Lateesha Mohl has competed a variety of combat sports events throughout the years, but in just a few short days, “The Honey Badger” will add “professional boxer” to her resumé.
After years of competing has an amateur in mixed martial arts, Mohl recently started competing in boxing. Now after posting a 2-1 amateur record, the 25-year-old fighter will make her professional boxing debut at ‘Fight Night’ at the Zembo Shrine in Harrisburg, PA, on Dec. 11.
The pro boxing debut will mark Mohl’s first professional fight throughout her combat sports career, and it comes at the perfect time.
Mohl went through a tough stretch in her career in the Revolution Fight Series, Art of War and Triton Fights promotions as she lost seven straight MMA fights after she won her amateur debut. While many would have walked away during that time, Mohl reinvented herself.
After having doubts on her career, Mohl started working with a mental coach and she believes that it made a huge difference in her career. After working with the coach, Mohl would go on to defeat Rosie DeMatteo for the Flex Fights 125-pound championship.
With every going in the right direction, Mohl cannot wait to officially be a professional athlete. After this fight, she isn’t sure if she’ll sign a contract with a promotion or not, but she does plan on being very active in boxing and kickboxing.
Prior to her pro debut, Mohl spoke with MyMMANews about becoming a professional athlete and everything that lead to this monumental part of her career. You can watch the full interview in the video above.
