Shields VS Hammer - All Access

Recommended Posts

Worth a look - Hammer is a favorite over seas. 24-0 and a lot of hype.   Has not fought in the USA much and when she did she beat a Tori Nelson that was not in her prime. The last time Shields vs Hammer was set (2018) , Hammer pulled out due to mysterious medical issues that were later said to be something like 'gluten intolerance' or celiac disease lol.  Fight is back on. The All Access is good. I hope Shields whoops her with some style.

I need to do more research on Hammer but I think she has the right style to give Shields problems it's just a matter if she can outbox her all fight without getting overwhelmed & succumbing to the pressure.  Good to see two big name female fighters square off against eatchother. Would like to see Serrano,Taylor, Hardy & Braekus mix it up as well.

I agree.  Hammer has reach and has won many of her fights using just that.  If Shields has improved any defensive holes I think she will come out on top.  Her training has been impressive.  I know she was training with John David Jackson in FL... They have cast a bitter rivalry between them (the fighters) which just adds to the drama.  I agree, more big name fights would be great.  Hardy vs anyone ever with talent would be great to see - Braekus vs Mc Carter would be a good on as well.

Shields opened up as a -400 fav & I believe is sitting at around -350 now. I'm curious whether or not she deserves that price tag. I honestly think it's just a matter of time till she gets beat & if Hanmer is the one to do it I may be able to cash in. Time for research!

Just saw Hammers DQ victory where she basically got KO'd & now feel like Shields will take this. Hammer will put some rounds in the bank but I think Shields eventually gets to her & gets a tko. No bets though.

Shields did a great job. Dominated Hammer from rd 1 on & had her holding on for dear life towards the end.

Yes, this was a great fight. I had hoped Shields would get a stoppage and could see at the end she was trying to.  I was impressed by how composed Shields was, & how she listened to her corner and stuck to the plan.  I liked the combination of coming forward and boxing and countering from the outside. Hammer was not so sassy after the fight lol but I supposed she displayed that she had a chin, lol. :war

Hammer needs to work on countering with her right hand. When someone gets past her jab Hammer needs to be able to throw a counter right hand straight down the pipe OR an uppercut a la lucien bute & zab judah. It seemed like she just grabbed & held a lot, moved away or starting winging shots. She struggled to land any good counters that would put some doubt in shields offense & make her back off & think twice before advancing.
