SHIELDS STOPS ADLER IN FIVE

Hernandez hands Tikhonov first loss
Claressa Shields TKO5 Nikki Adler: Claressa Shields captured the IBF and WBC super middleweight titles, becoming Salita Promotions first world champion in sensational fashion in tonight's Shobox main event. It was evident very early into the fight that Shields was far too much for the Adler, whose work rate fell off a cliff from round two on. Shields, 4-0 (2), was able to land at will and battered Adler from pillar to post. The beating was mercifully stopped in the fifth round. Source: Shobox
Jesse Hernandez TKO5 Vladimir Tikhonov: After a very competitive first two rounds, super bantamweight Jesse Hernandez, 9-1-1 (7), was in control against previously undefeated Vladimir Tikhonov, 15-1-1, in tonight's Shobox co-main event. Tikhonov landed well early, but there didn't appear to be too much snap on his punches. Hernandez was able to hurt Tikhonov to the body and head in round four and finished him off in the fifth.
