How to Watch Shields vs Dicaire
Date: Friday, Mar. 5 | Start Time: 9:00 pm ET
Location: Dort Federal Event Center – Flint, MI
Shields is a heavy favorite and has home field advantage, but this really is as good a fight as she can make at 154, too. Shields has been so much better than her competition that she really is sort of running out of things to do in boxing at age 25, and it’s no wonder she’s looking to give MMA a try later this year.
The rest of the PPV card is what it is, basically. Danielle Perkins and Monika Harrison met in Salita Promotions’ one UFC Fight Pass show last year, and they’re fighting each other again because there are a whopping 13 women’s heavyweights in the world. Marlen Esparza is on the card facing Shelly Barnett, and Jamie Mitchell takes on Noemi Bosques, who is better than her record and has faced a lot of top women’s boxing names.

Claressa Shields (10-0, 2 KOs) will continue her quest to stamp her name all over boxing’s record books on Friday night when she takes on Marie-Eve Dicaire (17-0, 0 KOs) in a women’s junior-middleweight unification fight. She’ll also be looking to prove she is the type of fighter who can draw in fans as a headliner after a long, frustrating battle to get back into the ring.
Shields and Dicaire are the main event of an all-female pay-per-view card at the Dort Federal Events Center in Shields’ hometown of Flint, Michigan. The undefeated 25-year-old holds the WBC and WBO junior-middleweight titles, while Dicaire is the IBF champion (the winner will also take hold of the WBA belt).
Shields already unified the middleweight titles when she beat Christina Hammer in April 2019. She’s on the cusp of unifying another division in just her 11th pro fight.
Dicaire, an undefeated southpaw, doesn’t have the name recognition of Shields, but she’s no slouch. Ring Magazine rates her as the second-best fighter in the junior-middleweight division behind Shields. There’s no one better to try to pull off an upset on a big night for women’s boxing.
According to ESPN.com’s Michael Rothstein, negotiations with Showtime stalled out over the course of several months after the initial cancellation, so Shields, manager Mark Taffet and her promoter Dimitry Salita finally decided to put together their own pugilistic venture:
