The undisputed middleweight champion defends her belts against Costa Rica's Hanna Gabriels, who drops back in weight - she is the WBA light heavyweight and WBC heavyweight world champion.

The pair met in this weight class back in 2018 and Shields ran out a comfortable winner on the judges scorecards (96-93, 97-92 and 96-93). 

Shields is a highly decorated fighter who is the only boxer in history (male or female) to dominate two different weight classes simultaneously and hold all four belts - WBC, WBA, IBF and WBO.

The American has knocked out two of her opponents, but her last nine bouts have all gone to the judges' scorecards. 

Her last stoppage win was a fifth round technical knockout of Nikki Adler back in 2017. 

A slick and orthodox technician, Shields fought twice in 2022 but only once in each of the three years prior.

Gabriels has only fought three times since her defeat to Shields, with her most recent bout in 2021 only lasting two rounds.
