Claressa Shields Dominates To Defend Titles - Reacts To Her Latest Win

Claressa Shields Dominates To Defend Titles - Reacts To Her Latest Win”

Crutchfield said he thought Nelson was ready to quit but instead the challenger responded with perhaps her best round of the fight before getting staggered by Shields just before the bell. The difference in class was evident as Shields did as she pleased in style.

It's because of Crutchfield, the coach who groomed her into a champion, acting as a surrogate father as he pushed Shields through all the early-morning workouts and a chaotic home life.

Shields started the fourth round strong by letting her hands go and landing combinations. She did her game plan but I just did more. "But I want somebody that can tell me when the rounds are close, or when it's a 5-5 fight and you've got to win the last two rounds". You've got to be able to tell me something to kick some fire in me, and Jason knows exactly what to do and what to say. This city, despite all its problems and the distractions of family, and this gym, where the sign by the drinking fountain reminds everyone to drink bottled water only.

"She was definitely tough and brought a good fight". Flint is a really hard place to be. She don't want me to see her. She won her titles by stopping Nikki Adler (16-1, 9 KOs) in the fifth round of her previous fight, August 4 at MGM Grand Detroit.

Nelson displayed toughness throughout the bout, but little in terms of skill as a patient, poised Shields picked her apart to the head and body.

Before entering the ring, Shields predicted she would win by TKO in either the fifth or sixth rounds.

"As far as fighting me, I think she's pretty scared, to be honest", Shields said. She's more anxious about me than I am about her.

WBAN is publishing some interviews with Tori Nelson, Claressa Shields, and Christina Hammer who hopes to fight Shields in the Summer of this year. She was supposed to have fought today, on the undercard.

Shields is expected to move down from 168 pounds to 160 for her next fight, probably sometime in April.

On Friday, January 12, 2018, Claressa Shields was featured in the main event of the years first edition of ShoBox: The New Generation.

"I landed every shot that I thought possible to land".
