Ritu Phogat has an inspiring message for her Instagram followers to start the week. The Indian atomweight tells them that ‘to be beautiful means to be yourself’.

The message is accompanied by some beautiful photos of Ritu wearing an unusual combination of traditional Indian clothes and boxing gloves:

We don’t know when Ritu will be fighting next but after competing five times in 2021 she has probably earned a break. There are some big atomweight fights coming up though with Denice Zamboanga fighting Seo Hee Ham for the second time at ONE: ‘X’.

Itsuki Hirata also announced that she would be fighting on the ONE: ‘X’ card and Ritu could be a potential opponent. So it shouldn’t be long before she is back in the cage but in the meantime we are enjoying these photos which capture both sides of the ‘Indian Tigress’.
