Re: Claressa Shields vs. Christina Hammer - Showtime
I'd like to see hammer win also. Shields just talks too much for what skill she has. For me, this will come down to how well Hammer can keep shields to the outside. Shields is going to come in and muddy this up and try to win it on work rate. Hammer has to tie her up effectively and/ or make her pay. Seeing how Hammer folded from those rabbit punches in her no contest with Mathis and how big of a deal Shields made of an unintentional butt against Gabriels, I wouldnt be surprised to see this end on a foul or controversy .
They want your @$$ beat because upsets make news. News brings about excitement, excitement brings about ratings. The objective is to bring you up to the tower and tear your @$$ down. And if you don't believe that, you're crazy.
