Before Betting on Claressa Shields vs. Kelsey DeSantis

Claressa Shields is a boxing legend who’s one of only three boxers ever with four major boxing titles in two divisions. She’s undefeated in this sport with a 14-0 record.

However, boxing isn’t the only combat sport she’s been taking part in. Three years ago, she fought two MMA fights, winning one by a TKO and losing the other one by a split decision.

Fast-forward to February 24 and she’s fighting again. This time, her opponent is former US Marine Kelsey DeSantis.

She’s a Florida-based MMA fighter who’s only fought three professional fights in 35 years. DeSantis lost her first professional fight – in 2013 – after which she took a 10-year break. She made her comeback in September 2023 but lost again.

Just a month and one week later, she fought again. This time, she recorded her first-ever pro MMA win by beating her opponent with a first-round knockout.
