Claressa Shields won world championships in three weight divisions in just 10 fights as a professional boxer and she then signed a contract to compete in the Professional Fighters League. The two-time Olympic gold medalist has been training in New Mexico with Jon ‘Bones’ Jones and she appeared on Heavy Live With Scoop B and talked about him.
This is what she said when Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson asked her if she could see Jones transitioning into the WWE: “I can see Johnny Bones making a transition from MMA to boxing,” Shields told Robinson.
“Heavyweight boxing. That’s what I see. I don’t see WWE. To me, that’s more like a clown show; the WWE. Johnny Bones is a serious person especially when it comes to training and his teaching.
We’ve had two classes to where I spent countless hours with Johnny Bones and he was teaching me and breaking stuff down that looked so complex, but breaking it down into 1-2-3-4… breaking it down into steps from the beginning. So I look at him as a serious guy.
So if I was to show him what I know in boxing and shows me what he knows in MMA, I believe that when he learns these simple basics with his hands and how to stand… Awww man. I think he would be so freakin’ dangerous in boxing because he’s really just… inside that cage. I mean, we all seen it. He’s a DANGEROUS guy.”
