Swimsuit model turned boxer, Avril Mathie, is planning a big year as she continues her boxing career, with her next fight set for March 2.  

She posted: 

Mathie is good friends with UFC featherweight contender Brian Ortega and legendary octagon announcer Bruce Buffer, and she is signed to management company MTK Global, run by British former European middleweight champion Matthew Macklin.  

She decided to pursue boxing earlier this year. 

She won Miss Hawaiian Tropic Australia in 2012, Miss Swimsuit USA International in 2014 and Las Vegas International Model Search in 2015.  

And now she’s a boxer. 

Pretty crazy pivot.
