Mike Tyson, Claressa Shields

Mike Tyson was spotted teaching female boxing star Claressa Shields a couple of his brutal combinations.

PFL fighter and boxing world champion Claressa Shields has recently link up with boxing legend Mike Tyson in the set of his own podcast, “Hot Boxin’ With Mike Tyson.”

While the said episode is yet to be released, bits of what went down during the taping revealed that Tyson demonstrated some of his signature combinations to Shields.

In a shot video clip posted by World Boxing Council’s official Twitter account, the 55-year-old could be seen throwing a body shot followed by a swift right hand uppercut.

Shields, on the other hand, was enamored by what she just saw from “Iron Mike.”


In a brief interview with Elie Seckbach of EsNews, Shields revealed that Tyson has referred to her as the greatest woman [fighter] of all time (GWOAT) and that the former heavyweight champ indeed was trying to teach her a particular combination.

To Tyson’s surprise, Shields said that as they watch one of her fights, her “next combination” was exactly what the boxing legend was talking about.

“I decided that I am no longer going to react [to cynics] because I am the greatest woman of all time,” Shields explained. “’Iron’ Mike Tyson said it! We sat down and watched my fights together and he just was like, ‘Wow!’.”

“He said, ‘After you throw a right hand, come back with a hook,’ and then my next combination was a right hand and a hook,” she continued. “He was like, ‘Oh, you know what you are doing. Absolutely!'”
