"Life is a fight," says Mohamed Ma'alem, the founder of the Brussels Boxing Academy (BBA) in Molenbeek. "For everyone, for anyone." But in 14-year-old Salma Ben Abdesselam, he thinks he has a fighter who might just be up to the challenge. Salma trains every day at the BBA, a club with 600 members located in an old school gym, where her father, Hamid Ben Abdesselam, is one of her coaches.
