Claressa Shields has had herself a rapid rise through to boxing ranks to become one of the most talented all-around fighters in the world, and she's just as gifted as a showwoman as well. Shields' walkout before her fight against Croatian Ivana Habazin Friday night involved some Beyonce, some dancing, a crown, and frankly too much swag for us to handle.

That's why she's the self-proclaimed Greatest Woman of All Time. That's right, the GWOAT.

Shields proceeded to wipe the floor with Habazin, as the 24-year-old won the vacant WBC and WBO light middleweight titles by unanimous decision to go along with her unisputed world middleweight championship.

In this fight, Shields became the fastest boxer, male or female, to win word title belts in three separate weight classes, doing so in just 10 fights. The previous record was held by Ukranian superstar and men's pound-for-pound king Vasyl Lomachenko, who did so in 11 fights.

When you've broken one of Loma's records, you know you are in rarified air. Shields is in a class of her own when it comes to dominating the women's ranks, and achievements like this one are only going to help her legend grow.
