Vanessa Lepage Joanisse: Who Is Claressa Shields’ Next Opponent

Vanessa Lepage Joanisse

Vanessa Lepage Joanisse has been confirmed in a huge fight for Claressa Shields but not much is known about the female boxer.

First off, Vanessa Lepage Joanisse is a former women’s heavyweight champion of the world.

Shields as a middleweight will be taking on someone maybe a little naturally stronger.

Almost like the Roy Jones move up to heavyweight to box John Ruiz years ago except of women’s boxing.

Is what Shields is attempting.

Shields clarified here though on X that the fight will be at light-heavyweight.

Vanessa Lepage Joanisse is a 28-year-old boxing out of Canada.

Her record is 7-1-2 KO.

She’s boxed as a pro mostly in Canada and Mexico.

She is not that tall at 5’6 so its not a dramatic a thing most think when fighting Shields.

Shields is actually taller on paper so not much between them physically.

Shields both amateur and pro has boxed at a much higher level too.
