Undefeated Posted April 12, 2019 Share Posted April 12, 2019 (edited) So, less than 48 hours to go now before the first bell in this Showtime main event, forget Quillin vs Truax or Loma vs Crolla, this is the fight of the weekend right here. Live on Showtime in the USA and Box Nation in the UK, two-time Olympic Gold medallist and reigning WBC, WBA and IBF world middleweight champion Claressa 'T-Rex' Shields will put her undefeated record on the line against undefeated WBO world middleweight champion Christina Hammer aka 'Lady Hammer' in a winner takes all grudge match. I had previously commended Showtime for their promotion of this fight with two All Access programmes and airing the contest on prime time Saturday TV on their main channel, all of that is fantastic for the sport but there was a final presser yesterday (staged in what looked like some kind of pub or something with a cheap backdrop) and Showtime don't appear to have made this footage available, also, there's nothing scheduled to screen the live weigh-in as far as I can see, that should be taking place later today but we might not get to see it live. Anyway, besides the promotion dropping off towards the end I am interested to learn if anyone else is excited about this fight and what your predictions are and will you be tuned in Saturday night/Sunday morning?
