Talented boxer Claressa Shields might have 99 problems but confidence is certainly not one of them.
The 25-year-old American star recently made some bold claims as she blatantly stated she could take on 98% of boxers.
This was after many experts likened her to the great Muhammad Ali, considered one of the best ever in the sport.
Shields is an undisputed middleweight champion and could potentially further her incredible legacy on Friday, March 5.
On her Instagram, the young boxer refers to herself as the ‘GWOAT’ (Greatest Woman of All Time).
She is very vocal on social media on various matters including social injustices, and was one of the many people who called for justice after the death of George Floyd.
Speaking ahead of her bout with Marie-Eve Dicaire, Shields told Sky Sports, “”I don’t box for a hobby. It’s not a hobby. It’s my career, and I feel like people underestimate me when I speak about how great I am,”
Notice how she used the phrase “how great I am” which is similar to Muhammad Ali’s most famous speeches where he said “I’ll show you how great I am”.
