Reis, 35, is 19-7-1 as a professional boxer. Her last fight was this past November. She defeated Jessica Cameron in a split decision. The match was for the IBO and WBA super lightweight titles, which she’s held since 2020, as well as for the vacant WBO super lightweight title.Kali Reis fights against Jessica Camara.Getty Images
This is Reis’ third acting role. She previously starred in the film “Catch the Fair One,” in which she played a former boxer who infiltrated a sex trafficking operation in an attempt to find her missing sister.
She has also recently finished shooting the movie “Black Flies” with Sean Penn and Tye Sheridan, according to Deadline.
