Lucha Underground and lucha libre star Sexy Star is slated to soon make her boxing debut.
The international star recently spoke with Solo Wrestling about rumors swirling that she is done with pro wrestling:
“I never said that in any interview that I gave. I think it was a misunderstanding on the media’s behalf. When it happens that I present myself unmasked and make my real name known, it’s because I have a dream that I am fighting for and want to accomplish. If God allows it, it will happen on the 22nd of April, to be able to box.
I never said at any moment, some media outlet around there were the ones that mentioned or reported that ‘Sexy Star leaves the mask for the gloves’ or something like that. That was what led to the confusion, because I never made the comment that I was going to leave wrestling.
Yes, I had to get away from it a little and I’ve been on only a few shows. I thank all the promoters and people that have called from companies that have wanted to take me to their country. I just haven’t been able to, because I’ve been focusing on my boxing training. I have had only a few appearances for wrestling because those were dates I had already agreed to work from a long while back and I decided to fulfill those, because I don’t like to take back what I had agreed on.
But all that talk about me going to retire? No. I think wrestling saved my life. I owe it everything. I can say that the ring is my life. It is not my house. It is my life. Right now I don’t feel any motive to do it. I made a comment about it in an interview, that if I’m in boxing – a sport that demands a very strong physical preparation – then I think that my body is ready for the day that I return to wrestling and it will be with no problem.”
