World boxing champion Claressa Shields returns to the ring in February for her United Kingdom debut live on PPV.
Claressa Shields returns to the boxing ring in February.
Shields will make her United Kingdom debut on February 5 when she puts her WBC, WBA and IBF middleweight titles on the line.
The “G.W.O.A.T” will face Ema Kozin in the co-main event. The headline fight features Chris Eubank Jr. and Liam Williams.
“I’m eager to get back in the ring and I can’t wait to return to boxing on February 5 in the U.K.,” said Shields, who is training in her hometown of Flint, Michigan with her coach John David Jackson. “We’ve been pushing through the delays so that I’m 100% ready to display my skills against Ema Kozin. I’m going to give her a beating that’s going to make Savannah Marshall regret agreeing to face me. This is going to be a performance you’re not going to want to miss.”
Shields stepped away from boxing and competed for the PFL in mixed martial arts bouts in 2021. The 26-year-old earned a March win over Marie-Eve Dicaire to make history, becoming the first boxer in the four-belt era to be an undisputed champion in two divisions.
The upcoming February event will air live on pay-per-view in the United States through inDEMAND, FITE TV and more.
