Dream it and achieve it. With the confidence that marks that imposing presence, that overwhelming look, the young girl who came out of the suburbs, became a legend. Claressa Shields dominated from start to finish the bout against Marie Eve Dicaire on Friday night in Michigan, USA, and consecrated herself once again as a four-time champion with the bonus of the vacant World Boxing Association 154-pound Super Championship.
With an unusual entrance, marked by the show, Shields made her way to the ring with a glamour out of the ordinary: a very feminine wig, a long tunic down to her feet, the show of two ladies performing contortions, marking a culture, honoring her compatriot and admired basketball player Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna, who died in an accident.
Shields, who has decided to call herself “The Gwoat” (Greatest Woman Of All Time), shows wherever she performs, her passion for feeling that when she steps into the ring she does it for all women, and this was undoubtedly a special occasion in the International Women’s Day.
The fight began without detours, the analysis was no longer necessary, and the call to action was immediate. The Canadian boxer Dicaire was determined and confident despite standing in front of an athlete who has already achieved everything that can be achieved in boxing: double gold Olympic medalist, world champion in three divisions, holding the four main titles in two of them. What will be ahead for this great boxer? Now she will begin her journey to maintain her status.
The overall report of the fight ends with Shields’ complete supremacy against a Dicaire who, beyond having had her undefeated record broken, returns proud of having stood up as a worthy rival.
The Gwoat or T-Rex, as she was known worldwide for a long time, is the new World Boxing Association Super Welterweight Super Champion and undisputed queen of all belts in two divisions.
