Claressa Shields To Make UK Debut In Feburary, Defend Title

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.
