A boxing ring girl has called out Russian president Vladimir Putin and vowed to be "aggressive" against him.
Putin is undoubtedly enemy number one in the world after facilitating a full-scale invasion of Ukraine and bringing about war and conflict in Eastern Europe.
And Jiselle Arianne, a ring girl for Bally Sports, wants to face the 69-year-old inside the squared circle.
Speaking in an interview ahead of the Bally Sports card in Orlando, Florida over the weekend, Arianne said: "That's a good one. There's so many. That's hard. I'll go with Putin. I'll be aggressive."
Her two fellow ring girls were in hysterics but they themselves did not provide an answer for who they would want to knock out.
Putin, 69, previously held an honorary black belt but in light of recent events, the World Taekwondo Federation revoked it last month.
The organisation said it “strongly condemns the brutal attacks on innocent lives in Ukraine, which go against the World Taekwondo vision of ‘Peace is More Precious than Triumph’ and the World Taekwondo values of respect and tolerance”.
“In this regard, World Taekwondo has decided to withdraw the honorary 9th dan black belt conferred to Mr. Vladimir Putin in November 2013.
“World Taekwondo’s thoughts are with the people of Ukraine and we hope for a peaceful and immediate end to this war.”
Earlier this month, 5-0 professional boxer Jake Paul called out Putin and even released a training video and a mock poster.
He posted an image of Paul vs. Putin, accompanied with the caption: "Big news. Tickets on sale next week. #PaulPutin brought to you by @TimJDillon promotions."
In response, his older brother Logan, who fought Floyd Mayweather last year, wrote: "He needs to be Putin his place."
