Claressa Shields To Face Tori Nelson January 12th

Following her dominating victory over Nikki Adler in August, Claressa Shields will return to the ring on January 12th at the Turning Stone Casino in Verona, New York.

The current WBC & IBF super-middleweight title holder, Shields will face off against Tori Nelson, who just defeated Latashia Burton. The fight will air on the SHObox series of fights aired by Showtime, and be the first title defense for the two time olympic gold medalist.

Many believe that following this fight, Shields will be scheduled to face off against unified world female champion Christina Hammer.  Hammer was ringside for Shields’ victory over Adler, and defender her titles against Gifty Amanua Ankrah this past weekend. Hammer secured a fourth round stoppage victory over her Ghanaian opponent.
