Shields vs Zabados: NABF Proud!
The NABF is excited to have two women of this quality fighting for our Belt.
Out of respect to women athletes, and given their lack of opportunity, we, as a Regional Belt, welcome the 6 round, title fight for women athletes of this caliber, and the use of amateur records to determine eligibility.
As an organization, the NABF has a passionate history of supporting female athetes. It is our great privielge and responisbilty to sanction the Shields vs Zabados bout; an iconic fight marking a first for women's boxing on a major USA Network.
We wish both athletes the best of luck!
Duane Ford, NABF President
