Claressa Shields will return to the ring for the first time since beating Savannah Marshall as she takes on Maricela Cornejo this weekend.
The GWOAT managed to beat their great rival in London to win the WBA, IBF, WBC and WBO middleweight titles, and they will put them all on the line.
The 28-year-old is still unbeaten in her professional career and will be confident seeing Cornejo before setting up a rematch against Marshall.
Shields was scheduled to face Hanna Gabriels but she was removed from the card due to VADA test results.
1 ranked contender ‘La Diva’ Cornejo has stepped in and will be looking to create a shock.
