Claressa Shields has challenged Jake Paul to a $100,000 winner-takes-all sparring session over six rounds.
The pair have been embroiled in a long-term feud after Shields insisted she would ’embarrass’ Paul by knocking him out with one hand.
However, Shields is ready to settle their differences over a high-stake sparring session and has demanded Paul’s assistant trainer J’Leon Love set it up.

Shields took to Twitter to say: ‘I got 100,000$ of my own money I’ll put up that Jake Paul can’t beat me in sparring! That’s on me!
‘Let alone a [email protected] tell ya mans I said what’s up! I fight December 11th, he fight the 18th after that we can sparr 6 rounds!
‘Best 4 out of 6 rounds! If it last all 6.’
The beef between the pair started when Shields insisted she would ’embarrass’ Paul if the pair were to ever meet in the ring – claiming she could beat the ‘play-fighter’ with one hand.
Her comments came shortly after it would be a ‘disrespect’ to ask her to perform on the under-card of a Paul show, with Daniel Dubois, Tommy Fury and Amanda Serrano all fighting before his clash with Woodley earlier this year.
When speaking to Sky Sports about Paul in October, she said: ‘I don’t know what world people live in that they think a man [could beat me] who has not been to the Olympics, who has not fought professionally.
‘There are a lot of women in boxing who could [out-box] men, especially a regular joe like Jake Paul!

‘I know it’s too much to fight him because it would be too embarrassing [for him], but if I were to spar Jake, I could use one hand.
‘Just my jab, I wouldn’t even have to use the banger. Just my jab – I would out-jab, out-hook and out-uppercut him. I would embarrass him.
‘This isn’t a shot at Jake Paul. This is how skilled I am. You’re not as great a boxer as me. If you are? Go to the Olympics and [win a] medal! Go!
‘Because I sparred those guys too who are Olympic silver and gold medallists. Jake couldn’t grace the ring with those guys because they would destroy him, just like I would.
‘This isn’t disrespectful. I am a skilled boxer – respect it and know it. Just because I’m a woman? This is real-life stuff. I box for real. I’m not a play-fighter.’
However, Paul hit back after Shields picked up her first professional loss in combat sport after ending up on the wrong side of a split decision in PFL 10 against 21-year-old Abigail Montes
However, Paul hit back at Shields after she picked up her first professional loss in combat sport after ending up on the wrong side of a split decision in PFL 10 against 21-year-old Abigail Montes.
He released a statement saying: ‘The truth hurts but it’s necessary. Clarissa Shields is a loser. In MMA, and even more so with her prima donna attitude. The fake always get exposed. Losses come when anger and hate take over.
‘Just ask Rousey and McGregor. She spent more time berating Jake Paul than learning Jiu Jitsu. She’s never been a big draw and unfortunately for her she will never be.
‘Amanda Serrano (the GWOAT) though, has 30 KOs in 42 fights. 2-0 in MMA, both wins by submissions. Congrats Abigail Montes on the win.’
