It’s been some time since fans heard any ring news from Claressa Shields. In her last fight, she fought Maricela Cornejo for the first title defense on June 3. She hasn’t returned to the ring yet. However, fans did learn about her entering a new multi-year deal with the Professional Fighters League (PFL). So per the rumor mills, she could mark a return through the octagon next year. However, the undisputed middleweight champion ensures that she stays in touch with her fans through her out-of-the-ring reports.

Early today, she reached out to the followers on Instagram, informing them about the new video game that has him fighting opponents in the ring! She said, “Can’t have an undisputed boxing game without 3x Undisputed champ! Yes, The GWOAT Claressa Shields is in the @undisputed_sci- Playable today, 12/7/23, on PC.” Already, over 15,000 people have given their likes since the time she messaged. Scores of fans couldn’t suppress their happiness and poured their hearts out in the comments.

They need this lady on all platforms.” Then, not particularly a fan of video games, this fan highlighted that for the two-time Olympic gold medalist, he would make an exception: “Oooookay, Champ… I don’t particularly like PC games, but for you!!!! I’m playing this!!!!

Calling the undisputed champion’s game groundbreaking, this fan said that she truly deserves all the admiration: “That is groundbreaking; you’re a GANGSTA for this. Much Respect.” Then finally, this follower highlighted how, just like in real life, Shields looks sharp in the video game. Her strikes are incredibly precise and executed with precision. The follower said, “This game got you on here looking crisp; your strikes are super sharp and well performed, just like real life!

A return, but where?

It is interesting to note that soon after Claressa Shield’s move, archrival Savannah Marshall followed suit and joined the PFL. The two met last year on October 15 in London’s O2 Arena to settle the middleweight disagreement. The American boxer won the bout unanimously, becoming the undisputed champion. Later, the ‘Silent Assassin’s celebrated a victory over Franchón Crews-Dezurn for the super middleweight’s undisputed title. However, to fans’ utter surprise, Shields barged into the post-fight conference, calling out the archrival. Thus, there is a high possibility that the much-vaunted rematch between the two boxers could as well be a mixed martial arts fight.
