Clarissa Shields is one of the best female boxing prospects in the world right now and has recently been sparring with UFC fighter Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino as Cyborg prepares for UFC 214.
After working with the Brazilian, Shields feels that Cyborg could make it in the world of boxing as well.
Shields would make these claims during an interview with Cyborg herself on Facebook:
While Shields herself holds a 3-0-0 record as a professional boxer and Cyborg holds a 17-1-0 record as a professional MMA fighter.
The female boxing star even took to Twitter to post a short video of herself sparring with Cyborg:
