Claressa Shields Lets Christina Hammer Know What’s Up During Media Faceoff
Claressa Shields told Christina Hammer exactly what was going to happen when the two meet in the ring on Saturday night.
Shields and Hammer will make history Saturday night as the winner will take control over all of the Middleweight belts. The two women are both undefeated, and this is definitely living up to the hype of being labeled the biggest fight in women's boxing history.
The fight isn't just a big one for women in the ring, this is also a big step for women around the ring. The fight has been assigned two female judges and the referee will also be a woman.
Shields is roughly a 4-1 favorite over Hammer, but some boxing experts say that Shields has never faced someone with the ability that Hammer possesses.
One thing is definite, when the fight is over, only one woman will hold the unified Middleweight Championship for the first time ever. Things happen Saturday night on Showtime from Atlantic City.
There was more entertainment at the weigh in when Claressa backed up her nick name with a T-Rex behind her.
Michigan boxing fans will also be able to watch Jermaine Franklin from Saginaw take on Rydell Booker from Detroit before the Shields fight. The three fights are set to start around 9pm on Showtime.
