Claressa Shields’ Betting Outlook vs Cornejo

Shields was initially supposed to rematch Hanna Gabriels this weekend but a positive VADA test removed her from contention here.

Many see Shields as the top woman pound for pound in the sport today but especially with the recent context of Katie Taylor‘s loss, the GWOAT could very much assert her perceived top status in the spot here.

This marks the first defense of her undisputed champion status after Shields secured this status last time out.

The stand-out pugilist will also have the partisan support of the crowd as the Michigan native looks to continue growing her already impressive resume.

Shields is a three-division world champion and has a pair of Olympic gold medals to her credit.

She looks to continue her streak of testing herself against the very best when she steps into the ring with Cornejo in the coming days.

Maricela Cornejo’s Betting Outlook vs Shields

Cornejo is riding a three-fight winning streak into this title bid and following her first-round stoppage last time out, has asserted herself as number one in the division.

She is a former three-time world title challenger with a pair of title bids at super middleweight and aims to actualize her 160-pound championship goals into reality on this fourth attempt at gold.

Both have their attributes here with Cornejo having height/ reach advantages as well as more professional experience.

But Shields has the obvious edges in terms of the quality of her resume and combat cache being that many see her as the best women’s boxer of today and perhaps ever.

Claressa Shields vs Maricela Cornejo Prediction

This contest is scheduled for ten rounds and I do think this one encroaches to that final bell.

As much as Shields has talked in recent interviews about her desire to notch more knockouts to galvanize her resume even more, her track record indicates this isn’t super likely for this weekend.

I foresee value in seeking out prop bets on this fight going the distance as well as Shields winning via decision.

Pick: Claressa Shields (-5000)
