Although I'm only basing it on her Twitter posts, Shields is a really unlikable personality.

Hopefully Hammer humbles her.
She is bit of a jeckel and hyde, she can't take criticism at all and comes across as a bitter scouser, plus she clearly don't rate honkies.

Yet in some interviews she comes across as quite funny and likeable in parts.

Hammer really should win, hopefully she's on that 1980s German athlete regime :yep

Oh boy...

This bullshit again. Yeah, how come the greatest male table tennis player in the world, Ma Long is only worth $20 million, when Serena Williams is worth $180 million? Sexist! Or maybe, just maybe, it's because tennis generates more revenue than table tennis, has a wider world wide fanbase, and thus both the events and sponsors pay Williams more. Not because they don't like men, or Chinese people, but because Long is bossing it in a sport that makes less money.

Guess what Shields? You generate less money than the male boxers, so you earn less. It's why utter shite like Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj makes them richer than a musician in a top orchestra or a brilliant songwriter like Ben Howard. They generate more money, they earn more money.

Fucking cretins bleating on about pay gaps in sports where they generate far less money is mind blowing. I hope Hammer beats the crap out of her.

I'd also point out that, if Shields was a man, she'd be in a much, much deeper talent pool. So it would make it unlikely she'd even get beyond domestic level, let alone be 'one of the most famous boxers'.

Shields is #1 in a division that has 31 active boxers. Her ego is ridiculous.

Both look like they're on good 'regimes' to me. :yep

I'd like to see Hammer win but the bookies have her at 33/10 to Shields 3/10. Based on that it seems highly unlikely.

The bookies aren't usually that wrong.

Before I throw her a breadcrumb of praise, has she mentioned her colour yet?
The vast majority of the comments are people saying it's because of racism. :lol: Yeah, because black athletes just never get big media attention and global hype. I mean...sure there was/is Jordan, Woods, Serena Williams, Usain Bolt, Lewis Hamilton, Lebron James, AJ, PBF...but black athletes just don't get any fair coverage.

She's in a niche sport with 31 fucking women in her entire division. Rousey was a first. She got attention because she became the first ever female UFC fighter and she then won every fucking fight inside about 20 seconds with the same finish. It made her stand out, it was like something from a WWE script...a genuine "finishing move" that seemed to work every time. She was also fucking hated, and the delight around the world when she got KO'd was FAR greater than any delight that would be shown if Shields lost.

If it's racism, then how come the very same things affecting Shields are affecting Christina Hammer? Fucking morons.
