VIDEO: Claressa Shields (USA) win her second straight World Boxing Championship Title

Reigning Olympic and World Champion Claressa Shields gave away a few inches to her Dutch opponent Nouchka Fontijn, but the reigning champion closed down the distance brilliantly to prevent Fontijn landing many clean shots. A strong second round from Fontijn closed the gap, but Shields returned stronger than ever and powered through to her second World title.

Combined with her Olympic gold medal from women’s boxing’s debut in 2012 and her inaugural world title in 2014, Shields becomes the first U.S. boxer, male or female, to earn three combined world or Olympic titles.
