Claressa Shields wants your money.

She wants more than your money, of course. She wants your titles. You, in this case, being any women’s boxer weighing between 154 and 168 pounds. Marie-Eve Dicaire, the undefeated Canadian, has one, which Shields will attempt to relieve her of when the two square off in Shields’s hometown of Flint, Mich., on Friday.

She wants a legacy. No fighter, male or female, has been the undisputed champion in two weight divisions in the four-belt era. Shields, a former undisputed champ at 160 pounds, would be the first.
