Claressa Shields Looks to Make History Again!


WBC/WBO world Super Welterweight champion Claressa Shields (10-0, 2 KOs) returns to face IBF women’s champ Marie-Eve Dicaire (17-0, 0 KOs) May 9 at the Dort Federal Event Center in Flint, Michigan. Shields – Dicaire will be aired live on SHOWTIME.

This bout will also be for the vacant WBA Women’s world championship. Shields announced the upcoming bout during an interview on Olympic Channel. Already the current unified/undisputed women’s Middleweight world champion, she is trying to make history by becoming the first undisputed world champion simultaneously in two divisions during the modern-day four-belt era.

For the unbeaten Dicaire, this will be her first professional fight outside of her native Canada. The 33-year-old southpaw from St-Eustache, Quebec, Canada defeated Chris Namus to win the IBF 154-pounds women’s world title December 2018 and made 3 successful defenses of the title in 2019.

During the official press release, Shields expressed excitement to once again fight in her hometown. She is looking forward to making another statement for women’s boxing.

“I can’t wait to make history again on May 9. Fighting in Flint in front of all my fans has been a dream of mine since turning pro. Having the opportunity to make history by fighting for the undisputed title in a second weight division is something I’m very proud of.”

“Fighting against undefeated IBF 154-pound champion Marie-Eve Dicaire continues my quest to fight the very best in women’s boxing. And headlining on SHOWTIME again will continue my goal to lift women’s boxing to new heights. I’m going to give Flint and fight fans all over the world a night to remember on May 9!”

Shields likes to call herself not only the best pound for pound women’s fighter in the world, but the GWOAT (Greatest Woman of All-Time) of boxing. She will get the opportunity to strengthen her claim with a win over Dicaire.
