Claressa Shields shuts out Tori Nelson in unanimous decision

Claressa Shields shuts out Tori Nelson in unanimous decision

The 41-year-old Nelson (17-1-3, 1 KO), who won a middleweight world title in 2011 but had only fought twice since June 2015, lost for the first time in her career.

Super middleweight women's champion Claressa Shields completely outworked and outclassed Tori Nelson, on Friday night, handing Nelson her first professional loss while retaining her WBC and IBF world title belts at Turning Stone Hotel and Casino in Verona, N.Y. I don't really know what's going to happen. Shields will look to use her combination of speed and power in this matchup. She weighed 180 before beginning training November 10 for the fight vs. Nelson and had no trouble dropping pounds once she got in the ring and began eating healthy again. "She's at 168 right now so getting to 160 shouldn't be a problem at all". The Flint, Michigan, native wants to challenge WBC/WBO middleweight champ Christina Hammer in the fight after that.

Nelson did land a sharp body shot in the seventh round as she put Shields on the ropes and landed several more punches, but the 22-year-old Shields, who likes to boast she's the greatest of all-time, managed to dodge most of the hard punches and landed a right hand that stunned Nelson and sent her backward. "I can't wait to fight her and show her that she isn't [better than me]". "And I'm gonna kick Hammer's ass". "I can't wait to fight her and show her that she isn't (better than me)".

For her part, Hammer said she's looking forward to getting into the ring with the two-time Olympic gold medalist although Showtime indicated both could have a tuneup fight in April before meeting sometime this summer.

They were both present at the SWAI Awards last night but kept a low profile, refusing to comment on the matter. Russell said: "It's been a bit hard with a manager gone who is really well-respected in the club".

Germany's Hammer (22-0, 10 KOs, 1 NC) was supposed to fight on the undercard Friday night, but watched the action from ringside. She's also the only American boxer to ever win two consecutive gold medals at the Olympics. It's our time to shine.

Shields' victory was televised on Showtime, with the MI fighter becoming the first woman to headline a fight card on premium cable, having done so in March and again in August 2017.

"I'm long-time world champion and I have more experience".

What does Shields have in mind if she does indeed beat Hammer and win the middleweight title?
