Olympic boxing champion Claressa Shields defeats Tori Nelson

Pre-Fight Videos: Claressa Shields vs. Tori Nelson - Christina Hammer Talks about fighting Shields

Shields dominated every minute of every round, but left a strangely unsatisfying feeling when she was unable to stop the outgunned Nelson.

While not inept by any means, she simply couldn't match Shields for speed, accuracy, power, endurance and pure skill.

Now not to dwell on the negative, the fight could be a major learning experience for Shields, but for a fight that essentially started the televised season of boxing in 2018, I might have unreasonable expectations, but I hold Shields to the standards of the all-time greats and she didn't quite meet those tonight. "But she was definitely tough and fought a good fight". She's also the only American boxer to ever win two consecutive gold medals at the Olympics.

Shields continued to land against Nelson during the sixth round, but couldn't hurt her older, slower opponent.

Trump, asked Wednesday about his comments, said that any immigration deal "has got to include the wall". Neither senator would comment on the meeting's objective .

Until facing Nelson, Shields had never gone more than eight rounds. She did her game plan but I just did more.

Shields snapped back Nelson's head with a left hook late in the second round. She expected an aggressive Nelson to attack her, but both boxers fought tactically during the first round.

"As far as fighting me, I think she's pretty scared, to be honest", Shields said.

Hammer (22-0, 10 KOs) said she couldn't wait to make her USA debut. She was supposed to have fought today, on the undercard. The Flint, Michigan, native wants to challenge WBC/WBO middleweight champ Christina Hammer in the fight after that. "She's more anxious about me than I am her", Shields said after her win. So I stopped trying to go in because I didn't want to get head-butted and get cut.
