Claressa Shields says she could beat top male boxers

Shields name-drops Keith Thurman, Shawn Porter, and Gennady Golovkin as male fighters she could hang with.

If it was at all possible, it appears that Claressa Shield’s undisputed title unification has taken her confidence through the stratosphere. In a conversation with TMZ, Shields calls for a fight against Cecilia Braekhus before going on a short rant about how she can put the beats on some of her top male counterparts.

“I spar with men,” Shields said. “And, I mean, I drop men. I bust men nose, I beat men up all the time.

“If I was to say which is the guy, I think I could beat — I think I could beat up Keith Thurman. I really do. I think I could beat up Keith Thurman, even though they’re like ‘oh, he beat Shawn Porter.’ I think I can beat Shawn Porter too, you know, skill-wise and just strength-wise. I think they may be stronger than me but their boxing ability isn’t like mine.”

Then Shields took it up a couple of weight classes...

“GGG, he’s older now, but I could give GGG a run for his money.”

The middleweight champion would continue by giving her reasoning behind her bold proclamations.

“You know what? Power for power isn’t a question because what is boxing? Boxing’s the sweet science. It’s not about strength. It’s not about strength because people were saying Christina Hammer was stronger than me...but did you not see the head movement that I had during the fight? See the defense, the offense, the traps I set?

“If I was to get in with a man I would do a lot more of that, and I do have some power. I do have some power. I’m not gonna say I’m stronger than them but if I set up the right shot, with the right timing...”
She is undisputed and undefeated female boxing champion at 160 pounds.

I saw her fight where she humiliated and outclassed another undefeated female boxer Christina Hammer who was bigger than her:

She then started taunting the male boxers that she could beat them up.

Do you think she would be able to do it??

I found this video of her sparring with a low level male pro

I think she could beat up Paulie Malignaggi at this point!

Do you think she could beat Conor McGregor in a boxing match?

I love when female athletes taunt men from their sport

I would certainly like to see a full on bout between her and one of the male boxers he mentioned, but it will never happen. It's good food for thought ,though.

Wow, her head movement is incredible. I don't feel like she got touched in that highlights clip.

Keith Thurman is undefeated and is fighting manny pacquiao next for millions of dollars .
29 fights 22kos! in the stacked welterweight division .

people say anything for attention , it's easy to call out someone you will never fight .
Claressa Shields has a total of a whooping 9 fights with 2kos ! she became wbc and ibf super middleweight champion after 4 fights !she became undisputed female middle weight champ with only 9 fights ! The truth , women's boxing divisions is just very shallow .You can't compare it to the very deep pool of the men's divisions.
to put things in perspective for you , there's only 25 professional middle weight female boxers in the world ! 25 ! men's welterweight division (Keith Thurman's division) 1,750 boxers.

Even if it's just blustery bullshit, I love it. Boxing isn't like the UFC or other MMA promotions. In boxing, you - the individual athlete - have to do what it takes to sell interest in your fights. So, as a woman trying to boost her earnings, calling out guys will get a few of us talking about her, which may sell a few extra tickets or PPVs next time out.

I would have no interest, no.

I think she could beat 95% of the guys in her weight class here and maybe even 80% or more of the guys in her weight class on the street (just numbers I pulled out of my head), but based on the eyeball test - and I'm speaking as a guy who has watched boxing, but who does not "know" boxing - I don't think her hand speed and feet are on par with professional male fighters.

I don't want to see her in a match against a male boxer, but I'd love to hear a pro or boxing analyst break down such a fight.

Lucia Rijker was the best woman boxer in the world and she took on a guy in Thailand I think. She lost. She had the skill but not the power. You can find the video on YouTube sometimes.

Props to Claressa Shields and I'm sure she could beat a lot of guys, but I'd bet money that she can't beat actively training male boxers in her weight class. It'd be a nice story if she could and I'd 100% root for her, but the realist in my says no chance.

I'm inclined to agree. But if she wants to make these statements and believes them and wants to fight men, I say let her. I wouldn't like to see her fight a big name straight away, but a journeyman, sure.

Ann Wolfe had a fight lined up against a male Boxer in the mid-00s, but it never happened due to the complications from hurricane Katrina.

She should fight Paulie Malignaggi or Artem Lobov (boxing rules).
