Many fans were concerned about a large swelling on the former champions forehead during and after the fight. The Polish striker has now given an update on her medical condition, which is improving but will require surgery.

“Honestly, I couldn’t see for two days because you know I’ve got bruise on my forehead very much and the gravitation took it to my eyes.

“Now my whole face is bruised but there is no more ‘Joanna UFO’. There is no swelling on my forehead. It’s more on my face and my neck – it’s going down its much better you know. I have a very bad ear with lots of blood in it. I have scheduled surgery in Poland with the best plastic surgeon. So, on Monday I will have a small, small medical procedure on my ear and then i’ll be ready to rock and roll.”
