According to numerous sources in Canada, an agreement has been reached for Claressa Shields to stake her titles against another undefeated world champion, Canadian star Marie Eve Dicaire.
The contest is slated to take place on May 9 in Shields' backyard of Flint, Michigan.
Shields holds the WBC, WBO world titles at junior middleweight, while Dicaire is the IBF's world champion.
Back in January, Shields moved down in weight to dominated Ivana Habazin over ten rounds to capture the WBC, WBO titles. Shields is still undisputed champion at middleweight, with the WBC, WBO, IBF and WBA titles around her waist.
Dicaire brings an undefeated record of 17-0, but has yet to score a knockout inside the distance. Shield has captured world titles in three weight classes in only ten fights, with two knockouts on her record.
Dicaire started her career around the welterweight division, and then moved up to junior middleweight - and captured the IBF title in February of 2018.
Shields started out at super middleweight, where she captured her first world title.
A two-time Olympic gold medal winner, Shields has far more experience and faced a better level of opposition in the pro ranks.
Dicaire is promoted by Yvon Michel of GYM. Michel reached an agreement with Shields' manager, Mark Taffet.
Reportedly a press conference will be held on Monday in Michigan. Then, on March 23, Shields and Dicaire will hold another press conference in Montreal in order to set the stage for their fight.
