She's already a champion in the ring.

Now, trailblazing U.S. Olympic boxer Marlen Esparza is taking a swing at being a beauty-product mogul!

The bronze-medal-winning flyweight, who made history by becoming the first American to both qualify for and win a medal in women's boxing earlier this month during the sport's inaugural Olympics, will be launching a fashion and beauty line, E! News has exclusively learned.

The 23-year-old star athlete will be partnering with entertainment-management firm Robert Thorne Co. to develop the product line.

"She's relentless in the ring and she's beautiful, girly and charming with a winning personality," Thorne tells E! News. "We'll introduce Marlen to Hollywood and develop her fashion and beauty business for a robust career and business outside the ring."

Few details about the venture are being revealed at the moment, but the knockout stunner is certainly no stranger to going glam: She was featured in Vogue's gallery of Olympians last month, and is also the face of Cover Girl. (You might have caught her ubiquitous, kickass TV ad during the games.)

The best part? Esparza plans to donate a portion of the products' profits to groups that help support childhood fitness.

How's that for a winning punch?
