Claressa Shields Signs A Multi-Year Deal With The PFL

Claressa Shields, a two-time Olympic gold medalist and three-division boxing champion, has been signed to a multi-year deal by the Professional Fighters League (PFL).

The undisputed middleweight champion in boxing has made a name for herself in her own right. Shields has managed to become undisputed in two-weight classes, as she now tries to forge a name in the PFL.

In 2020, Shields started taking MMA lessons with Roberto Alencar. Her record in MMA is currently 1-1. In her first bout, Shields stopped Brittney Elkin.

Nevertheless, Shields’ next fight was not the best. She came up short against Abigail Montes, as she lost via a split decision. With that being said, Shields has plenty to prove.

“I am excited to return to a fighter-first organization, and I can’t wait to return to The PFL SmartCage. My goal remains unchanged; I will be the first athlete to hold championships in both boxing and MMA simultaneously. I have grown so much since my first MMA fight and cannot wait to put my skills on display,” Shields

“It is a privilege to announce the PFL has re-signed the most dominant women’s boxer in the world, Claressa Shields, to a new multi-year agreement. Claressa and the PFL share a fighter first, merit-based value system and take on the world attitude. We are proud to welcome “The GWOAT” back to the PFL and the sport of MMA,” Peter Murray (CEO of the PFL)
