Christina Hammer’s Exclusive Interview on her fight against Claressa Shields
What goal have you set for your boxing career? What is your "boxing dream"
My true dream is to be a successful boxer in The States. A victory over Claressa Shields would lead to even more great things to come in America and I have been preparing steadfast in hopes of a great win on April 13th!
Is Claressa Shields your dream opponent?
This fight is definitely the most important of my athletic career. Claressa Shields is a very special opponent. We are very different, but also both have strong personalities and have been known to fight well and fight to win. I have studied Shields’ fighting techniques since her Olympic days and know her weaknesses and what it will take to defeat her.
Are you prepared as a boxer specifically targeted at the respective opponent?
Yes, I prepare for each fight and each opponent individually. My team and I have given specific attention to this upcoming Super Fight vs. Shields. I know Claressa wants to keep her belts, but belts do not necessarily bring experience and experience is where I will have the advantage in the ring.
What's the first thing you treat yourself to after a fight?
Smile ... z. For example, after my last fight in the US, I remember, there was a burger shop around the corner and me and my brother we just ran to the burger shop and ordered 5 cheeseburgers. Terrific! I liked it very much. And in the weeks after the fight, my personal life doesn’t have to take a back seat to my fighting life. I get to go out with my friends and enjoy quality family time, until my next fight prep where I will be 100% committed to securing a victory, although I have always been known to stay hungry in the interim.
What goals will come after the fight against Claressa Schields?
No goals are currently to be mentioned until after I have taken the four belts from Claressa Shields back to my native land of Germany!
