Prediction,

Awesome match up!
I love Claressa Sheilds, not just because I think she's hot, but because I think she is very admirable, and she is a special fighter who is really doing well at the moment!
I have never seen Hanna Gabriels fight, but she will have to be some fighter to beat Claressa Sheilds!

This is an interesting fight, Shields is much bigger than Gabriels, she is a two belt world champion at 168, and Gabriels is a two belt world champion at 154, it is interesting that they have met halfway, made the fight at 160, for two vacant world titles, it is a very interesting fight, and it is great that really good fighters can fight each other.

In terms of who the weight benefits, you would say maybe the bigger fighter, so Shields, but making weight and rehydrating is important, it is not easy when you have to work your way down to a weight, if she is drained, she has a problem, but I think Shields is a really disciplined professional, she'll make the weight, and she'll be prepared. If Claressa makes the weight and and is ok come fight time, she has the weight advantage here, she is stronger than Gabriels, Gabriels hasn't fought above 155 since her first fight, and that was in 2007 (she started at 161), she fought at 147 in 2009, so really she isn't a middleweight. Sheilds has made 160 once before, she fought above 168 in her other fights, but I think she can make 160 and do well, again.

Gabriels has much more experience than Shields, she has had 20 fights, Sheilds has still only had 5. Gabriels is an experienced fighter, she has had 11 world title fights, won 10 of them, she is a two weight world champion, but she is moving up in weight in this fight, and she is 35 years old, much the older woman, Shields, 23, not in her prime yet, still learning, but she has the age advantage for sure.

Sheilds must be the favourite, I think this whole night of boxing is just awesome, 2 fights, all 4 160lb belts on the line, winners fight with two belts each, winner of that is THE female middleweight world champion, and Hammer vs Sheilds seems like the big fight everyone is hoping happens, could be the biggest fight in women's boxing, but I'm sure Sheilds will not overlook Gabriels, and if she did, it would be some mistake, because Gabriels has plenty of experience, and she has achieved a lot in the sport, so she is definitely a good fighter.

I think Claressa wins this, I think this will be the toughest fight of her career so far, she might struggle for a few rounds against a veteran world level opponent, but I think she will take over down the stretch, it wouldn't surprise me if she got the stoppage, might go the distance, but no I think Sheilds might stop her, late. This is a good test for Shields, her skill and mentality will be tested, I believe she will succeed, and also learn a lot from this fight, gain valuable experience.

Hey Champ, mind adding the the Solomov/Howard fight for me to score tonight?

Good performance from Claressa Sheilds, she struggled, she learned the hard way, getting knocked down, having to dig deep through a gruelling 10 round fight, and fighting an opponent who was able to exploit her inexperience, a world level opponent who punished her for making mistakes. Gabriels one tough, brave woman!, she did very well at the start, doing what an experienced, good world level fighter does against a less experienced, maybe more talented, but very ambitious opponent, when the younger opponent slips up, makes the mistake, that is what really good fighters do, they exploit it, know how to make the most of the opening in that one second, that was a bit like Linares dropping Lomachenko.

I think Shields will be the best female boxer in history in a few years!, but, she is 23, 6-0, she has a lot to learn, and at this current time, she is not ready for Christina Hammer!, Claressa doesn't like her, she must feel she can beat her and beat her good, but it is the responsibility of Shields's advisor, John David Jackson, whoever else she has around her, it is down to them, to keep Claressa away from Hammer until she has at least 4 more fights, and 4 more technically difficult, at least fairly physically hard fights. I think in 2 years time, Shields would win against Hammer, because Hammer would decline?, no, Hammer is 27, she will probably even slightly better if anything in a couple of years, but Claressa I think has such great potential, that if she just gets that crucial bit of experience she needs, she can improve at warp speed over the next couple of years, and at her best, she will be extremely close to unbeatable. Although I hope it doesn't happen just yet, Hammer vs Shields is obviously not an outright bad idea, it might be the best potential fight in women's boxing already, and if it does happen next, what a fight, what a win that could be for Hammer, and Sheilds, even in defeat, would learn so much, even a loss, could be the making of her in the long run, could make her a much better fighter, and unbeaten record isn't the be all and end all of a boxing legend. Also, afterall, there is always a chance of course that I'm wrong, and Sheilds does already have the better of Hammer.

I, too, think if she fights Hammer next, Hammer beats her. Too early, and the range and jab of Hammer would give her trouble all night, and her ability to combo out of those long jabs is pretty impressive as well. Shields is still raw, and if Gabriels had been a bit more dynamic, I think she would have beat Shields.

Champion97's picture

What do mean by dynamic? I don't think she was close to beating Claressa, even though she did well, better than I thought, the cards were a bit wide in my opinion, I didn't think she would go 10, I definitely didn't see her winning 3 rounds (on my unofficial card), and scoring a knockdown!

SalTnutZ1's picture

I mean, had a better ability to change angles, and move her around the ring more with footwork, she could have done better work following that good first round knockdown, and may have been able to work a decision. She fought a fine fight, but didn't do enough with making Shields guess and let her lead the action too much, by my estimation at least. Now, that could have been a product of Shields and her work, but I think some of it was Gabriels falling into bad patterns that benefited Shields more. But I agree, Shields won clearly, but with some awfully wide cards. That was a bad common feature of some of the big fights over this past weekend.
