Claressa Shields has all the confidence in the world against Natasha Jonas

Jonas was asked about how she foresees her potential fight against Shields. To which she stated, You know everyone talks about and whatever, whatever, but you know, she’s got to come down to 154. She is fast. Is she faster than Katie? I don’t believe so and just I think it’s time. I’m confident I’m active, which I’ve always said would be dangerous. I have got nothing to lose, and that’s a dangerous fighter.”

That was a fairly respectable and analytical response from her end. But the same was not reciprocated by Shields.

All I care about is the signed contract @TashaJonas! Let’s fight cause I’m gonna end ya Barbie doll!!! And yes I’M NOT KATIE!”


Shields was indeed not intimidated by her. Rather, she is as confident as she can be. Though the sport is unpredictable and only time will tell who will be the victor in this fascinating match.
