She was very talkative late this afternoon when he visited the hospital and is expected to make a complete recovery and leave the hospital in the coming days. She thanks everyone for their well wishes and prayers. Rita has long been a fan favorite in Chicago, known for her take no prisoners style of boxing. Her fight on Friday night against Kita Watkins was fought in the exactly the same manner.
