the doctors said she would need more than a year to do certain tasks after her recovery, she is doing them just a few months later, which has left them pleasantly surprised.
“This was my best fight of the 20 I’ve had as a professional, in fact, the doctors are surprised and told me that it had a lot to do with the excellent preparation I had in the three months prior to the fight,” she continued.
Now officially retired as a fighter, she assured that she will dedicate herself to training and developing talent in Tijuana, a noble task for the support of Mexican talent and the future of the sport in her country.
