Claressa Shields has street named after her in hometown of Flint, Michigan

The city of Flint, Michigan honoured its favourite daughter Claressa Shields by renaming a hometown street where she grew up after her.

Mayor Sheldon Neely confirmed the change of Spencer Street to Claressa Shields Street on Sunday to the delight of the two-time Olympic gold medalist and undisputed middleweight and light middleweight boxing champion.

Shields, 26, entered mixed martial arts earlier this year, defeating Brittany Elkin in her PFL debut at PFL 4 in June.

I could not be more happier today y’all! I had a great time at church! So thankful to everyone who came out to worship with me today! I was surprised by the Mayor of Flint! The street I grew up on Spencer street is being named after me “Claressa Shields Street” 😇😭 My grandma would be so PROUD!!!! I delivered a great message today! I feel so special!!! I’m overjoyed

Shields is expected to compete in the company’s 2023 season, but her second bout is scheduled for Oct. 23 against Abigail Montes at PFL 10.
