Claressa aka The GWOAT, joins the REVEL platform for an exclusive three part series to discuss her journey over the past decade to becoming arguably the greatest woman boxer of all time. In her historic career, she has only suffered one loss and it was as an amateur back in 2012. She will look to erase it, with her highly anticipated upcoming rematch. We will follow Claressa as she prepares for her big fight and give fans an inside look to her training, and how she mentally prepares for these big moments.
Our moderator will also be bringing up a few fans to ask questions and share their favorite Claressa moments!

Get to Know Claressa Shields

Claressa Shields is a professional boxer and mixed martial artist. She was introduced to the sport of boxing as a child through her father, who told her stories of boxing legend Laila Ali. Claressa began her boxing career at 11 years old under the guidance of Jason Crutchfield. She recalls her grandmother always telling her, “Whatever you do, don’t stop boxing.” Grandma Adams knew that the sport could take her far in life and Claressa proved her right.

Claressa’s boxing achievements show that she truly is the GWOAT. Claressa won two Junior Olympic championships and qualified to the 2012 Olympic Trials at just 17 years old. She went on to become a member of Team USA for the 2012 Olympics, where she became the first American boxer to win an Olympic gold medal. Four years later she earned her second Olympic gold in Brazil, making her the first American boxer to win two consecutive Olympic gold medals.

In addition to her Olympic success, Claressa has a long list of accolades, which include earning multiple world championship titles in three weight classes, earning a title at the 2015 Pan American Games, being only one of seven boxers to hold all major boxing titles and being the only boxer to hold all major boxing titles in two weight classes.

Claressa is very passionate about supporting her hometown of Flint, Michigan and female athletes. She wears blue in her hair to help raise awareness for the Flint water crisis and often advocates for equal pay and opportunities for women in sports.

Claressa’s hard work and dedication to her sport does not go unnoticed by her friends, family, opponents, and coaches. “She’s elite, a very hardworking world champion that will do what’s necessary to remain on top,” said her coach, Gerald Tucker.

What to Expect

REVEL Moments are #humanfirst, which means we will focus on the human behind the athlete and bring to life untold stories, insights, and lessons learned that can inspire, educate, or uplift everyone. 

What to Expect

We want REVEL Moments events to be fun, intimate, and empathetic — leaving you with moments of elevation, pride, and insight about your host and their path in life. To do this we want you to be part of the event so get ready:
  • To be on screen (as the audience will be visible)!
  • Submit a question in advance of the event as you may get a chance to join us on stage and ask the question live.
  • If so moved (+ over 21 years old!) grab an adult beverage and sit back to enjoy the athlete joining you in the room.
A typical REVEL Moments event lasts between 45 - 60 minutes. For more details check out our FAQs.

How many other people will be there?

REVEL Moments events are meant to feel intimate and have been crafted so you feel like you are in a small setting, truly learning who your host is. The number of tickets issued for each event will vary and always be limited.

How can I provide input into what stories I would like to learn about?

Join the conversation! Every time you purchase a ticket, you will be asked to respond to a 1-minute survey about what you would like your host and moderator to talk about. We review every response and incorporate them into the planned content for that event.
