A unique night where Claressa Shields will try to become the first boxer in history to conquer four belts and become the undisputed world champion in two divisions, in what is expected to be an outright war.
The fight has generated great expectations because, as we all know, this clash was scheduled for May of last year; However, with the COVID-19 pandemic, the match had to be postponed, but as they would say, all deadlines are met and today, finally after several months of waiting, we will enjoy of these warriors who not only will put their belts at stake but also the honor and responsibility of knowing that this is the first women’s fight to headline a pay-per-view card since that meeting held in New York in 2001 between Laila Ali and Jacqui Frazier- Lyle.
For both Shields and Dicaire, this fight represents a great step in the sport, as after a lot of walking, knocking on doors and showing that they have quality in their fists and that they can be equal or more competitive than men, the opportunity has arrived, and regardless of the result, we are sure that both fighters will provide one of their best performances, as, in addition, for both it is their first performance of 2021.
