Claressa Shields ended Tori Nelson’s unbeaten record
Claressa Shields has retained her WBC and IBF super-middleweight world titles, securing a unanimous 10-round points decision over fellow American Tori Nelson in New York.
All three judges scored the fight 100-90 for Shields, the 22-year-old two-time Olympic champion.
The result handed Nelson, who is a former world middleweight champion, her first professional defeat.
Nelson, 41, had only fought twice during the past 30 months and despite a strong start to the bout at the Turning Stone Casino, faded during the later rounds as the younger boxer took control.
Friday’s clash will be featured in Tuesday’s Sportswomen programme on Sky Sports News, and will also be available on demand from Monday.
