Two-time Olympic Gold Medalist and Flint-native Claressa Shields, in her professional television debut, will be stepping into the ring with Hungary’s Szilvia “Sunset” Szabados for the first women’s boxing match to headline on premium television. The six-round women’s bout will be broadcast live from MGM Grand Detroit on SHOWTIME’s Shobox: The Next Generation. Shields (1-0) is the only American boxer, male or female, to capture back-to-back gold medals at the Olympic Games, making her one of the most accomplished boxers in U.S. history. Szabados (15-8, 6 KOs) is a former world title challenger.
