Claressa Shields kept her unbeaten record intact, as she became the first undisputed champion in two weight divisions defeating Marie-Eve Dicaire via unanimous decision. Shields, thoroughly dominated her Canadian opponent, with scores of 100-90 from all three judges. She is now 11-0 in her professional boxing career.
Speaking at the post-fight interview Shields complained about Dicaire constantly headbutting and elbowing her during the course of the fight. However, she added that all those don’t matter, since she is the first boxer in the four-belt era to become undisputed champion in two weight classes.
‘100-90, I can’t be mad about it’
Claressa Shields was quoted as saying, “100-90, I can’t be mad about it. But she just kept headbutting me and elbowing me. I was trying to get a knockout, that’s what I wanted, and it almost happened a couple times, but we got two minutes, and then we got the ref breaking it up when she’s holding and fucking elbowing me. But at the end of the day, I am the new undisputed champion at 154, first boxer in history to do it, undisputed twice.”
Now that, Claressa has become the undisputed champion, she still does seem hungry for more. There is a possibility that she might take on Katie Taylor or Savannah Marshall. She also has a possible PFL debut lined up.
Is Claressa on her way to ‘GWOAT’ status?
