Claressa Shields to fight WBC champion Adler in August

DETROIT (AP) Two-time Olympic boxing champion Claressa Shields is set to face unbeaten WBC super middleweight champion Nikki Adler on Aug. 4 in Detroit.

Shields, a Flint native, has won all three of her fights as a pro. Adler will make a third defense of her WBC 168-pound title. The vacant IBF super middleweight championship also will be at stake.

"I think she just has really that dominance that comes with her," Shields said. "She's the champ, and I have to go in and take her belt."
