Katy Perry debuted her new persona, The Lioness, during a boxing ring performance under the Brooklyn Bridge in New York to close the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night (25Aug13). The pop star donned boxing garb and a leopard-print sports bra for the song, and was surrounded by dancers dressed as boxers in gym sweats. The superfit star also showed off her skipping skills during the performance as she pretended she was preparing for a big fight.
