Boxing champ Claressa Shields re-signs with the PFL

Renowned boxing world champion Claressa Shields is set to continue her legacy under the PFL banner, as both Shields and the PFL have solidified a multi-year deal. The exciting news reveals that she is gearing up for a remarkable return to the PFL cage in 2024.

The announcement was made on social media by the promotion, with a video message from the combatant.

In the video, she says: “I have some great news today. So, after a year and half of dominating boxing, I’m happy to annouce that I will be expanding my deal with the PFL. I will be fighting inside the smart cage next year at 155 lbs.”

In June 2021, Shields faced Brittney Elkin in the PFL cage to begin her MMA career. She won the match via T/KO in the third round.

In October 2021, the world champion boxer faced Abigail Montes in MMA. However, she ended up losing the match by split decision.

Shields has been out of the ring for around two years and has a 1-1 MMA record. However, Shields’ inactivity was due to the fact that she competed in the boxing ring on three separate occasions. Shields competed against Ema Kozin, Savannah Marshall, and Maricela Cornejo.

Claressa Shields’ name resonates with dominance and excellence in the realm of boxing. She is regarded as the best female boxer of all time by many. Additionally, Shields confidently claims the title of ‘GWOAT’—an acronym for the “Greatest Woman of All Time.”

Shields recently attacked Jake Paul for questioning her prowess in the field of combat sports. She reminded Paul of the result of her match with Savannah Marshall in a direct tweet, who Paul predicted would win.

Shields then asked Paul to arrange a match between her and Shadasia Green, so she can prove him wrong once more.

Shields’ victory in her most recent match prompted Green to criticise her harshly, which heightened the hostility between them. Even Shields did not find Green’s performance to be impressive.

It seems Shields has a lot going on with the PFL contract and the boxing rivalry.
