August 7, 2019

FLINT, Mich. (AP) — Claressa Shields’ fight against Ivana Habazin has been rescheduled for Oct. 5.

The fight was originally scheduled for Aug. 17, but it was postponed because Shields injured her knee. This is Shields’ first professional fight in her hometown of Flint.

The fight on Showtime is for the vacant WBO junior middleweight title.

Shields (9-0) defeated Christina Hammer in April. Habazin (20-3) is ranked No. 1 by the WBO at 154 pounds. This is the Croatian’s U.S. debut.
