Undefeated American superstar Claressa Shields puts her undisputed middleweight championship on the line against late replacement challenger Maricela Cornejo on June 3rd, live streamed on DAZN from the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan.
Shields (13-0, 2 KOs) was originally scheduled to fight Hanna Gabriels in a rematch, but Gabriels failed a drug test and was pulled from the card. Shields team didn’t want to reschedule the entire event and decided to find a late replacement and that fighter who stepped up to the challenge was 36-year-old Maricela Cornejo.
Cornejo (16-5, 6 KOs) who has never won a world title in her boxing career is ready to shock the world by beating Shields in her hometown and taking the undisputed title with her.
