The three-division world boxing champion Claressa Shields is getting back into the cage before the end of 2021.
She is fresh off a successful professional MMA debut where she defeated Brittney Elkin via third-round TKO in the PFL 4 headliner on June 10. Elkin controlled the fight on the ground, but “T-Rex” finished Elkin with punches from her knees after stuffing a takedown attempt.

She is currently training with talent like the former UFC light-heavyweight champion JonJones at Jackson Wink in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The former Olympic gold medalist in boxing is perfect at 11-0 as a professional. She is the first-ever two-division boxing champ during the four-belt era.
Shields plans to return to boxing at the end of 2021.
