Three-division titlist Claressa Shields will be returning to the ring for the first time in over a year to fight IBF super welterweight champion Marie-Eve Dicaire in a bout to unify the super welterweight division March 5.
The fight will be the headliner of an all-women pay-per-view card on FITE TV, taking place at the Dort Financial Center in Flint, Michigan. The winner will hold the WBC and WBO titles currently held by Shields, the IBF title Dicaire has, and the new WBA (super) belt in the division.

In the 10-round main event of “SUPERWOMEN,’ an historic night of live, all-female pay-per-view boxing (/6 p.m. PT) celebrating women’s sports and dedicated to International Women’s Day 2021, undefeated three-division world champion Claressa Shields will attempt to become the first boxer in the four-belt era to become an undisputed world champion in two weight divisions when she faces unbeaten IBF Super Welterweight Champion Marie-Eve Dicaire in a 154-pound unification bout between the #1 and #2 junior middleweights in the world.

NEWS: Zach Parker Signs With Queensberry And Sets Sights On World Title
With the pandemic taking a serious bite out of the sport in 2020, ‘SUPERWOMEN’ will demonstrate and celebrate the power and empowerment of women in combat sports for 2021 and beyond by providing an entire evening of fights featuring some of the best female boxers in the world. Appropriately, the event is dedicated to this year’s International Women’s day (Monday, March 8, 2021) and its theme of #ChooseToChallenge, that looks to call out gender bias and inequity and celebrate women’s achievements.
The most accomplished amateur boxer in U.S. history, 25-year-old Shields (10-0, 2 KOs) is the first American boxer – male or female – to win two consecutive Olympic Gold Medals. She turned professional following the 2016 Olympics and headlined the first women’s boxing main event in premium cable television history in just her second professional fight in 2017.
