    If not for boxing, no one would know who she was

      She seriously overvalues herself. I suppose watching her in MMA is more compelling than watching her in boxing though.

        i respect shields for working hard, making history at the olympics, and being a solid boxer. that said, this sport is the ultimate form of capitalism. you get paid when you generate revenue and you need to be entertaining. she hasn't had a knockout in almost five years. her personality is fairly cringeworthy. she's not good looking. all of these things work against her and it's just a reality that she is paid what she is worth based on these factors.

The big gloves take away what little power they have. Sports that utilize lower body strength like MMA, kickboxing, muy thai are better. MMA has small gloves.
          Careful with the facts, you might TRIGGER somebody.

            She is boring, unlikeable and plays the vicitm card far too much. It's no wonder most promoters don't want anything to do with her. Good luck in MMA!

              She's going to find out that MMA is no better. I mean besides Ronda Rousey, what women have been big stars? And let's be honest, Rousey was popular because she was attractive, she was spoon feed opponents, to keep her popularity in place, once she fought an actual fighter, she got blasted.

                Hold up, she's complaining about 1 million dollar paydays? Shane Mosley apparently only got 600k to fight Pacquiao. I don't hear him complaining about sexism. That fight probably did more sales than all of her fights combined.

                  I think your confused, Mosley got 5 million for Pac, he got 600k for Canelo, because that was when Canelo was 21 just coming up and fighting on the Cotto vs Mayweather undercard.

                    Good call, you're right. I just remember seeing the article the other day where he bet a million on himself. Damn good undercard fight. Canelo vs Mosley these days would be PPV headliner lol.

                      Depends how you define "big" when it comes to women fighters. Theres nobody as big as Ronda but she was literally a top 5 combat sports draw of the last decade, male or female. People like Nunes, Valentina, Rose, PVZ, Cyborg arent on her level but they are much bigger stars than Claressa, Katie Taylor etc.

                      Ronda was not spoon fed opponents either, thats total BS. Holm had been in the UFC for 9 months and had had 2 fights there when she got to fight Ronda for ****s sake, its not like she was kept away. And Nunes could have fought Ronda much earlier if she hadnt lost to Zingano, who got the title shot vs Ronda instead as a result and lost.
