The pro boxer released a statement on Instagram on Wednesday, after a man whom she accidentally backed into with her car was sent to the hospital. 

"As was reported, I was involved in a minor parking lot accident yesterday. I am okay, and am praying that the elderly gentlemen [sic] who was walking behind my car as I was backing up is okay," she wrote. "My daughter (Sydney) was in the vehicle, and she is okay too."
