Shields - Hammer

A surprisingly one-sided affair. I thought Hammer would put up more of a fight.

She wants Brækhus next. I don't know how Brækhus would do moving up.

Same here, I thought Hammer's size & jab would give Shields more of a problem.

From what I read Shields didn't make too many fans claiming she's the best woman ever - only 9 fights into her career.

Undisputed female middleweight boxing champ Claressa Shields says she’s 100% confident she could beat male fighters … and she’s calling them out by name. Shields was a BEAST in her title fight this weekend against then-undefeated Christina Hammer — dominating every round en route to an obvious unanimous decision. It’s clear Shields is on another level.



But, Shields doesn’t just consider herself the best female fighter alive — she thinks she’s better than most MALE fighters too … and she’s willing to back it up.



“I spar with men. I drop men. I bust [men’s noses]. I beat men up all the time,” Shields says.


That’s when Claressa began naming names … from Keith Thurman to Shawn Porter to Gennady Golovkin.


“I think I can beat up Keith Thurman … I really do.”


FYI, Thurman is undefeated with a 29-0-1 record. He’s held multiple titles.



“They may be stronger than me, but their boxing ability isn’t like mine. GGG, he’s older now, but I could give GGG a run for his money.”
We asked if she could honestly hang with the brute strength and power of a male fighter — and again, she wasn’t worried.



“Power for power isn’t a question because what is boxing? Boxing is the sweet science. It’s not about strength … because people were saying Christina Hammer was stronger than me. They were saying all these girls were stronger than me, but did you not see the head movement that I had during the fight? See the defense? The offense? The traps I set!?”


“If I were to get in there with a man, I would do a lot more of that. And, I do have some power. I’m not gonna say I’m stronger than them, but if I set up the right shots with the right timing?!?!”

Big talk from someone who hasn't even scored a knockdown as a pro.

As far as power goes, if a man and a woman are the same size there's no guarantee that the man will hit harder. ESPN Sport Science demonstrated this a few years back

yeah, really - what sort of men is she dropping in sparring?

And thinks she can handle GGG?

Not too long ago some thought Rousey could beat Floyd too.

Shields is pretty good, but she isn't nearly the greatest of all-time. Her next big test will be S. Marshall of England who defeated her in the amateurs. Shields will beat Braekhus if they meet at 154 largely because Braekhus is 37 and is much smaller.

Shields isn't the best of All Time, at least not yet. She's only 24 years old with nine pro fights under her belt. She's got plenty of time to improve.

The problem for Shields is Hammer is the second best fighter around her weight. There's talk of dropping to 154 to fight the 37-year-old Cecilia Braekhus, but she has to come up from 147. A fight with the lone fighter to ever defeat Shields (amateurs), Savannah Marshall of England could be an interesting fight in a year after Marshall gets more accustomed to the professional ranks.
