But Shields will have to defend her titles for the first time against Tori Nelson, a 41-year-old competitor from Ashburn, Virginia.
VERONA, N.Y. Two-time Olympic boxing champion Claressa Shields scored a unanimous 10-round decision over Tori Nelson on Friday night at Turning Stone Casino to retain her women's WBC and IBF super middleweight world titles. She's also the only American boxer to ever win two consecutive gold medals at the Olympics. Shields is now 5-0, 2 KOs while Nelson tastes defeat for the first time at 17-1-3, 2 KOs.
Nelson displayed toughness throughout the bout, but little in terms of skill as a patient, poised Shields picked her apart to the head and body.
"I think she's scared to fight me, to be honest", Shields said. "I can't wait to fight her and show her that she isn't (better than me)". "She did her game plan, but I just did more".
But it ended the same way the first four did - with Shields emerging victorious. She won her titles by stopping Nikki Adler (16-1, 9 KOs) in the fifth round of her previous fight, August 4 at MGM Grand Detroit.
Nelson never hurt Shields, who landed 225 of 632 punches to 81 of 400 for Nelson. Shields was clearly faster, stronger and just flat-out better than Nelson. Shields looked to take control in the second, landing lead rights to start two and three punch combos. Even though Nelson is almost 20 years older than Shields, she has one huge advantage in this match: experience.
An assertive Shields went after Nelson to begin the fifth round, but Nelson took her power well.
Until facing Nelson, Shields had never gone more than eight rounds.
