We’re excited to know that Flint’s Claressa Shields has finally landed a Canadian opponent for the first home fight. We’re still proud of her Olympic accomplishments and can’t wait to see her perform in person.

Claressa Shields will take on Allison ‘Kangroo’ Grey on August 8th at Kettering University’s Recreation Center.  The evening will pay homage to past Olympic fighters from Flint.  With 12 amateur fights on the bill, honor will be given to Shields, Chris Byrd, and Andre Dirrell who all took home medals.

Shields expressed her thoughts on why it has become difficult to find opponents especially for this event, according to MLive,

“It’s always been that way, so it’s nothing new to me,” Shields added. “If I was a girl that had to fight against myself I would be kind of timid, too. But with me being who I am I would get in there and box myself but the other girls don’t have what I have.”

I can’t wait to join in with everyone from Flint to witness history in the making.  Claressa should handle her opponent fairly well on August 8th.  With so much negative press and attention to crime in my beloved city, events like this bring hope.
