The greatest female boxer in the world wants a piece of the greatest female UFC fighter in the world … with Claressa Shields guaranteeing she’d KNOCK OUT Amanda Nunes!!!
“If we were to fight, I would win,” Shields told TMZ Sports bluntly … “In boxing, yeah, Amanda Nunes would go to sleep.”
24-year-old Shields is a MONSTER in the ring — she’s 9-0 and the undisputed women’s middleweight champion of the world! BEAST!!
Of course, Nunes ain’t no punk — she’s widely considered the greatest female MMA fighter EVER … after smashing everyone from Ronda Rousey to Cris Cyborg and Holly Holm.
Sheilds says Nunes would obviously have the advantage if they stepped into the Octagon, but in a pure fistfight … oh man, Sheilds says Nunes wouldn’t stand a chance!
So, could it happen?
Don’t rule it out … Nunes prides herself on her striking ability and we’ve seen MMA fighters jump into the boxing ring before (McGregor vs. Mayweather anyone!?).
In the meantime, Claressa says she REALLY wants a crack at welterweight champ Cecilia Braekhus, a 35-0 superstar who hails from Norway.
Shields says she’s been trying to set up the fight but Cecilia won’t return her calls — explaining, “Nobody wants a piece of me.”
