Natasha Jonas Game for a Title Fight with Claressa Shields at 154

Unified junior middleweight champion Natasha Jonas (12-2-1, 8KO) is open to the idea of fighting three-time undisputed champion Claressa “T-Rex” Shields (13-0, 2KO). However, she first must take care of IBF champion Marie Eve Dicaire (18-1, 1KO).

Jonas has found boxing glory in the junior middleweight division. She has had a tremendous 2022, defeating champions Chris Namus and Patricia Berghult en route to becoming a unified champion. Ironically, the belts she has collected were available due to Shields leaving the division to fight arch-nemesis Savannah Marshall.

The self-proclaimed G.W.O.A.T (Greatest Woman Of All-Time) has expressed a desire to return to junior middleweight. She even hinted at fighting Jonas or WBC champion Terri Harper in the United Kingdom or United States.


In an interview with Boxing Social, the unified champion expressed liking the idea of making that fight and has no problem fighting in the United States.

“I think she (Shields) mentioned about doing a return with staff in the USA. She said she’s not scared to go to people’s home grounds, and I don’t know if that fight is the same marketability in the USA. I don’t know. Maybe I could be wrong.”

“That’s definitely a fight I’d been looking for, and I’d even go to the US to do it. But I have to concentrate on what’s in front of me first.”

Jonas locked in an upcoming showdown with the IBF champion, Dicaire, for November 12 at the Manchester Arena. if victorious, she will walk away with three belts, lining up an undisputed showdown with Harper.
