Clarissa Shields took out her best tools to defend her WBA middleweight crown and beat Hannah Rankin by unanimous decision. The match, which took place at the Kansas Star Arena in Mulvane, United States, marked a complete domain for the US champion, who retained her belt for the first time.

Three 100-90 cards showed the superiority of Shields, who beat the Scot in all aspects thanks to his hand speed and aggressiveness. Shields has highlighted in recent months as one of the best fighters in the world pound for pound and has overcome all the challenges that have been placed in front.

The former Olympic champion owns three world strips at 160 pounds, including the WBA. Although Rankin fought with a lot of heart and tried to change the story during the whole confrontation, the monarch did not allow him to impose his style and blocked him from any possibility of making his fight plan.

Now, Shields has a record of 7 wins, no losses and 2 knockouts, while Rankin reduced his balance to 5 wins, 3 setbacks and 1 knockout.
