Fenix Rises: Alejandra Ayala pictured recovering

Female fighter Alejandra Ayala pictured at a Glasgow hospital continuing her recovery is a fantastic sight this week.

Mexican photographer Fotografa de la Gente shared an image of the stricken boxer as she fights on to get well following time spent in a coma.

It was touch and go regarding whether Ayala would make it after being rushed to the hospital following a defeat to Hannah Rankin in May.

Thankfully, Ayala looks good, and Fotografa shared the news.

“Alejandra Fenix Ayala has come out of her coma and has been slowly recovering in Glasgow. Continue to pray and send her positive vibes,” they said.

The update comes on the back of promoters revealing information during the days of prayer for Ayala.

“We are pleased to confirm that Alejandra has now wakened from her induced coma following successful surgery and is recovering in hospital,” said a statement.

“Everyone is so grateful to the wonderful team at Glasgow’s Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.

“We’d also like to thank Alejandra’s parents for keeping us informed along the way. Also, the British Board of Boxing Control for their support.

“Our best wishes are with this brave, brave warrior as she begins her recovery journey. We will be on hand to support her any way we can.”

Ayala’s career in the ring is over. However, the full extent of her injuries will not be known for some time.

Opponent Rankin was worried about “The Fenix” and made it clear as Ayala woke up from her ordeal.

“Update regarding Alejandra. Thank you to everyone for all the prayers and positive thoughts for Alejandra Ayala and her family.

“Massive thank you to [the hospital] and its world-class medical treatment. Finally, thank you to my team for all the support during this difficult time.”

The Scot plans to continue her career shortly.
