Signed to Unified Heavyweight World Champion Anthony Joshua's 258 management label, Ali is trained by her husband Richard Moore at the BoxClever Gym in Ladbroke Grove, London.
Ali’s family fled war-torn Somalia as refugees after her brother had already been killed. Settling in London, she initially kept her boxing training a secret for fear her family would disapprove of the pastime for a Muslim girl.
As an amateur boxer Ali became the first Muslim boxer to win an English Title before deciding to represent Somalia in 2017. She Joins a thriving Matchroom stable that boasts a number of women's World Champions and hopes to create more history by becoming Somalia's first ever World Champion.
