  • Olympic gold medalist boxer Claressa Shields signs multiyear deal to fight in MMA, sources say

MMA Junkie confirmed Shields' signing to PFL with two people with knowledge of the situation, who requested anonymity because the promotion has yet to make an official announcement. While many would argue that women's MMA still has a ways to go before it is as appreciated as the men's divisions, a boxing superstar like Claressa Shields has noticed from personal experience just how far ahead women's mixed martial arts is than women's boxing when it comes to equal treatment.

Shields, who has won all 10 of her fights since turning professional after the 2016 Rio Olympics, will continue her boxing career while she enters the MMA realm with a series of special attraction fights in 2021 and a place in the 2022 PFL campaign.

One of the PFL's top performers is lightweight competitor and 2019 season victor Kayla Harrison, who like Shields won Olympic gold in both 2012 and 2016.

In her last fight on January 10th she annihilated (Ivana Hazabin) to win belts at 154 pounds, already having won some at 168 after gaining undisputed status at 160. In addition to her two Olympic golds, Shields is a two-time amateur world champion and the fastest boxer to earn titles in three different divisions.

Shields' interest in trying MMA has been rumored for years, and she also expressed interest in taking on UFC champions Amanda Nunes and Cris "Cyborg" Justino in a boxing ring. Shields will make a run in the sport of MMA under the Professional Fighters League [PFL] come 2021.

"I just want to be great at everything", she said.

"I can tell you, this is not as bad as I thought", Shields said, on the capture aspect of MMA. "I thought I would absolutely hate it. I thought I would get frustrated when she grabbed my leg and try to bite her or something, but it didn't happen". The promotion offers a lightweight division of 155 for women, led by 2019 victor Kayla Harrison. "I know that's what they are used to, all these clout chasers out there. I just wanna test myself really". Anything I say I can do, I put my best foot forward and I do it. As Shields begins her MMA journey, she will continue her career in the Sweet Science, PFL CEO Peter Murray and her management revealed in a release on Tuesday. I haven't lost a fight since I was 17 years old, and I'm 25. "The next time they see me in the cage, I'm gonna have muscles coming out my damn neck training so hard to win". The PFL will return for their third season in the spring of 2021.
