Cris Cyborg has her next boxing match on the undercard of one of boxing’s best.
Cyborg will reportedly appear on the undercard of Terence Crawford vs David Avanesyan on December 10 in Omaha, Nebraska. She will face former Bellator fighter Gabrielle Holloway in a four-round lightweight bout.
“This is a great opportunity for me to make a splash in the boxing world,
especially on a card with Terence Crawford, the best boxer in the world,” Cyborg said.
“Boxing has always been a big part of my training and I feel I can compete at the highest level. I’m expecting Holloway to be in great shape, and I know she’s coming to win. That said, I’m taking this fight very seriously. I feel confident, and I can’t wait to showcase my boxing skills to the world.”
Cyborg, the Bellator featherweight champion who is exploring MMA free agency, debuted in boxing in September where she beat Simone Silva in Brazil.
Holloway is 0-2 in her pro boxing career. Her MMA record is 6-6 with a 1-3 record in Bellator.
