Claressa Shields and Marie-Eve Dicaire are set to fight Friday evening to become the undisputed junior middleweight champion. The fight heads up the first ever all-woman’s PPV main card in what is already a historic match.
Shields, the self-proclaimed “Greatest Woman of All Time,” has a lot on the line with this fight, as a win will make her the first boxer — man or woman — to ever be an undisputed champion in two different weight divisions. She is 10-0 and the fastest person to win titles in three weight classes (based on total number of fights). Dicaire is 17-0 and looking to make a name for herself against arguably the best pound-for-pound woman boxer in the world.
Coverage of the main card is set to start at 9:00 p.m. ET and ring walks for the main event are expected at approximately 11:30 p.m. That will depend on the length of the undercard.
The fight is available via PPV on cable outlets, and will also be streamed on FITE.tv. The card will cost $29.99.
