A boxer's wife

Hassana is Husseni’s wife. He proposed to her after winning a major fight, and she accepted.

She travels with him and attends to his wounds after fighting.

“I am his wife. I have no choice in what he does, I must support him,” she says.

Hussaini explains why boxers get into the ring. “There are few opportunities for people without employment,” he says.
