Claressa Shields has vacated the WBC super middleweight title earlier this year, largely because of the fact no one would fight her there and moved down to middleweight to unify the titles with Christina Hammer.

It was announced this week that bout will be elevated from an interim to for the full world title, which will be televised on ESPN.
Some readers might not feel this is much of a story, but why this matters is the fact that both fighters earn more money in the bout now than previously. On top of that, they fight for the outright world title, an honor that many get the chance to do.
