Natasha Jonas Challenges Claressa Shields: “Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

In a fiery exchange of words, Natasha Jonas, the two-weight world champion from Britain, has issued a challenge to Claressa Shields, the American boxing star. Shields had previously issued a knockout warning to Jonas while watching her become the IBF welterweight champion by defeating Kandi Wyatt in Manchester.

Jonas, however, wasted no time dismissing Shields’ threat and questioning her knockout credentials. During an interview with Sky Sports, Jonas retorted, “Who has she knocked out? Let’s be honest.” She further called Shields to prove herself by meeting her at the weight of 147 lbs, saying, “Put your money where your mouth is and let’s see if she does.”

Adding to the excitement, Jonas expressed interest in a potential clash with Chantelle Cameron, the undisputed super-lightweight world champion from Britain. Despite their friendship, both fighters acknowledged the significance of the matchup and expressed their willingness to face each other in the ring. Jonas praised Cameron’s exceptional skills and recognized her victories over undefeated undisputed champion Katie Taylor and undisputed champion Jessica McCaskill.

The boxing world eagerly awaits the outcomes of these potential matchups, as Jonas, Shields, and Cameron showcase their talent and determination inside the ropes. The clashes between these remarkable fighters promise thrilling encounters that will undoubtedly captivate fans worldwide.
