A Boxer Prepares

Michelle, a media professional, is training for her first fight. Being amongst just a handful of female boxers in Dubai, she more often than not, ends up sparring with male boxers who are in a different weight category altogether. She trains for 4/5 hours in a day while juggling her entrepreneurial venture at the same time. Her days are long, training sessions gruelling. But she keeps at it, session after session, battling tough opponents while keeping gremlins of doubt at bay.
