She mentioned preventing for her title and her place as an LGBTQ fighter within the male-dominated sport hasn’t come simple.
“Being shunned from sure locations, sure promotions, gyms, coaches not eager to work with me due to who I’m … I feel it exhibits people who find themselves too timid or not assured, that we are able to succeed at any degree in any trade,” Ferea mentioned.
She mentioned her purpose is to turn into world champion in two weight courses and defend these titles. Then finally she hopes to open her personal health club.
