Cris Cyborg Says She is Willing to Fight Holly Holm, but No Discussions Have Occurred

Posted on by MMAWeekly.com Staff

Cris Cyborg JustinoFormer world champion boxer Holly Holm’s camp recently said that preliminary talks are underway for a possible pay-per-view bout with Invicta FC featherweight MMA champion Cris “Cyborg” Justino, but it seems someone forgot to mention that to Cyborg, who has denied any knowledge of such a fight.

“I like Holly Holm. She is a great boxer, but neither myself nor my manager has spoken to anyone about a fight with Holly Holm,” Cyborg posted on her Facebook page on Monday.

MMAFighting.com recently reported that one of Holm’s coaches, Mike Winkeljohn, said that there have been preliminary talks for a possible Holm vs. Cyborg pay-per-view fight if Holm’s recent negotiations with the UFC failed to materialize into a contract.

For her part, Cyborg isn’t saying that she wouldn’t fight Holm. Quite the contrary, she surprisingly said that she would even consider going toe-to-toe with her in a boxing match.

“I will fight anyone, anytime, anywhere,” said Cyborg. “I would love to fight [Holm] – boxing or MMA – but first she has to sign with Invicta or at least have her manager contact my manager before her manager says that we are discussing a pay-per-view.

“Unlike Ronda [Rousey], at least Holly wants to fight me. I respect that! I’m ready!! War!!!”
