The much-anticipated fight for the undisputed female middleweight championship between Claressa Shields and Christina Hammer on November 17 in Atlantic City is off. Shields stated via social media that Hammer has an undisclosed medical condition.

Claressa Shields: Very, very, very disappointed. I’ll let my team do the announcement! But what I will say is… I want this fight 100%. I am not the one sick. Idk the ins and outs of Hammers condition, but she can’t box til March the doctor says. I’m still going to fight the 17th of Nov 😟 I’m sorry to hit y’all with the bad news…. it should be some kind of press release announcing about what’s going on. I’m just putting out the information that I know. But umm yeah…. I’m just going to stay focused and in the gym. Love and peace
