Claressa Shields retains titles with 10-round unanimous decision against Tori Nelson

Claressa Shields dominates

WBC/IBF female super middleweight champion Claressa Shields retained her world titles with a one-sided ten round unanimous nod over Tori Nelson on Friday night at the Turning Stone Resort in Verona, NY.

Shields, 22, defeated an unbeaten opponent with at least four times as much professional experience for a second straight bout.

Nelson took the fight to the champion seeking a late knockout in the final round. Shields got full extension on a right hand to Nelson's jaw in that sequence, but Nelson took it well.

Clifford Davis, a civil rights attorney, was to be the grand marshal in the Arlington parade, billed as "the largest Dr. If the organizers tried to have the event anyway, they wouldn't have bathrooms or seating, he said.

Nelson displayed toughness throughout the bout, but little in terms of skill as a patient, poised Shields picked her apart to the head and body. In the third, Shields voluntarily backed into a neutral corner, luring Nelson in for counters and in turn avoiding everything Nelson threw with deft bobbing and weaving. Even more troubling, it appeared in the later half of the fight Shields had become exhausted. Nelson for her part was game if not effective. Shields will look to use her combination of speed and power in this matchup. The 41-year-old Nelson (17-1-3, 1 KO), who won a middleweight world title in 2011 but had only fought twice since June 2015, lost for the first time in her career. The Flint, Michigan, native wants to challenge WBC/WBO middleweight champ Christina Hammer in the fight after that.

Crutchfield said he thought Nelson was ready to quit but instead the challenger responded with perhaps her best round of the fight before getting staggered by Shields just before the bell. "She definitely did what I thought she was going to do, be aggressive, try to pin me against the ropes".
