Shields, a three-weight champion, has also strived to improve the recognition and financial reward for female fighters.

“It’s not just a women’s boxing match. It’s a fight, an event for women’s equality, and everyone that watches can play their part,” said Salita.

“Claressa is the best female fighter on the planet, not only because of her unmatched ring accomplishments, but also because she is fighting for equal opportunity outside the ring for all the fighters in the world.”
