It would be "amazing" to fight Katie Taylor | Cris Cyborg

MMA world champion Cris Cyborg says she's open very open to the prospect of a crossover bout against undisputed lightweight boxing champion Katie Taylor. 

Cyborg has landed four world mixed martial arts titles but at the age of 35 is keen to step into the boxing ring for a moot super-fight against the Bray woman.

"I love challenges. I've got Arlene Blencowe next in MMA, but if we can do the Taylor fight, it will be amazing," the Brazilian told Sky Sports ahead of defending her featherweight title at Bellator 248.

"I like to have challenges. And I really want a boxing fight, I really like boxing. I've tried wrestling, I've tried jiu jitsu, I've tried Muay Thai. Always when you compete in a separate sport like this, you learn a lot.

"Before I was doing lot of boxing sparring. I was sparring pro boxer Raquel Miller. I was thinking I was going to do boxing and then we were told it was MMA, so we went back to working on that.

"For me it's easy to separate. I really don't have to think too much. When I'm boxing I'm focused on boxing and I don't try to kick an opponent or anything."
