BOXING: Claressa Shields To Make History Boxing On Showtime
March 10, 2017
Two-time Olympic gold medalist Claressa Shields will make more history on March 10 when she becomes the first female professional boxer to headline a show on a premium network.
Shields, who defeated former USA Boxing teammate Franchon Crews last November in her professional debut, will headline a ShoBox: The New Generation card on Showtime at the MGM Grand in Detroit, in her home state of Michigan.
Shields, from Flint, faces Hungary’s Szilvia “Sunset” Szabados (15-8, 6 KOs), a former world title challenger, in a six-round super middleweight bout.
