Italian model Elisabetta Canalis, 43, is training hard even after her debut as a kickboxer at the Night of Kick and Punch, where she faced Rachele Muratori, 21, in a bout scheduled for three one-and-a-half minute rounds.
“One of the reasons I wanted to get in the ring was to help kickboxing get more coverage in the media,” the 43-year-old model explained
“I live in Los Angeles so I know how much attention combat sports get in the United States.”
Canalis, an Italian actress and showgirl who has dated George Clooney and former footballer Christian Vieri, confessed she’s a big fan of UFC fighter Amanda Nunes.
In order to prepare for her fight with Muratori, the 43-year-old has been training hard with Joseph Lasiri and Angelo Valente.
She recently shared some of her workouts with her followers on social media, but she definitely showed off a little too much, risking a wardrobe malfunction.
The Italian model and TV personality is also a PETA attivist.
Canalis featured in PETA’s fall “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” campaign, which appeared in advertisements and on billboards worldwide.
