Claressa Shields (10-0; 2 KOs), only 24, has a truly unique career behind her. As an amateur, she was a two-time Olympic gold medalist. As a pro, she won his third World Championship title in just 10 of his professional matches with last night’s victory. In addition, he is an undisputed middleweight champion.

Shields won last night the vacant super welterweight WBO / WBC World Championship belts against Ivana Habazin (20-4; 7 KOs). Although she had promised a knockout victory, Shields eventually won by unanimous points. In the sixth round had to count for Habazin, but the 10 rounds went through. Shields won every round.


She broke Vasyl Lomachenko’s record, which required 12 games to qualify for the World Championship in three different weight classes.
