Even though the fighter lives on Long Island (one of the worst hit coronavirus hotspots), she hasn’t had a problem with her training at all. Although sh received death threats for posting her training photos online.
She revealed, “What has gone on around here is really crazy and hard to believe. But for me, I’m in my own bubble. I do my workouts and I’m around people who are generally healthy. When I’d go to Manhattan, besides the fact that the stores and businesses were closed, it didn’t seem any different to me other than maybe just a lot less traffic.”
She added, “For me, it was just go train, go home and relax, go train, go home and relax. So I was able to do what I needed to do. In my daily life, I didn’t notice a lot different, to be honest.”
She also spoke about the tribulations her family faced, saying, “My family’s bar/restaurant has been severely affected by this. Seeing what they’re going through puts things in perspective. I’m grateful that I have the opportunity to work and get paid. There are a lot of people out there who don’t have that opportunity and I think most of us know someone directly who has felt that.”
