Cris Cyborg spars with championship boxer Raquel Miller.
Cris ‘Cyborg’ Justino is undoubtedly one of the most accomplished female MMA fighters in the history of the sport. Justino is a former featherweight champion in Invicta FC, Strikeforce and the UFC, as well as the current Bellator Women’s Featherweight titleholder. The four-time world champion defeated Julia Budd at Bealltor 238 in January of 2020, winning the Bellator featherweight gold.
After landing her fourth MMA title, Justino told Fight Library back in February of this year, that her pursuit of gold does not end at the sport of Mixed Martial Arts. Mentioning “I’ve won all the belts in MMA, maybe I need to add another one from boxing to my resume.”
Justino has actually sparred with a few of female boxing’s greatest names, consisting of the two-time Olympic Gold Medalist and middleweight champ Clarissa Shields.
The other day, Justino launched a video on her YouTube channel, flaunting her boxing abilities. As she sparred with the present WBA Interim Super Welterweight Champ, Raquel Miller.
In the video, Justino shows some slick head motion and footwork, along with some explosive mixes and destructive uppercuts. It is really rather impressive to see the 35- year-old, profession kickboxer/MMA fighter, hold her own in the ring vs. among the most harmful female fighters at 150 pounds. If effective in boxing venture,
Justino would acquire “legend status”.
There is no concern that if Justino satisfied her goal, entered the world of boxing and won as a boxing champ, she might possibly turn into one of the most effective combat sports professional athletes in the world– female or male.
While a battle with Miller or Shields is extremely not likely, keep your eyes on Cris Cyborg’s social media, as she shows her outstanding boxing abilities. Whether a battle winds up emerging or not, it is indisputable that Cris Justino would be a severe hazard in women’s championship boxing. We simply need to see and wait.
