We're used to seeing Jennifer Lopez looking like a million dollars. But a million-dollar baby? That's a new one.

The multitalented star gives Rocky Balboa a run for his money with a steamy boxing-themed cover shoot for V Magazine's Sports Issue, though we can't recall ever seeing Sly sporting Prada in the ring.

Photographed by Mario Testino and styled in Prada by Carine Roitfeld (who else would you want in your corner?), the L'Oréal Paris frontwoman flashes her killer thighs as she suits up in boxing gear paired with a white knotted top and red silk jacket.

The accompanying sporty spread sees the hot heavyweight rocking a slick pompadour as she packs a punch in a black perforated leather jacket, gem-encrusted bodysuit worn underneath a silk boxing robe, and (brace yourself, boys) nothing but boxing gloves paired with bare skin.

Speaking of big reveals, Lopez opens up about her street-smart image ("I’ve always felt like a tough girl from the Bronx ... but I have a soft core”) and working through her split with Marc Anthony, with whom she is partnering for the Univision talent show Q’Viva: The Chosen.

"I mean, we’re parents and friends first,” she says.

“That will be the thread that ties us together. I don’t know if people expect it to be negative just because the relationship didn’t work out.”

For now, the pop star is saving her battles for the boxing ring, claiming that her V shoot made her feel "tougher."

"I know how to fight!” she says, referring to her scrappy, niche-defying rise through the Hollywood ranks.

"I can take a lot of punches and still keep going. I’ve been trained like a boxer to go 15 rounds.”

And though the fashion designer certainly has the entrepreneurial spirit of George Foreman, her fierce pose and swagger are pure Muhammad Ali.

Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee? That's our Fly Girl.
