Strong performance last night by Sahila on the first ever SHEfights event! It was a very close 3 round battle against a good opponent. Our girl steadily upped her pace each round, gaining heavy momentum in the final. Unfortunately she was then hit with a blow that off balanced her and was given an 8 count. She was unhurt and got up immediately, but a fighter downed from a strike will almost always be counted, especially in amateur bouts.
These things happen in our sport and are just a lesson for us to improve our defense so that there are no questions. It is a lesson we will definitely take into our training going forward. Overall, we are beyond proud of how much she has grown. She'll be back stronger, smarter and just as determined.
