Shields fights to become three-division champion

Undisputed female middleweight world champion Claressa Shields (9-0, 2 KOs) will aim to make history by becoming the fastest fighter in boxing, male or female, to become a three-division world champion when she takes on former world champion Ivana Habazin (20-3, 7 KOs) on August 17 for the vacant WBO junior middleweight title at Dort Federal Event Center in Shields’ hometown of Flint, Mich. The vacant WBC women’s diamond super welterweight championship will also be on the line in Shields’ first professional fight in her hometown. Showtime will televise. The undercard for the telecast will be announced in the coming weeks.

  • I don’t think this title would be worth much because female boxing operates at about 2% of the quality of male boxing. There are so few female boxers in the world that its one of the easiest sports of all to become a “division/world champion”. No matter how one looks at it, these titles have very little value.

    • Well some of the Women weight classes have some decent fighters but Super Middle, Middle, Jr Middle. No disrespect to Clarissa Shields she is good at what she does but its like she’s a bully picking on kids unable to fight back
