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!
