  • Not Without a Fight: Ten Steps to Becoming Your Own Champion

  • Ten fights from Mogadishu to London: Ramla Ali's lessons on what it takes to become your own champion

    In her first book Not Without a Fight Ramla shares ten key 'fights' - bouts she has endured both inside of the ring and out, from escaping conflict with her family to being bullied at school to winning her first professional fight - all of which have shaped the remarkable trajectory of her life and career.

    Each chapter explores the valuable lessons she gained from them and the key moment which empowered her to fight on. Every fight will encourage the reader to reflect on their own lives, instilling their own ruthless refusal to quit, and guiding them towards ultimately becoming their own champion.

Ramla Ali is a Somali-born, London raised professional boxer, model and activist. She took up the sport of boxing aged 12, training and competing in secret from her family for over ten years. Ramla rose to early prominence as the two-time winner of the national amateur championships in England and winning the Great British Championships. With over sixty-five amateur fights under her felt, Ramla made history by becoming the first boxer to have won an international gold medal whilst representing the country of Somalia. Ramla is a Nike Global Athlete and brand ambassador for Pantene, Coach and Cartier. She is a proud ambassador of UNICEF, Coach's 'Dream It Real' foundation and Choose Love.
