Claressa Shields

Boxer

1.) What is your career highlight so far?

The highlight of my career was when I beat the 3x reigning World Champion Mary Spencer.
 
 
2.) Who were your heroes growing up?
 
My heroes growing up were my grandma and my aunt Tammy.
 
 
3.) What advice do you have for an aspiring boxer?
 
My advice to a boxer is don't be scared to be looked at different. Boxing is time consuming and to be good you MUST make sacrifice and have discipline.
 
 
4.) What are you most looking forward to in the 2012 Olympics in London?
 
The thing I'm most looking forward to in London is August 5th. The first day of my competition. I've been training so hard and I can't wait to have all those women biting their finger nails.
 
 
5.) What is something a casual fan may not know about boxing?
 
A casual fan of boxing wouldn't know that boxers are really hard on themselves. Well the good ones anyway. Our best is never good enough sometimes so we just always work harder.
 
 
6.) What does a typical day look like for you?
 
A typical day is a run in the AM, then I eat, a few hours of rest and then boxing training, then rest again then sparring.
