When Flint’s Claressa Shields can into the studio she told us she was taking her fighting to another level.  She proved those words to be true as she won the gold medal at the Pan American Olympic Festival in the middleweight division.  

Shields, 19 years old, defeated Yenebier Guillen from the Dominican Republic on Sunday July 20th.  This was the second victory for the Flint native over Guillen this year.  The first fight between the two women boxers was in Puerto Rico.

The Pan American Olympic Festival houses 23 sports for 3500 athletes to compete in throughout Mexico.

Lately, Claressa has trained with the legendary Leon Lawson Jr., the grandfather of Anthony and Andre Dirrell.  The accomplishments that Shields has made in the sport of boxing deserves more attention.  Young women should really take notice to her because her outside of the ring story is inspiring.

Keep making us proud!
