Claressa Shields and Marie-Eve Dicaire square off in the unified women’s light middleweight title fight on Friday, March 5. The world championship bout headlines the “Super Woman” fight card live on pay-per-view from the Dort Financial Center in Flint, Michigan. The event is dedicated to this year’s international Women’s Day (Monday, March 8).
Undefeated Shields (10-0, 2 KO) puts her WBC and WBO titles on the line in a bid to become the first boxing world champion in the four-belt era, male or female, to capture the undisputed crown in two different weight classes. Unbeaten Dicaire (17-0, 0 KO) brings to the table her IBF belt and looks to dethrone one of the most prominent female boxers of all time. In addition, the vacant WBA (Super) and The Ring straps are up for grabs. The women’s contest is scheduled for ten rounds.
