Claressa Shields has always been known to send a message through her outfits, especially when it matters the most. In a 2021 fight against Marie Eve Dicaire, she paid tributes to three people through her ring walkout outfit. She paid homage to the late Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna Bryant. Moreover, Shields also paid her respect to Chadwick Boseman, as all three of them left the Earth that year.
Later, in the biggest fight of her career, Shields donned the outfit of the famous character in ‘Rocky’ series, Apollo Creed. Thus, signifying the mindset of never giving up, as Creed chose to die for the love of boxing. That’s what Shields wanted to tell the world through her outfit when she walked towards her bout against Savannah Marshall. Similarly, Shields again surprised the fans with her amazing Halloween costume.
