Claressa Shields to top all-women PPV

Undefeated three-division world champion Claressa Shields (10-0, 2 KOs) will attempt to become the first boxer in the four-belt era to become an undisputed female junior middleweight champion in two weight divisions when she faces unbeaten IBF super welterweight champion Marie-Eve Dicaire (17-0, 0 KOs) in a 154-pound unification bout The $29.95 “SUPERWOMEN” PPV will take place on March 5 from the Dort Financial Center in Shields’ hometown of Flint, Michigan.

The winner will walk away with Shields’ WBC and WBO titles, Dicaire’s IBF belt, and the WBA (Super) crown, the first time in its 99-year history that the WBA has awarded a super champion designation to a female boxer. Shields, if victorious, will make history as the first man or woman to have become undisputed champion in two weight divisions in the four-belt era.

The supporting bouts feature undefeated 6-foot tall 198-lb heavyweight Danielle Perkins (2-0, 1 KO), undefeated Floyd Mayweather Sr.-trained light heavyweight Nadia Meknouzi (5-0, 5 KOs), and current WBA interim super welterweight champion Raquel Miller (10-0, 4 KOs) in bouts to be announced over the next days and weeks.

  • This is a historic matchup but they would need Laila Ali’s return to justify a PPV. Womens Boxing still has a long way to go. Only makes sense if none of the networks were willing to broadcast.

    • Yes, I agree. However, we need a young Laila now. Laila too old of a lioness to claim territory to a younger lioness in the jungle now.

  • Superwomen who can’t punch. Just 2 KOs between them. I’ll pass on this trash.

  • Did I read that correctly? They have 2 stoppages between both of them? Good grief.

  • Put it on Showtime and I’ll watch. There’s no reason to do this on ppv – just a bad idea.

  • A WBA Super Title? When can we expect a Super Duper Title from the WBA clowns?

    • Hopefully they’re not reading your post. we don’t want to give them any ideas…

  • The only female fighter who is arguably worthy of PPV that I can think of is Amanda Nunes of MMA…

    • I would have agreed with you before her last two fights or so, but I think Nunes may be winding down these days.

        • Yeah, she’s already talked about retiring following her last fight and they just had a baby as well. Amanda Nunes has 2 belts in 2 divisions but she doesn’t really have many interesting fights left.

          • I’m sorry but Amanda Nunes partner is a woman, so they’re not having a baby. Do I need to explain to you how that works?

          • They already had the kid. She was born in September. Amanda Nunes will be responsible for raising the kid, feeding her, clothing her and keeping a roof over her head – so as far as I’m concerned, that’s her kid.

      • Not much of an MMA fan at all…..I much prefer boxing….but Nunes was as fun to watch as any MMA fighter I can think of, male or female. Her destruction of Rousey was fun to watch, and her brawl with Cyborg, even though it only lasted about 30 seconds, was about as exciting as it gets for that sport….

    • Nunes may have pop in MMA but as we saw with Mcloudmouth he couldnt bust a grape in Boxing lmao

      • McGregor is lucky he didn’t get to fight Pacman. With his over reaching chin-up-in-the-air style he’d have been a prime candidate to suffer a 1st round KO. Pacquiao wouldn’t have faffed around like Mayweather did.

  • the ONLY womens worthy PPV is Katy Taylor vs the womens P4P Queen and 7 weight division World Champion Amanda Serrano and she has more real KOs then both of these two hype jobs have in total fights and she is 100x more beautiful

  • OMG, not on March 5th. Oh, gosh I’ve got that thing on March 5th, you know, the thing. I’m not going to be able to tune into this extravaganza of boxing. Darn.

  • So much negativity against these female warrior boxers. Look on the bright side of things?

  • The Mayweather-trained Nadia Meknouzi is 40 years old. A rather advanced age for a 5-0 fighter….

  • All of you scrubs hating but she’s a 3 time gold medalist. She’s finally getting her just due and pushing women’s boxing forward. Can any of you scrubs say you’ve accomplished anything of this magnitude…I thought so. You’re commenting on her not the other way around. I won’t be watching but its the principal.
