Claressa Shields, a celebrated two-time Olympic gold medalist and undisputed middleweight champion of the world, took to Flint Michigan recently – not for a fight in the ring but rather an opportunity to give back. Amid cheers from enthusiastic kids at her training program launch she helped guide them through their punches while imparting valuable tips on technique.
“Boxing saved my life and boxing changed who I am and made me a better person,” Shields said. “So I really want to be able to give that same thing back to the community here in Flint.”mlive.com
