She's been a stripper, high-priced escort and topless newsreader and now Lisa Lewis can add boxer to her skill set.

Lewis took to the ring in Auckland tonight at the Royal Rampage, an event she set up herself and promoted.

Touted as the first WBC world title championship ever to be held in New Zealand the event was held at The Trusts Arena in Henderson.

Lewis squared up against Mexican-American professional boxer Mia St John in an undercard bout.

St John came out on top but Lewis managed to fight her way through four rounds.

She took to Facebook soon after the fight to update her fans.

"I survived 4 rounds with the WBC 5x world champ. The class of Mia St. John shone through but I'm proud of my pro-debut efforts for training for three weeks only," she wrote.

Lewis became a household name after streaking in a bikini during an All Black game.

It later emerged that Lewis was working as a$7000-a-night "full service" escort.

She still has a profile on www.newzealandgirls.co.nz where she advertises 70 minutes for $500 or $1000 for two hours.

Before tonight's fight Lewis posted a photo of herself with her mother Karina Fitch.

"Tonight I stand up and fight for what I want. I fight for what I deserve. I fight for respect," she wrote.
