Emily Klinefelter was recently released from the UI Hospitals and Clinics, and she has returned home as she continues to recover.

The UI alumna suffered a burst blood vessel in her brain Feb. 5 during a boxing match against Christina Ruiz. The 26-year-old was taken to the hospital in an ambulance and underwent surgery later that night to release pressure in her head.

Klinefelter is expected to make a full recovery.

“Emily Klinefelter has been released from the hospital and is now at home recuperating,” Klinefelter’s mother, Cynthia Parsons, wrote in an e-mail. “She is well on her way to a full recovery, and she wishes to thank everyone for the tremendous outpouring of support, care, and concern throughout this difficult situation.”
