Claressa Shields Dominates Tori Nelson in ShoBox Main Event

SHOWTIME

In the first, both ladies eyed each other with some degree of respect, not looking to make a fight-ending mistake.

Nelson displayed toughness throughout the bout, but little in terms of skill as a patient, poised Shields picked her apart to the head and body. Shields made the first move firing away with combinations, but Nelson was not awed. "She definitely did what I thought she was going to do, be aggressive, try to pin me against the ropes". Nelson for her part was game if not effective.

An assertive Shields went after Nelson to begin the fifth round, but Nelson took her power well.

"I didn't think she was a walkover but I did say that I was better skilled and that I was stronger", Shields told Showtime, which televised the fight live.

"A lot of times boxers can be famous and stars on TV, but they don't attract fans and people won't spend money to come see them fight", Salita said. So I stopped trying to go in because I didn't want to get head-butted and get cut. "But she was a tough girl".

Claressa Shields dominated Tori Nelson on Friday night, but she didn't get the knockout she sought.

Shields tried her best to get a knockout in the 10th round, but wasn't able to hurt Nelson with any of her punches.

Flint's Claressa Shields is preparing for her upcoming fight against Tori Nelson. Shields looked to take control in the second, landing lead rights to start two and three punch combos.

"If she's so good, why's she retiring?" said Shields, who compiled a 77-1 record as an amateur with the lone defeat coming at the 2012 world championships.

Hammer recently signed with Salita Promotions and was scheduled to fight on the undercard tonight before work visa issues forced a postponement. But she'll be on hand for Shields' fight as a special guest, just as she was last August, engaging in some trash-talking in the ring after Shields claimed the title belts.

She's likely to return to the ring in April and perhaps drop down in weight to face unbeaten middleweight champ Christina Hammer of Germany in June or July. She's more anxious about me than I am about her.
