Claressa Shields becomes undisputed 154 lbs champion with shutout win vs. Marie-Eve Dicaire

Claressa Shields’ (11-0, 2 KOs) pay-per-view main event debut went as expected, with the two-time Olympic gold medalist picking apart Marie-Eve Dicaire (17-1, 0 KOs) in a shutout unanimous decision (100-90 x3) to become the undisputed junior middleweight champion — meaning she possesses the WBA, WBC, IBF, and WBO belts. Shields is already the undisputed middleweight champ, making her the first boxer, man or woman, to be undisputed in two weight classes.

A crowd of about 375 cheered on Shields in her native Flint, Michigan. Shields clearly tried going for the knockout once it was well established that she was the superior boxer and that Dicaire had nothing in return to trouble her, but it never came close to materializing.
