Most Valuable Promotions (MVP) today announced the signing of undefeated WBC Silver Super-Middleweight champion Shadasia ‘The Sweet Terminator’ Green to its growing roster of accomplished fighters.
The announcement comes in conjunction with the official naming of her opponent, Elin Cederroos (8-1, 4 KO’s), for the February 4th Serrano-Cruz, Baumgardner-Mekhale undercard at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden.
The WBC-sanctioned bout will serve as a world-title eliminator, with the winner moving on to become the mandatory challenger for the WBC world title.
“2023 has started out with an incredible amount of exciting announcements for MVP, ” said MVP co-founders Jake Paul and Nakisa Bidarian. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Shadasia and her camp to our team of widely talented and passionate athletes. Her ability to take over the ring and demolish her opponents is truly something special. We look forward to her first official bout under MVP this February at Madison Square Garden!”
Green, the former Team USA star, who boasts an 11-0 record, 10 KO’s and the record for fastest KO in women’s fight, joins MVP after a trailblazing few years. As a former standout college basketball star, Green spent years as a starter for Old Dominion University (ODU) where she was impressively named Third Team All-CAA and ranked top 20 in the CAA in scoring. The Paterson, NJ native later broke out into the amateur boxing scene when she joined the U.S. National Team as a heavyweight after just five fights, earning a silver medal at the 2016 World Championships in Kazakhstan. In 2019, Green transitioned to professional boxing where she quickly gained notoriety as a top female contender, ranking #1 in the WBC and IBO, and #2 in the WBA, ultimately earning her the Paterson Laila Ali Award.
“My motto is ‘be phenomenal or be forgotten’ – a mantra that fits so perfectly with the team that Jake and Nakisa have created,” said Green. “We’re striving for greatness together and I can’t wait to work side-by-side with them for this next phase of my career. My first fight against Cederroos will further cement my place among these other incredibly talented MVP fighters.”
Green and Cederroos face off at a pivotal time in their careers. With a world title shot up for grabs, Cederroos is hungry for the chance to fight for the belt once more with only Green in her way. The Swedish-born fighter, who made her professional debut in April 2017 with an impressive 4th round technical knockout of Sanja Ostojic, will arrive to the Hulu Theatre with an 8-1, 4 KO’s record, having only lost to the current, undisputed super middleweight champion Franchon Crews-Dezurn on the Taylor-Serrano undercard last year. A former IBF and WBA world champion, Cederroos was most recently ranked as the world’s best active female super-middleweight by The Ring.
