Claressa Shields calls Alejandra Jimenez’ bluff!
The self proclaimed G.W.O.A.T (Greatest Woman Of All Time) and unified junior middleweight champion Claressa “T-Rex” Shields, always looking for new challengers, may have just found one.
Newly crowned unified female super middleweight champion Alejandra Jimenez (12-0-1, 9ko) is fresh off of dethroning Franchon Crews-Dezun. Without delay, she called out Shields. As expected, we all know the Detroit three-divisional champion wasn’t going to let that slide.
Shields took to social media and not only accepted the challenge, but let it be known she felt her former foe had won the fight.
The Mexican unified female champion has stated wanting the fight at middleweight. However, a case can be made why Shields should consider going back to her old division and take the fight there.
THE BETTER OPTION
The unified junior middleweight champion has expressed wanting to fight the other unified super middleweight champion Elin Cederroos (8-0, 4ko). The 34-year-old Swedish champion was victorious against Alicia Napoleon-Espinosa on the undercard of Shields dominating performance against Ivana Habazin.
Furthermore, the Detroit champion could position herself to become a two-divisional undisputed champion. That was something that eluded her at super middleweight and now it can happen within the next two fights.
Shields is never one to shy away from a challenge and loves being callout, so this is the perfect opportunity to add even more accolades to an already impressive career.
