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

  • Ramla Ali's life inside and outside the ring represents her ruthless refusal to quit and passion to fight for what she believes in.

    In her first book, Ramla details ten key fights - a combination of life's constant challenges and real bouts she's endured both in and outside of the ring - that have shaped her remarkable rise to date.

    From her arrival in England as a refugee to being drawn to the energy and spirit of her first boxercise class; from the adrenaline of her first amateur fights to how she often powered on alone, searching for a community of women like her, and her biggest win of all: letting love into her life.

    Each relatable lesson is packed full of honesty and urgency, powering the reader on to become their own champion.
