Rio 2016: Clarissa Shields talks with reporters after a convincing victory over Nouchka Fontijn (NED)

Rio De Janeiro – Claressa Shields made history again, becoming the first U.S. Boxer to win back-to-back Olympic gold. Shields won the first ever Olympic gold medal in Women’s boxing at the London 2012 Olympic games.

A focused Shields used her quickness and power on the rangy Nouchka Fontijn (NED) and said afterwards she felt the Dutchwoman had approached their bout with the wrong tactics.

“Her game plan for me was to stay off the ropes and stay in the centre of the ring,” SHIELDS said. “If that’s her game plan, that’s the wrong game plan.”
