The six-round main event between Shields (1-0) and Szabados (15-8, 6 KOs), that will also be for the Women's NABF Middleweight Championship, tops a quadrupleheader of exciting televised fights.
 
Shields won her first Olympic Gold when she was 17 years old in the inaugural women's boxing competition at the London Games in 2012.  She defended her title at the 2016 Olympics in Rio, becoming the only American boxer to defend amateur sports' premier championship.
 
"Detroit City Gold" marks the return of big-time boxing to the Detroit area, something promoter Dmitriy Salita is proud to be part of.
 
"I started the Detroit Brawl series of shows to get people excited about boxing again and they've responded very well," said Salita. "So now we are bringing a huge event to this great city that was once and will be again a headquarters for boxing. Thank you to all the fans and sponsors and to MGM Grand Detroit for making it possible."
 
The 21-year-old Shields cruised to a 77-1 amateur record before turning professional last November, winning her first bout via unanimous decision on a non-televised undercard in Las Vegas.  She now returns home as a headliner to take on the veteran Szabados in a six-round middleweight bout.
 
Szabados challenged for a world title in July 2015 in her ninth professional fight, losing a decision to undefeated WBC Super Middleweight Champion Nikki Adler in Germany.  The native of Miskolc, Hungary has faced two former world champions, Mikaela Lauren and Noni Tenge, and has won via knockout in three of her last five victories.
 
In her U.S. debut, Szabados lost a 10-round decision to then-undefeated prospect Alicia Napoleon on January 29, 2016, in Queens, N.Y.  The 26-year-old has remained active since turning professional in 2014.  She fought eight fights in 2016, and already has a win in 2017 via fifth round KO over Diana Marcz in January in Budapest, Hungary.

This is a more bs 2nd fight & title fight than it looks like upon first glance. Her opponent has 9 of her 15 wins vs ladies with break even records/pro debut opponents or losing records & her vast experience…

Anything above WW in female boxing has little to offer the divisions are extremely weak...

I hope Szabados won't be too much for this kid, she's no pushover and has over 20 pro fights. I think Shields should've got someone a bit...safer? Only her second pro fight.
