Claressa Shields made her dreams come true after becoming undisputed champion in her last outing, but she’s not looking to pack it up just yet. Instead Shields has her eyes on a fight against Natasha Jonas, in a fight that would be a pretty big event in the U.K.
Sheilds’ promoter, Dmitry Salitas, says their team is all in on that fight and are currently awaiting a response from Jonas’ team to see if they can start putting everything together.
“We love the fight,” Salita told Sky Sports. “The ball is in Natasha’s court I know she talked about wanting to fight Claressa but has not stepped up to the plate to accept it after receiving an offer.”
Salita continued by saying Shields would be more than happy to go on the road and fight Jonas in her home country of the U.K., as they love the enthusiasm and general boxing culture in the country.
Jonas is most recently coming off a unanimous decision win over Marie Eve Dicaire last November and doesn’t currently have anything scheduled. We’ll keep you posted to see if a fight between Shields and Jonas gains any traction.
