PFL 4: Claressa Shields vs. Brittney Elkin live results and highlights
The second half of the 2021 Professional Fighters League (PFL) season is ready to kick off in Atlantic City, NJ. PFL 4 features the second regular-season fight for most men’s featherweight and lightweight combatants, as well as the professional MMA debut of women’s boxing champion Claressa Shields in the main event against Brittney Elkin.
Shields, the only American boxer to win back-to-back Olympic gold medals, is a perfect 11-0 in professional boxing, winning 10 titles across three weight classes already. In her most recent boxing match, in March, she defeated Marie-Eve Dicaire to become undisputed women’s middleweight champion — Shields’ second time becoming undisputed champion at a weight class.
Elkin hasn’t fought since January 2019, when she lost to Bobbi-Jo Dalziel. Elkin fought Kayla Harrison in the judo gold medalist’s pro-MMA debut with the PFL in 2018, losing by first-round submission.
