Prediction,

I love this match up, I think women's boxing needs more fights like this.

I'm a massive Claressa Shields fan, well who isn't?, she's awesome!, she's got a great story, alarming, quite scary really, but interesting to hear, she has had very tough times, she's come through them, and now she is in her early twenties, and has won two Olympic gold medals, being the first American to do that, male or female, that is outstanding! Shields's professional career has gone well so far, she's 3-0, with a stoppage. Claressa Shields is very young, and in the pro game, however promising her career looks, however great her amateur career was, she is still inexperienced, but there is no rush in terms of making big steps up in competition, she did win the Silver Title, but I think it is good for young fighters to use their time wisely, and raise there level of opposition consistently, but gradually. I'm sure Claressa can't wait to start competing in big meaningful fight and make her mark in the pro ranks, but I think she should be patient, take her time, gain experience, learn, mature, first, but obviously, if she is offered a big opportunity, even if it was her pro debut, she would grab the chance with both hands, like all fighters, and she will try her best, it will be very interesting to see her box in this fight, I think it is much too soon, but I think she will still, to say the very least, enhance her reputation, make a great account of herself.

I know almost nothing about Nikki Adler, I have never seen her fight, I know she is a world champion, she is German, she is 30, she's 16-0, I believe she's stopped about half her opponents. I think it is unfair to female athletes that world champions such as Adler aren't well known, because women, they can be tough, they can dig deep, just like men, they have a disadvantage, but if anything, in my opinion, that means that female boxers, at this level, deserve more admiration. I think this is the perfect fight for Nikki Adler at this stage of her career, like any world champion, waxnts to be globally recognised as a great fighter, she is 30, so she is in her prime, but she also doesn't have bags of time before she isn't, so it is a great time for her to have her chance to shine, fighting in the US, competing against a name like Claressa Shields, and fighting her at such a time, when she hasn't really had a chance to learn yet, not in the pro game anyway, so the timing of this fight suits Adler down to the ground. It is impossible for me to formally answer opinion on Adler beyond the rough opinion you can have based on looking at a fighter's record, so I have no idea how good a fighter I believe she is, she could be great, she could be decent, it will be very interesting to see how good a world champion Nikki Adler is.

I think Nikki Adler will win this fight, and win it comfortably, I think Claressa Shields has the potential to become the best female boxer in the world, but at 3-0, she is very inexperienced at this level. People might think Shields's amateur experience will help her a great deal in this fight, it will help her, but, you can have as great an amateur career as you want, nothing beats professional experience, we learned this from Vasyl Lomachenko, when he fought Orlando Salido for a world title, he was 1-0, his amateur record was 396-1, his amateur career was extraordinary, and now, well with only 10 fights, many believe he is number one in the world, it is hard to exclude him from the top 5, he certainly, makes my top 5, whilst Salido, lost a very wide technical decision to Mikey Garcia, he was dropped, dominated in that fight, I believe he has drawn with Francisco Vargas, Roman Martinez, so Salido, now, I think would struggle to win 2 rounds against Lomachenko, I wouldn't be surprised if the Ukrainian stopped him, but of course, due to Lomachenko's lack of professional boxing experience, Salido beat him, a split decision, but a win is a win.

I think Claressa will start well, maybe even edging out the first two rounds, I think, early, Shields might be able to out hustle, out work the champion, I think Adler will be cautious, she'll be happy to let Shields do most of the work, and I think she will focus more on trying to take most of the punches on the gloves and arms rather than going to lengths to get the better of Claressa offensively, I think even at this point, she will catch Shields on the counter, land the cleaner shots, and there will be a maximum of one round which is clearly Shields's, but I think Shields will be busier at this point, and appear the stronger of the two. I think in rounds 4 and 5, Adler will begin to out box Shields, her experience will start to show, I think Adler will be comfortable, and Shields will be getting frustrated, and she'll be working harder. Shields hasn't had the chance to get the rounds in the bank, so I wonder about her stamina, I think she is very disciplined, very well conditioned, so any minor stamina issues which might even not be there, are probably part of a lack of experience, but nevertheless, I think Claressa will be fatigued in the late rounds. I think the pace will increase in rounds 6 and7, Adler will work harder, but still win the rounds, and Shields will have to keep pressing the issue. I think in one of the later rounds, Adler might be slightly more conservative, and there will be desperation in Shields's offence, she won't find a lot of accuracy, but she might do enough to make an argument to possibly take the round, but I think it will take everything out of her. I think Adler will finish strong in the last couple of rounds, winning them decisively, I think she'll be tired too, but she will have more in the tank than Shields and she'll catch her on the counter with some ease at times, I think Sheilds will be hard work for Adler even in rounds 9 and 10, Sheilds is a warrior, and she will have lost only when the final bell has gone, but I think Adler will finish, getting the better of her opponent. I think Nikki Adler will be awarded a wide unanimous decision (98-92, 98-92, 97-93).

I think this will be fantastic for Nikki Adler's career, if the fight goes the way I think it will, then it will build her name, and set up great opportunities for her in the future. Publicly, although she is the champion, there isn't a great deal of pressure on Adler to win this fight, she has a lot to lose, in that she herself will put pressure on herself to win, without any doubt, she surely wants to become more recognised in the boxing world, she has a title, and defeat isn't something she has experienced before as a professional, but reputation wise, I don't think this is a 'must win' fight. I'm ashamed to say that my knowledge of women's boxing is not fantastic, so it is hard for me to list match ups which I think it would be great for Nikki Adler to be involved in, assuming she wins this fight.

Claressa Shields will have no doubt that she can become a world champion on August 4, I think she'll put a pot of pressure on herself to perform, and the wider public, may be expecting her to to win, I think they are, so the pressure is on Claressa here, and I think defeat would be tough, but at the same time, I think she would bounce right back, I think it would do her career a lot of good, this should be great experience for her, and at 22, with the talent, and the promising future she has ahead of her, a defeat to an undefeated world champion is certainly not the end of the world, but at this current time, she has a fair bit to lose, and the pressure is on her, there is probably more pressure on her than there should be. Shields does have a massive amount to gain from this fight, a world title, in her fourth fight, on top of her amateur glory, what an achievement that would be, then again, the win could prematurely open doors for her and push her into fights she is not ready for, so there is some positivity which she could take from defeat here. Whether she's wins or loses here, I believe that in a few years time, Claressa Shields will be the best female boxer who has ever lived, I think she become a world champion, be involved in massive fights, win them, and stay world champion for a very long time.

Come on Claressa, sexists are idiots, but do they deserve to be embarrassed like this?!!
Wow! What a performance from Claressa Shields! I knew she had the talent to do this, but I didn't think she would be able to display such fluency at this level, dominate to win a world title at this early stage, she's 22, 4-0! Just think how good she will be in 5 years time!
Nikki Adler seems like a nice lady, she deserves a lot of credit as a former world champion, and a boxer who tried her best in this fight, but I think I might have overestimated her a little bit before this fight, but let's still praise Claressa for this fantastic victory!

I don't know why Claressa Shields isn't more talked about, female boxing is always going to be something which many boxing fans don't like to watch, I myself, hate to see women getting hurt, but some of these women are just as tough as us guys, it isn't that they can't take the gruelling punishment of this sport, it is that it upsets us guys to see women competing in rough sports, but if they are as safe as the guys, can take it just like guys can, then for female boxing, us not wanting to watch it for the reason I just explained, that is our problem, not theirs. Whether we watch a lot of women's boxing or not, let's be fair, Shields has made history, first American boxer Male or Female to win two Olympic gold medals, that is some achievement!
