Two-time Olympic gold medalist Claressa Shields (4-0, 2 KOs) will take on undefeated IBF challenger Tori Nelson (17-0-3, 2 KOs) in Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, New York today.
In her recent fights, Claressa has been impressive. She defeated Nikki Adler by TKO in the 5th round of their August 4th fight. Adler was undefeated going into the fight but Claressa easily picked her apart.
Undefeated WBC & IBF Super Middleweight Champ Claressa will look to continue her success against former world champ Nelson. Nelson is undefeated and last fought in November against Latasha Burton, who withdrew after two rounds.

A Flint, Michigan native, Claressa has been an inspiration to her community and it acts as one of her primary sources for motivation.
