"This chick to me is a clown" -Claressa Shields on possible future foe Christina Hammer
After exchanging words in the ring immediately following her win over Nikki Adler on Friday, the verbal punches are continuing for Claressa Shields and Christina Hammer.
In the ring, Hammer (21-0, 9 KO), the WBO and WBC Middleweight champion, told Shields, "You are not as good as me." With that, Shields implored her to change from her dress into boxing gear.
Shields continued that attitude on Friday, saying Hammer won't fight her until next year because, "She knows for sure she needs time to get ready."
Shields is a two-time Olympic Gold Medalist and holds the WBC and IBF Super Middleweight world titles.
