Ramla Ali Wins the First Women's Boxing Match in Saudi Arabia

Ramla Ali, the first female boxer to represent Somalia in the Olympic Games, defeated her Dominican counterpart, Crystal Garcia Nova, in the first women's match in the Kingdom, which was held on the sidelines of the World Boxing Championship in heavyweight "Rage on the Red Sea" in Jeddah on Saturday.

It is worth noting that Ramla, who is currently 31 years old, was a young girl when she fled to the United Kingdom, with her family, to escape the civil war in her country, and managed to achieve several titles in the British Championships.

The good news is not over yet, as a new barrier has been broken in Saudi Arabia, as the kingdom has allowed the women's match to be broadcast publicly for the first time ever on the world stage through Matchroom Boxing.
