Claressa Shields is ready to make history in front of family and friends, as the undisputed middleweight champion competes in the first boxing event inside Detroit’s Little Caesars Arena on June 3. 

Defending her status as the undisputed middleweight champion against Maricela Cornejo, Shields’ fight will air on DAZN. 

“This is a dream come true for me. Born and raised in Flint, you know I’ve come to many games here to watch the Pistons play,” Shields said. “Me and my grandmother watched the Pistons play on TV when they won the championship, and now to actually be here fighting in front of all these fans…This was unheard of in women’s boxing when I turned pro.”

Holding gold since 2017, Shields became the undisputed middleweight champion in 2019 when she beat Christina Hammer. After becoming undisputed at super welterweight, Shields returned to middleweight and beat rival Savannah Marshall in October to become a two-time undisputed middleweight champion. The self-proclaimed “GWOAT” has also unified titles at super middleweight.

Cornejo is a three-time world title challenger. On a three-fight win streak, the 36-year-old replaces Hanna Gabriels, who was removed from the card after failing a VADA drug test.

With six wins via knockout, Cornejo will look to finally have gold put around her waist after falling short in the past.

Ranked number one by the WBC, WBO, and the IBF, Cornejo is a fresh matchup for Shields, who beat Gabriels in 2018.
