ShoBox - Shields vs Nelson: Live streaming results and round by round coverage

Claressa Shields defends her 168-pound titles tonight against Tori Nelson on Showtime.

Tonight at 10 pm ET from Turning Stone Casino in Verona, New York, Showtime kicks off 2018 in boxing with a tripleheader edition of ShoBox: The New Generation, featuring the return of Claressa Shields in the main event.

Shields (4-0, 2 KO) has dominated thus far as a professional, not unexpected after she did the same at London 2012 and Rio 2016 to win a pair of gold medals. The Flint, Michigan, native has picked up the WBC and IBF super middleweight titles already. Tonight, she faces veteran Tori Nelson (17-0-3, 2 KO), a 41-year-old fighter from Virginia and a clear underdog.

Also on the card, super bantamweights Jesse Hernandez (10-1, 7 KO) and Ernesto Garza III (9-2, 5 KO) will square off in a 10-round bout, and the show will open in the junior welterweight division, with Shohjahon Ergashev (10-0, 10 KO) taking on Sonny Fredrickson (18-0, 12 KO) in an eight-round fight.

The show was also supposed to feature the U.S. boxing debut of Christina Hammer, which has been canceled due to visa issues.
