What a win for world champion boxer Claressa Shields today.

Showing her boxing heart to come back from a tough start to her mixed martial arts debut in the opening two rounds.

To then score the knockout and close the show in round 3.

In truth, it set the world of combat sport on fire.

Amazing stuff.

Her post-fight interview has won the internet for the day too:

It will be interesting to see how far she can go and if the big players like the UFC might even sign her if she keeps winning.

If that happens, by the time she comes back to boxing, she will be a huge star and have will helped women’s boxing through this venture.

Shields has said she is going to try to stay active in both sports and at only 26-years-old, she has plenty of time on her hands to do it.

Fair play.
