DETROIT -- On a milestone night for female boxers, Claressa Shields gave herself rave reviews.
Shields became the first woman to headline a boxing card on premium cable, stopping Szilvia Szabados in the fourth round Friday night in their fight for the NABF middleweight championship on Showtime.
Referee Harvey Dock stopped the fight 1:30 into the fourth, after Shields had landed a strong left-handed punch to the head of Szabados.
