Cris Cyborg slighted Claressa Shields’ boxing resume after adding another knockout win to her name in boxing.

Cyborg KO’s another victim

Cyborg headlined a boxing match with Aria Wild at Crypto Fight Night at The O2 in London on Saturday. It was a lopsided bout in favor of the MMA legend who knocked Wild out in the second round.

Early in the fight, the Brazilian already outmatched Wild and just picked up where she left off in Round 2. Cyborg cornered Wild against the ropes before landing a devastating right hand that quickly floored her opponent.

Wild failed to get back on her feet and Cyborg was then declared the winner via knockout.

Cyborg took a shot at Claressa

Shortly after securing the knockout victory, Cyborg took to social media to boast about her latest accomplishment. At the same time, the Bellator champ took a shot at Shields.

“4-0 and I’ve already got more KO’s than Claressa Shields who’s had about 100 boxing fights,” Cyborg wrote on X.

Shields has not been a fan of Cyborg’s boxing skills and apparently, the feeling is mutual. The pair has been going back and forth for quite some time now but have yet to make the fight official.

As it stands, Cyborg has now gone unbeaten in her boxing career. Prior to this, she stopped Kelsey Wickstrum in 81 seconds. On the other hand, Shields is set to compete for the WBA Interim World Light Heavyweight, WBC World Heavyweight and the vacant WBO World Light Heavyweight titles against Vanessa Lepage-Joanisse on July 27.
