Claressa Shields, the current women’s IBF, WBA, WBC, and WBO world middleweight boxing champion, is currently threatening legal action against fans and networks after a video surfaced showing her being dropped in training by Arturs Ahmetovs, a retired male professional boxer with a record of 6-1-0.

Ahmetovs released the 2018 sparring footage on December 6, which showed him flooring Shields with a crisp jab-cross-hook combination.

Shields quickly took to X, alleging that Ahmetovs removed padding from his gloves after Shields “embarrassed him earlier that week.”

The discourse continued on Shield’s feed, with many fans reminding “the GWOAT” that she was getting her just desserts after past remarks that she would beat Keith Thurman and Gennadiy Golovkin in boxing.

Ultimately, Shields released a statement on her Instagram story, threatening legal action against fans and networks claiming she got KO’d in the footage.
