On March 15, 2008, Ragosina defeated Bermudian Teresa Perozzi to win a record 7 championship belts in a single fight, breaking Giselle Salandy's previous record of 6 belts won in a single fight. However, two weeks later, Salandy - a light middleweight boxer - defeated Karolina Lukasik in a match with 8 titles on the line to regain her record for titles won in a single fight.

On July 11, 2008, Ragosina won a controversial decision against Conjestina Achieng, winning a close but unanimous decision. One judge awarded Ragosina the fight by a single round, and the other two judges had Ragosina winning by a two-round margin. Some boxing observers believe Achieng won the fight.[3] Perhaps due to the controversial decision in the first fight, the two had a rematch on November 28, 2008, which Ragosina won more convincingly.[1]

On December 19, 2009, Ragosina defeated heavyweight world champion Pamela London by knockout to add two heavyweight championships to her resume - the WIBF Women's International Boxing Federation heavyweight title and the World Boxing Federation heavyweight title.[1] Despite a 65-pound (29 kg) weight disadvantage (Ragosina weighed in at 172 lb (78 kg), compared to London's 237 lb (108 kg)), the 5 ft 11 12 in (181 cm) Ragosina used her reach and quickness to knock out London in round 8. This brought Ragosina's record to 22-0, including a 16-0 record in title fights.

Ragosina is also a single mother.[4] She considers herself good friends with fighters Fedor Emelianenko, Alexander Povetkin, and Nikolai Valuev.[2]
