This fight between Claressa Shields and Franchon Crews isn’t a gimme for the two-time Olympic gold medalist (Shields). That’s a high profile professional card; you never know how a fighter will adjust to the bright lights and the anxiety of such an event. Plus, Crews isn’t just an opponent, she’s a legitimate fighter.

The UFC does women’s combats sports right in that the female battlers fight the same number of rounds and minutes as the males. Perhaps that’s why they are accepted by UFC fans and female boxing is still wallowing on the back end of cards. Many female boxing champions are punching for peanuts.
