Claressa Shields Dominates In Second Pro Fight, Wins by TKO

Claressa Shields Dominates In Second Pro Fight, Wins by TKO

Two-time Olympic boxing champion Claressa Shields carried the banner for Women’s Boxing into the ring as the main event on ShowTime Boxing Friday evening and put on a boxing clinic.

From the very first round, Shields landed clean, heavy punches to the face and head of Szilvia Szabados, but the 26-year old Hungarian, who came in with a record of 15-8, 6KO’s, showed sheer will and toughness, absorbing every blow thrown and landed by Shields. Make no mistake about it, Szabados is a seasoned pro, but the strength and athleticism of Shields were too overpowering and Referee Harvey Dock had no choice but to put an end to the punishment in the fourth round.

Shields’ stats for the bout speaks to how dominant she was:  265 total punches, 180 power punches, and 17 body punches landed.

Shields (2-0, 1KO) is now the new North American Boxing Federation Women’s Middleweight Champion.
