Olympic gold medalist boxer Claressa Shields offers to train Ronda Rousey

Claressa-Shields

Ronda Rousey would be wise to work on her boxing skills before her inevitable rematch against Holly Holm, and an olympic gold medalist has offered to help her with that.

Claressa Shields, who became the first American woman to win a boxing gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics, reached out to Rousey via Twitter on Sunday.

The last thing Rousey wants to do is get into a boxing match with Holm, who was a champion boxer before she made her MMA debut. If you watched the fight (video here), you saw Holm dictate the pace against Rousey and turn the match into a slugfest, which is the opposite of what Rousey wants in a rematch.

But should it happen again, Rousey wants to be prepared. Between Shields’ offer and the support for received from this famous boxer, Rousey should have plenty of help when she tries to get her title back.
